The north side of this lake can be reached from Maranatha Village, a Christian retirement community. However, a high-crime neighborhood borders the lake on the south side. This route of access should be avoided. Says John Roony
This lake is so wonderful. Camping is available at Lake Bonnet Village, and you're sure to come across some great folks from Sebring here. All the outdoors amusing things in the neighborhood of Lake Lucas will keep you coming
back persistently. Looking for something near Lake Lucas? Dinner Lake is in the vicinity. The Footman Trail is a wonderful hiking trail right next door to Lake Lucas, and don't leave without stopping by Highlands Hammock State Park.
