Hickory Point's Amenities for Boaters are Right on Target

Averaging almost one fishing tournament every weekend, the Lake County Water Authority’s 68-acre Hickory Point Recreational Facility is quickly becoming a headquarters for Central Florida anglers.

Hickory Point Boat Ramp

Created as a unique, recreational waterfront park, Hickory Point premiered in February 1992. With 12 paved boat ramps, including two that can accommodate deep-draft vessels, and ample parking for vehicle and boat trailers, the park offers the basic amenities for all sort of anglers. However, Hickory Point is no average recreational park.

Boaters often find the park as a perfect destination for a day’s outing because of the numerous facilities provided. Along with the boat ramps into Lake Harris, Hickory Point offers a day-use marina (no overnight mooring allowed) with an observation platform and two fishing piers.

Hickory Point Recreational Facility

The park also features a swimming beach, boardwalks, outdoor picnic areas with barbecue grills, open-field play areas, nature trail, playground, horseshoe pits and a sand volleyball court.

The highlight of Hickory Point is its two-story, screened picnic pavilion with first-floor picnic tables and barbecue grills. The second floor features two screened banquet rooms. The pavilion can accommodate small groups or large gatherings of up to 275 people.

For more information or pavilion reservations, call the Lake County Water Authority at 352-324-6141.

The Hickory Point Recreational Facility of Tavares, Fla., is located at 27341 State Road 19. The park is open 24 hours, but pavilion is only open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Pavilion rental fees range between $35 and $295. For more information or pavilion reservations, call 352-324-6141 or log on to
