Nestled within the heart of Orlando, just minutes from large attractions like Universal Studios, lies Bill Frederick Park At Turkey Lake, an oasis for those looking to get away from the crowds of tourists and theme park visitors. After a stop at the ranger station and payment of the $4 day use fee, visitors are greeted with 183 acres of lakeside scenery, picnic areas, a campground, fishing piers, nature trails, and even a children's farm!

The picnic area of the park is spacious and surrounded by lush greenery. Visitors can set up for the day in rental pavilions that overlook the lake, complete with picnic tables and grills. A playground and restroom are located nearby, as well as a disc golf course that winds throughout the park.

Continuing on past the picnic area of the park, either via road or one of the park's nature trails, leads to the camping area. Here, there are air conditioned cabins, full hook up RV slots, and primitive tent spaces all available for rent - the perfect alternative to the area's many theme park hotels. During the day, keep an eye out for tortoise visitors; the whole camping area is surrounded by endangered gopher tortoise habitat! Visitors can explore this important ecosystem by either nature trail or the bike loop.

Of course, what the lake is most famous for is its world-renowned bass fishing. The park was featured in Bassmaster and ESPN's "Casting Crew," and permitted anglers can even rent aluminum bass boats at the park marina for $32 a day. Fishing piers are also constructed in various locations around the lake, and all are easily accessible. As always, remember your valid fishing license, and make sure to clean up your gear!
