Northwest of the city of Tampa sit the small town of Keystone and Odessa. Conveniently located just minutes away from the nearest shopping mall, yet distanced from frenzy of the city, the Keystone and Odessa area is one of the Tampa area’s most treasured locations. The largest and most well known lake in the area is Lake Keystone. The lake spans an area of 424 acres with an average depth of 10 feet. Characterized by clear, clean water with a tinge of reddish-brown, this has been a popular lake both for boating and fishing. Homeowners are attracted to these lakes both for their recreational frills as well as for their pristine beauty. Surrounded by native wildlife and cypress trees, these lakefronts have preserved the quality of Old Florida that so many locals cherish.
