Palm Gardens Restaurant and Marina in Central Florida is many things. A fish camp, a marina, a restaurant.. But more than that, it’s a place to gather together with friends and family in that beautifully timeless “Old Florida” atmosphere; surrounded by tall breezy palms and lots of shade on the Dead River connecting the beautiful Dora Canal, Lake Harris and Lake Eustis.
Besides a beautiful and shady place to relax, we offer RV lot rental, access to a public boat ramp, pontoon boat rentals, bait & tackle and much more. We sell non-ethanol marine fuel for your boat and of course carry all the other standard amenities for your cooler such as: cold beer, soft-drinks, bottled water and snacks. We have everything you need to enjoy the river; just bring your boat, rent one of ours or call ahead to schedule a Native Boat Tour to depart from our marina- Call 352-223-1806 to schedule.
Have lunch on the deck, enjoy our weekend raw bar or come out for dinner! No matter what meal you’re having, you can enjoy the view of our beautiful river from outside on the deck or from inside our climate controlled Riverview Room.
By car, we are located at the base of the bridge right on the river between Leesburg and Tavares off Highway 441 close to Mount Dora and just minutes away from other central florida attractions. When entering the park, follow to the 2 story building and park between the palm trees or in front of the river.
