|Location||Leon County, Florida|
|Basin countries||United States|
Lake Hall forms the south, western, and part of the northern boundaries of Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park and is home to Capitol City Rowing. The other shores of Lake Hall are lined with private property and private homes.
Lake Hall is classified as an oligotrophic lake and has the distinction of having the best water quality of all lakes in Leon County according to TAPP, a local water quality and conservation group. Due to its clarity, the lake is suspected to be spring fed although no connection has been found to the Floridan Aquifer via a sinkhole.
The lake supports beds of Vallisneria americana and Sagittaria stagnorum but contains no hydrilla. Some hydrilla was discovered in the southern lobe of the lake and grass carp were introduced to control the plant.
Lake Hall is also home to the swim portion of the Redhills Sprint Triathlon.
