Lake Istokpoga, Lake Istokpoga Windy Point Boat Ramp & Windy Point Park


Lake Istokpoga

Nearly 28,000 acres, Lake Istokpoga is one of the best fishing lakes and the fifth largest lake in the state of Florida. Trailer parking outnumbers car parking, which about 80 trailer spaces. Windy Point Park hosts fishing events throughout the year. This is a pretty park, and we strolled the nature trail around a small lake, where a man and his children were fishing from the deck. The trail is not long, and it’s an easy, flat paved path.
