Lakes come in all shapes and sizes, but when it comes to roundness, you won’t find a more naturally-occurring body of water than Florida’s Kingsley Lake, aka Silver Dollar Lake.
Kingsley Lake is a popular summer destination in Florida’s Clay County, as well as one of the best places to fish, but few know that what truly makes this place special is its unusual round shape. The thing is, you can only truly see how round the lake is from high above, which is why its nickname, Silver Lake, was coined by aeroplane pilots flying over it. It’s important to note that Kingsley Lake is not a man-made body of water, but a naturally occurring one which reportedly formed as a sinkhole.
Measuring about two miles across and featuring about 5.5 miles of shoreline, the north and west sides of which host nearly two hundred docks, Kingsley Lake is about 90 feet deep, making it one of the deepest lakes in Florida. This natural anomaly is also considered the oldest and highest lake in Florida.
