Union County

Room to Breath and Explore

Union County is home to more than 15,000 and is the smallest county in Florida, offering serene landscape and picturesque lakefront views. The county seat of Lake Butler enjoys an undeveloped shoreline and freshwater beach — a rarity in Florida and one of the major draws of the community. Go canoeing or kayaking on the two-and-a-half square mile lake. Or if you’re in the mood to go for a hike, the Palatka – Lake Butler State Trail offers a 47-mile walking path straight to Palatka in adjacent Putnam County.

Industries in Union County include agriculture, timber, logistics and distribution. If you’re looking for a rural community with a slower way of life that is focused on family values, Union County is a pleasing respite.
