A favorite destination for canoeists and kayakers, Blackwater River State Park offers opportunities for a variety of outdoor activities. The river is one of the purest sand-bottom rivers in the nation, making this park a popular place for swimming, fishing, camping, and paddling. Shaded campsites are just a short walk from the river and a picnic pavilion overlooks the river. Nature enthusiasts will enjoy strolling along trails through the more than 600 acres of undisturbed natural communities. In 1980 the park was certified as a Registered State Natural Feature for its exceptional illustration of Florida's natural history. One of the largest and oldest Atlantic white cedars stands among the many that line the river and, in 1982, it was recognized as a Florida Champion tree.Arrange to visit Blackwater River State Park and other attractions in Holt using our Holt holiday maker website .

Blackwater River State Park Reviews
This campground had a gray river for canoeing and kayaking. It was well laid out, level sites and clean bathrooms. more »
Oh my goodness! This place was sooo fun! The water is so cool, especially if you go during the summer! It's quite shallow in some places, and deep in others! We didn't have ANY problems going down it! Great place to party and drink and blast music til your heart contents!
Had a great time tuning down the river with my friends. If you bring your own tubes, you will need to bring two vehicles. Parking is $4 per vehicle. It is on the honor system, but they do check at least three times a day.
