Lake County logo

LAKE COUNTY – Due to improvements to the facility, Lake County’s Hickory Point Recreation Complex (located at 27341 FL-19, Tavares, FL) has planned partial closers for on-site boat ramps.

To ensure boating access to Lake Harris throughout construction, the facility's boat ramps will close in phases. The east ramps will be closed for phase one, while the west ramps remain open. Once complete, the east ramps will reopen, and the west ramps will begin construction for phase two. This will leave half of the park's boat ramps open for use at any given time during the construction period. Patrons are asked to adhere to ramp closure signage and new traffic routes through various stages of the project.

Construction is estimated to last 260 days, and will begin Wednesday, May 15, 2024.
