Nestled along the banks of the majestic St. Johns River in Northeast Florida, Clay County lies southwest of Jacksonville and west of historic St. Augustine. Clay County is comprised of four incorporated municipalities – Orange Park, Green Cove Springs, Penney Farms and Keystone Heights and one unincorporated municipality, Middleburg. The St. Johns River runs the entire length of the County’s eastern border – a perfect location to sail, jet-ski, or spend the day boating. The county’s larger, fresh-water lakes (Doctor’s Lake, Lake Asbury and Kingsley Lake) are among those that residents and visitors alike can enjoy for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, water-skiing and fishing. Several public boat ramps are located in the Green Cove Springs area of the county including Governor’s Creek Boat Ramp on the north bank of Governor’s Creek; Knight’s Boat Ramp and Marina Facility on Black Creek north of Green Cove Springs; Old Ferry Boat Ramp on Black Creek; Shands Boat Ramp located southeast of Green Cove Springs and the Middleburg Boat Ramp located of SR 21 at the end of Main Street in Middleburg. Full marina services are available at the Green Cove Springs Marina and the Reynolds Park Yacht Center in Green Cove Springs. Scuba Extreme, Middleburg, is a new, full service scuba diving and adventure sports facility offering the adventurous regional as well as international scuba diving opportunities.
