Many pockets and sinkholes dot the landscape of central Florida.Cowpen Lake is one of the scores of small lakes and marshes of Florida's natural treasures. The lake is in the Cross Florida Region, represented largely by the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway which runs across Florida from the eastern border to the west. The 110-mile greenway, once the site of a canal, gives visitors access to a mixture of historical and environmental attractions.

Cowpen Lake, so named for the cow pens that once existed on the site and that used to serve traveling cattle ranchers, is an ideal setting for a quiet home. You will enjoy the refreshing quiet of the natural environment away from the busyness of city life. In such an easy and laid back part of Florida, where the towns are still marked by their hospitality, there are also many dynamic experiences awaiting you. Real estate property on Cowpen Lake includes waterfront lots where the bird sounds and the reflections on the water are what you wake up to and the comfort of a life in serenity is what you have always wanted.
