Lake Jesup Reviews & Ratings

  • Very beautiful

  • An awesome airboat trip around this beautiful lake was filled with exotic birds and plenty of alligators . I look forward to seeing it again !

  • Great place to launch your boat or take a hike in the wilderness area

  • When Disney was being built, some 75 years ago, it was illegal to kill alligators when they were clearing the land, and Lake Jesup was the place they relocated the alligators to - which proved to be an ideal breeding ground for them. Today the lake still gets relocated animals and has a pretty, pristine environment for recreational boating and fishing or watching the 100s of species of birds from ducks, heron, egret, osprey and bald eagles etc

  • Beautiful piece of property along Lake Jesus. With plenty of walking trails even a very interesting bike path this place has it all builds see a lot of wildlife. Just make sure to watch out for the snakes and bring bug repellent for the mosquitoes during the wet season.
