Lying five miles to the East of the city of St. Cloud and approximately 30 minutes from Disney World, the seven key lakes, which form the Alligator Chain, are easily accessible. In fact, the local main thoroughfare, Highway 192/441, actually splits the chain in half as it runs from St. Cloud to Melbourne. However, few passersby even realize the lakes are there, in that only a very brief glimpse of the broad expanses of blue-green waters on either side of the highway can be seen from that vantage point. The waters are clean and pure, with no pollution from sewage or agriculture. And, the scenery and wildlife provide a quality outdoor experience.
