Winter Haven Florida’s Northern Chain of Lakes

Winter Haven Florida has two separate chain of lakes. The Northern Chain of lakes contains the numerous lakes. Here they are along with some information about each lake.

Winter Haven FL Chain Of Lakes

Lake Conine

Lake Conine is also known locally as Lake Connie. This lake has no public beaches or boat ramps. However, fishing is always allowed there and you can reach Lake Conine from other lakes on the chain. The lake has a surface area of around 237 acres.

Lake Echo

Lake Echo is 68.92-acre lake, near perfectly round and is actually inside the city of Alfred. Lake Echo is connected to Lake Rochelle by a shallow canal which is never passable. There is a boat ramp on Lake Echo on its’ northwestern shore.

Lake Fannie

Lake Fannie has a surface area of around 802 acres. This is another of the lakes that has infrequent accessibility. In dryer years you may only be able to access this lake by the boat ramp located on the northeast bank near the Walmart Distribution Center.

Lake Haines

Lake Haines is a large and beautiful lake. This lake has a surface area of 719 acres and is connected to Lake Rochelle to the south. There are two nice boat ramps here but I believe only one is a public launch. The Lake Haines Launch is on the western shore at the end of East Haines Blvd.

Lake Hamilton

Lake Hamilton is a very large lake and even has 2, sometimes 3 islands. The surface area of Lake Hamilton is 2,184 acres or about 3 ½ square miles. Plenty of room for whatever you want to do. Seaplanes have noticed the size. Sample Park is most likely where you will have to get your boat into this lake. You can normally navigate to Little and Middle Lake Hamilton to the east and Lake Fannie to the west.

Little Lake Hamilton

Little Lake Hamilton is not the smallest to f these lakes. It is the furthest east of the three and Middle Lake Hamilton is between the two hence the name Middle Lake. I guess Furthest East Lake Hamilton was just to long of a name.

Middle Lake Hamilton

Middle Lake Hamilton is located and connected to both Lake Hamilton and Little Lake Hamilton. This lake is on the northeast side of it’s largest neighbor and its’ shoreline is almost completely lined with housing of one sort or another. A canal on its’ eastern side passes under US-27 to Little Lake Hamilton.

Lake Henry

Lake Henry is yet another mid-size lake with a surface area just over one square mile. In fact, it is 848 acres is the estimated surface area. One surprising fact is the max depth of nearly 80 feet. Water flow does connect this lake to the chain but you may not be able to boat to it.

Lake Rochelle

Lake Rochelle is a beautiful lake which is connected via canal to Lake Haines and Lake Conine. Just do not always expect to navigate to them. Water level may very well affect your ability to do so. There is a public boat ramp on the northwest shore. The ramp is in a very small park maintained by the city of Lake Alfred.

Lake Smart

Lake Smart is a smaller lake having a surface area of only 277 acres. There is no public boat ramp that I know of or public beaches. The lake is connected to Lake Conine and Lake Fannie but Lake Fannie is likely not navigable. Lake Smart is close to one mile long at its furthest points.
