This place is downright magical!! We took out of Cross Creek into Lake Lochloosa.  It was so peaceful and so much life is here on this lake.  Spotted many gators, osprey, turtles, herons, cranes, Gregg even spotted a bald eagle overhead and that was just magnificent!! 

 

One can literally feel the energy here!  I took many mini videos of this place as well as photos.  We were on Lake Lochloosa for almost 4 hours and I didn't want to leave.  I kept on hearing Lochloosa playing in my mind over and over .... I would just close my eyes, smile, and let the energy of this place just flow through me .... I know it sounds corny, but I just feel that I did have a spiritual moment(s) there.

I think we called ahead, but he had a few boats and some cute fishing cabins.  Says Cross Creek is about 6 feet down.  We passed the Yearling Restaurant on our way out, so yes it is close by.

Love that photo above of the Twin Lakes Fish Camp. Get your propane tank filled, minnows and worms, rent a boat, grab a slice of pizza, and have your documents notarized.
