Amazing Peck Lake

Nearby Floridays RV Park in Hobe Sound, there’s a little piece of heaven called Peck Lake, known only by a few walkers, hikers, and boaters. It’s accessible only by foot or by boat, and it’s a favorite place to go for guests at Floridays.

This is how Rob of the Palm Beach Boating Guide describes it:

At one time this area was an inlet. Sand deposits entirely separated the ocean from the Intracoastal Waterway. This created an anchorage on the Intracoastal side.
Boaters can stop, walk a few hundred feet and enjoy a beautiful ocean side beach. Boats of all sizes anchor in Peck Lake’s sandy bottom. Be careful of shoaling to the south. The best approach is to stay in the Intracoastal until you are directly perpendicular to other anchored boats (or the trail marker that takes you to the beach), then head straight in. Watch out for shallow water! Peck Lake, Florida is a terrific destination, particularly for a day trip from the south. Getting there you will pass the Jupiter Lighthouse, Jupiter Island (the wealthiest place in America), Hobe Sound, and a natural preserve. The manatee zone between Hobe Sound and Peck Lake seems like it goes on forever, but the scenery is beautiful.Source

Trip Advisor names it in the top 8 things to do in Hobe Sound. They point out that access by land is a 5-10 minute walk along a boardwalk over the mangrove swamps and natural vegetation with educational signposts along the way.

Liquid LimoScuba divers and snorkelers will find a reef covered in stony corals and diverse sponges that rises from about 32 feet to about 5 feet at the crest with ledges and caverns, holes and crevices that attract sea turtles, lobster, and reef fish. Divers venturing outside the reef’s crest can find sharks and goliath groupers and strong currents. Visibility can be poor so calm weather is essential with breezes from offshore at high tide. Because of the current, divers should swim into the current and keep track with frequent surface intervals and loop back to the boat. Scuba Stuart offers dive charters.

Floridays RV Park On-site Manager, George Vryhoff, knows Peck Lake like the back of his hand. With his 24’ pontoon boat “Liquid Limo” loaded with guests from the RV park, everyone enjoys a refreshing day on the water at #PeckLake.
