Found in Lake County, Florida, the Dead River serves as the division between the cities of Tavares and Leesburg. It recieved its name due to lack of current, studies have shown that a simple john boat can reamain in nearly the same position if left on the river overnight with less than five feet of drift. The Dead River connects Lake Eustis and Lake Harris. The only roadway to cross the river is U.S. Highway 441 near Dead River's southern mouth toward Lake Eustis. There are currently two businesses directly on the river: Nate's River Deck Restaurant and a small fueling station and general store (The Dead River Marina). For a historical look at Lake County waters, this was written in the 1930's, "Florida; The March of Progress" published by the Florida Department of Agraculture, Bureau of Immigration; "amid the slopes and waters of beutiful Lake County, are Leesburg, Eustis, Tavares, and Mount Dora, all possessed of excellent tourist accomodations and such natural and man-made beauty, combined with all sorts of sport advantages, that the sport-loving visitor is thrilled. Bass fishing surpasses anything you have ever known in that line. Citrus fruits and other products abound. Golf courses are found in every community. As an all-year resort section, this is hard to equal."
