All About Glisson Pond

Lake Locations: USA - South - Florida - Panhandle East -

For a quiet respite from the busy world, a visit to Glisson Pond near Madison, Florida is recommended. With a location in the deep south where small town hospitality is common, this lake makes a great get away for relaxing days.

At the end of a tree lined road with lush foliage, Glisson Pond waits to bring you some quiet time on the water. After your boat is launched, be prepared to relax while floating on the tranquil lake and lazily watch your fishing line as crappie and brown trout tease the bait. The soothing music you hear is the birds and other wildlife chirping and chattering as they scamper on the wooded shoreline to drink from the lake. If you find yourself reluctant to leave this serene setting at the end of the day or at the end of your vacation, make a call to a local realtor to purchase your piece of paradise as lake front real estate is available.

A few miles from Glisson Pond is the town of Madison, which is the county seat of Madison County. Here you will step back in time as historic mansions still dominate the architecture and centuries old cemeteries lie just outside town. Stroll down the streets to enjoy quaint gift shops, antique stores, and restaurants with down home cooking and you will soon understand why it was named as one of the “Best Little Towns in Florida” by Visit Florida.

Outdoor enthusiasts will have a hard time choosing what activity to do first. Will it be to bike “The Loop,” a 135 mile trail through Madison County over farmland and challenging hills. Maybe a hike through the lush forests to enjoy the natural beauty and watch the many species of birds that migrate here seasonally will be the choice of the day. Should water activity be your number one choice, the county is bordered on the east by the Withlacoochee and Suwannee Rivers and on the west by the Aucilla River with Glisson Pond in between and each offers a unique choice from kayaking, canoeing, wakeboarding, water skiing, and boating. Madison Blue Springs State Park is the local destination for cave diving. Madison County is full of exciting options so visitors should plan on staying for a several days to enjoy all of the area has to offer.

Madison County and Glisson Pond are in the Florida Panhandle East Tourism Region. Florida’s capital, Tallahassee, is located nearby with its picturesque oak trees covered in hanging moss, blooming magnolias, and 19th century homes. The area is home to the Apalachicola National Forest, the largest forest in Florida, and includes 2,735 acres of water plus a wilderness expanse that resemble what Florida looked like before civilization arrived. Also, visitors will delight in dazzling white beaches, fishing villages, biking, hiking, golf, historic districts, guided tours for kayaking and canoeing, charter fishing tours, dolphin cruises, and many trails for hiking and biking. No matter how you spend your days, your nights can be spent in a wide range of vacation rentals from time share rentals, ocean front motels and condos, historic bed and breakfast inns, vacation homes, and campgrounds.

Glisson Pond, Madison County, and Florida Panhandle East Region are all loaded with adventure, excitement, history, and all around enjoyment. So, pack your bags, make your plans, and come on down!
