What a lovely way to spend an afternoon. We got the double kayak and went off for a splendid adventure which began at the swimming hole then off to the rock springs. The down to Wekiwa springs park. Watch out for alligators saw a giant snapping turtle. Loved this run.

My husband and I went to Kings Landing this past Saturday, Memorial weekend. We had a great time. We launched our own kayaks but arranged to be picked up at the end. Best decision, ever. The Owner was extremely friendly and the guy at the dock picking up rental canoes was super helpful. We didn't pick a set time to be picked up. They even tell you if you miss one pick up time you'll have to wait for the next. So we knew going in it would be on us if we missed the pick up time we wanted. The river wasn't crowded at all, and we had plenty of opportunities to stop and relax or eat lunch, mostly after the half way point. Before that there's not as many places to stop. We live fairly close to Apopka so we'll definitely be going again. Traffic getting into the park is pretty terrible because the Kelly Park entrance is a little before the Kings Landing entrance, which is generally where everyone is going so just be patient and wait it out.

Kings Landing canoe rental service was awesome. For a reasonable price they provide everything that you need to include vests, canoe, paddles, and fishing nets. They even pick you up with a bus afterwards. I took my 3 year old and we had a blast. It's a very long route about 8.5 miles but there are plenty of shady spots to cool off in the knee deep water.

The only con is that there isn't very much room for parking. So arrive early.

King's Landing was one of the best discoveries we've made in quite a while. The place is beautiful! If unspoiled Florida is what you're looking for, this is where you'll find it. Both canoe and kayak rentals are available as well as a great picnic spot and launch area if you bring your own canoe. If you're looking to fish a while, bait and tackle, even fishing pole rentals are available. Daniel and Steve are wonderful and accommodating. The kids loved the beach/swimming area. I would recommend this place for anyone wanting to experience the natural beauty of a spring fed Florida river.
