This hill is likely the highest point on the Florida peninsula. The USGS map shows a 310-foot contour with a land area of about 1.25 acres. There is a point 3.5 miles to the south called Camp Lake South that also has a 310-foot contour with an area of about 0.45 acres. Until a survery makes a definitive call, Sugarloaf will be treated by this site as the peninsula high point. It is also the Lake County high point, and the 12th most isolated peak in the contiguous 48 states--the nearest higher land is over 200 miles away.
