Lake Olivia is an 89-acre (360,000 m2) freshwater lake located within the Avon Park Lakes
Subdivision in northwest Highlands County, Florida. It is to the northwest of the incorporated city of Avon Park. Maximum depth is about 45 feet (14 m), with a fairly steep contour to the depth. The lake’s shape is round.
Fishing, walking and boating are popular activities. Fishing is apparently more productive at Lake Olivia than some other lakes. Almost daily people fish the south shore and many days people fish from boats in the lake.
The main boat ramp, on the south side of Lake Olivia, was partially replaced in March 2012. At the same time a new and larger fishing dock was built and is handicap assessable. A paved sidewalk surrounds the lake and covers approximately 1½ miles.
