Lake Wauburg

A popular summer retreat for UF students, faculty and staff, Lake Wauburg offers swimming, fishing, sailing and sports. Encompassing 90 acres of natural Florida just south of Paynes Prairie, the lakeside area is a favorite spot for relieving the stress of University life. The outdoor recreation park facilities of Lake Wauburg are a true find for anyone seeking a refuge for fun in the Florida sun.

Originally begun as Newnan’s Lake, I decided that sailboats were more iconic than say, bass fishing, and that Wauburg was more likely to resonate with students and alumni. I do have some bass drawings though, and will someday get back to Newnan’s Lake.
