The river itself it great. Bald Cypress line the banks and the 2 dams add some "white water " feel ( Florida style). When the current flows it is fun. On weekends the "portage around the dams is crowded with party people enjoying the wildlife, making moving kayak across dam tough. But they were all friendly. Watch launching off the portage dock, if your bow gets under the water, then your in for a roll into the water. Refreshing on a hot day bringing smiles to all (I was the entertainment). About a 3 .5 hr round trip to the Interstate bridge, about 4 miles RT.
If you like to get around Florida to kayak, or your just visiting the area.....It is worth the trip and time.....just don't let the rental people give you the wrong start because they appear to be grumpy at Canoe Outfitters ( it was not just a bad day, this was confirmed by a paddler who has been going there for years). Beautiful day, beautiful river, not much wildlife but it was a holiday so lots of people on the river enjoying Old Florida
