The Lake Park Area Chamber of Commerce
The Lake Park Area Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to our beautiful community. Lake Park is located 14 miles south of Valdosta, the county seat of Lowndes County. This is one of the most beautiful areas of Georgia, with its stately pines, cypress trees with Spanish moss, and crystal clear lakes. Lake Park is known as the "Georgia-Florida Gateway" because it lies just north of the Florida state line on Interstate 75.
Lake Park is a quiet yet progressive community. Here you can admire a beautiful sunset, stroll under magnificent live oaks, inhale the fragrance of magnolia blossoms, and be charmed by the warmth of the people you'll meet.
The Lake Park Area Chamber of Commerce strives to promote the economy of the south Lowndes County as well as provide information for residents, newcomers, and tourists alike.
