Kingsley Lake is an almost circular lake of about 2,000 acres (810 ha) in North Central Florida, about six miles (9.7 km) east of Starke, Florida. According to some sources, it is the oldest and highest lake in Florida,[citation needed] located on the edge of the Trail Ridge formation. The lake is a very stable lake with a sandy bottom. Its deepest part is about 90 feet (27.4 m). Kingsley lake is so nearly circular that pilots call it the Silver Dollar lake. There are several hundred docks on the north and west sides of the lake and Camp Blanding is on the East and South sides (Florida National Guard).

Geological Formation[edit]

The lake is thought to have formed as a sinkhole.[1][2]
