Plan Your Visit
Whether fishing or paddling, or just watching the sunset from the pier, visitors to Banks Lake can enjoy a unique landscape dominated by moss-draped cypress ringed with water lilies. The best way to experience Banks Lake is from the water, and each season touches the lake with its own mood. Look closely at each tree. Dragonfly nymphs shed their larval skeletons on the cypress bark as they emerge from the water. Spider webs sparkle with dewdrops on a foggy morning. Songbirds and ospreys nest in the moss and treetops. Favored fishing holes yield bream and bass - and a few ten-pounders!
