Upper Lake Lafayette

Welcome to a Florida Atlas of Lakes waterbody page where you can read about what's happening with this location and view detailed information about this location and its characteristics.

Upper Lake Lafayette is found within Leon County - a County not yet sponsored by the Water Atlas program. You can view any of the Water Atlas County/City programs at WaterAtlas.org.

You are on a page dedicated to Florida Lakes. Florida has more lakes than any other state in the United States and these lakes represent one of Florida's most important natural resources. The University of Florida's LAKEWATCH program, the University of South Florida's Water Atlas program and the Florida Lake Management Society are dedicated to protecting these critical resources through citizen education and support for citizen volunteer programs. If you would like your lake to become a LAKEWATCH lake, please use the volunteer link on this page to contact a LAKEWATCH coordinator. For additional information on the Water Atlas please use the Water Atlas contact link; to become a Florida Lake Management Society (FLMS) member please use the FLMS contact link. We hope you enjoy this page and the many options provided here. Please also explore our interactive FAOL map by using the "View a map of this lake" link above. Finally, the University of Florida IFAS invites you to learn more about lakes by visiting the IFAS website.
