Lake Disston is a shallow lake averaging eight to ten feet in depth and covering 1844 acres in Flagler County Florida. This lake is drained by Little Haw Creek, which flows into Crescent Lake which then flows through Dunns Creek to the St. Johns River.
A popular fishing spot, it is also an Audubon Important Bird Area and is a state designated Outstanding Florida Water. Cypress trees ring the lake, especially on one side where there is a major bird rookery for wood storks, ibis, and egrets. The lake is an important osprey nesting habitat and is used by swallow-tailed kites when they are in Florida.
Lake Diston is the subject of the October 2015 Paul Rebmann Nature Photography blog post.
