Palestine usually refers to a geographical and historical region in the Middle East. Lake Palestine is approximately 18 miles long with 135 miles of shoreline. The lake has an average depth of around 16 feet with the maximum depth being 58 feet. It has a surface area of 25,500 acres.
There are seven seas and four rivers which surround Palestine, namely, the seas of Tiberias, Sodom, Chelath, Chiltha, Sibchi, Aspamia, and the Great Sea (the Mediterranean). The four rivers are the Jordan, the Yarmuch, Kirmion, and Pigah. It is farther stated there that the Jordan's sources are in the cave of Pameis, and that it runs through the lakes of Sibchi and Tiberias, through the Salt Sea into the mouth of Leviathan. At the end of Talmud Yerushalmi, on Kilayim, these seven seas or lakes are called the Great Sea, the Sea of Tiberias, Somcho, the Salt Sea, the Chultha, Shelyith, and Apamia.
Lake Palestine is a popular lake for fishing, boating, waterskiing and jet skiing. The lake has some nice, quiet coves that provide protection from the wind. The climate in the Lake Palestine area is temperate with an average rainfall of around 40 inches a year. This provides good conditions for lots of wildlife and birds. The American Bald Eagle can occasionally be spotted around the lake.
