Panasoffkee is an Indian name. It stands for “Valley of Water”. The Lake is known to be 4460 acres and is 9 miles long and 2 miles wide at its widest point. It is said that the Seminole Indians came here in the 1800’s. In Little Jones Creek there still some Indian remnants.
The Valley of Water (Lake Panasoffkee) runs to an outlet into the Withlacoochee River and if there were no dams, you could go from here to the Gulf of Mexico which is around Yankee Town. There is no end to where you can go from the Gulf of Mexico.
