  • Very nice park for launching paddle craft with a dedicated ramp that was easy to get in and out of our kayaks. Tables and benches to lay items while we fussed with boats.  more »
  • Used it to put our canoe in to paddle up/down to the spring heads. Outside of the divebombing monkeys upriver a great trip. Plenty of parking. Small bathroom. Large dock with a nice little lower step section great for getting into canoes/kayaks. Of course also have a chute of sorts to launch kayaks from as well.
  • We launched our gheenoe here and went up the river to Silver Springs! It's was such a great experience.! There is a lot of wildlife and you'll probably see alligators. There are monkeys along the river but we didn't see any. Maybe next time!
