Upper Lake Louise is situated within the Crescent City Ridge of the Central Lakes District (see Fig. 7, Regional Geology). The area consists of sand hills with peak elevations between 24 to 30 m (80 to 100 ft) NGVD that are bordered to the west by the floodplain of the St. Johns River and Crescent Lake basin on the east. The elevation of Upper Lake Louise was approximately 12 m (40 ft) NGVD at the time of profiling. The lake covers an area of 1.7 km2, with about 5 km (3 mi) of shoreline.
