Amazing outdoor experience

Perfect place to enjoy a walk while watching the deer and squirrels play. There are bridges and loop paths to enjoy God's creation: pure nature

I've done this trip tiwice before. The river runs thru some beautiful undeveloped areas. It's somewhat challenging but not overly so. If you have a serious phobia about the possibility of seeing alligators, then don't go. I saw only two small ones and lots of turtles sunning themselves on branches.

We arrived around 1Pm and rented bikes - quite a deal at $15 for the afternoon. The crushed-stone trails are generally well-marked and mostly flat with kiosks containing the map placed at strategic locations. To be on the safe side, the rental rep took us over to the nearby kiosk and recommended we take a photo of the trail map... More

I live in the next town to the north and had never heard of this beautiful free park. I launched my kayaks there and headed towards the dams. You instantly get sent back in time to the real feel of old Florida. Dense woods of old oaks, cypress trees, and sable palms bending over the water. The river gets narrow,... More

Beautiful, well maintained old Florida park. Canoe and kayak rentals, peaceful walks. Good parking and a nice little drive-around road so that you can see the fauna and flora without walking if you wish.

We took our bikes to this park. Loved that it was free with free parking. The trails are graded trails and very easy to ride. It was easy to bike side by side. Plenty of shaded trails. Loved seeing a Florida hammock and realizing this is what old Florida looked like. We did not kayak, but looks like something we... More

This park has it all. The trails are full of all types of plants and wildlife including deer. Great walking trails, exercise, and even events on weekends. Even has an old saw mill. The park and parking is free, Canoe rentals also available. Fun for the whole family.
