Lake Reed has an irregular circular shape and is on the south side of Winter Haven, Florida. It has a surface area of 16.91 acres (68,432 m2) and is bordered on the west side and during times of high water is connected to small oval-shaped body of water on its west side. The lake is very swampy along its entire shore. It is bordered to the north and northeast by Eloise Loop Road, on the west by pastures and on the southeast and south by the gated Terranova residential community.

There are no public swimming areas and there are no boat ramps, public or private. In fact, there is no public access to this lake. It is fenced along Eloise Loop Road. The Hook and Bullet website, however, says Lake Reed contains largemouth bass, bluegill and crappie.
