We visit the park because of the opportunity of Canoeing in the river. It was amazing! We got there right when the Visitor Complex open to rent the canoes, so the river was completely empty. The staff was great at explaining us the route and the map. The canoes and kayaks are in good shape the also provide all the life jacket (including for kids). We took our lunch with us, and stop at the Trapper Nelson area (where he used to live) for lunch. We saw manatees, birds and their nest, gators, and fish. On our way back, the river was full of canoes, kayaks, and small boats My recommendation is to go as early as possible, because the canoes and kayaks are limited, and because the less people the calmer the river is.
