Lake Dora is a small lake in the middle of Mt. Dora. The town has grown up surrounding the lake. They do fish in the lake, but the fertilizer from the yards says don't eat what you catch.

Lake Dora is a very large and picturesque lake. Consider signing up for a tour of the lake via one of the many tour boat companies or try the Cat Boats which are available for rental with a guide.
