Krul Lake Repairs Expected To Be Finished In About Two Weeks

April 20, 2021

Repair work on Krul Lake in the Blackwater State Forest is expected to be completed soon.

The 6.5 acre lake was drained for maintenance.

“We’re looking at two weeks to finish the repairs at Krul according to contractors,” Joe Zwierzchowski, spokesman for the Florida Forest Service, told

Krul Lake is filled from springs located on the north end of the lake and is popular summer swimming area. The Krul Recreation area, located about a half mile east of Munson, also features restrooms and showers,  hiking trails, a gristmill, a suspension bridge over Sweetwater Creek, and a picnic area.

    Great place to spend a hot summer day..Pack a picnic lunch and just enjoy the great outdoors. Lots of shade and tables and spring water to swim in to cool off…
