What a great canoe trip up the Ocklawaha. Caught Bass, Chain Pickerel and Blue gill. Seen a variety of birds, alligators, turtles and my favorite two Otters. My girlfriend who had never canoed was amazed of the beauty and tranquility. The resort sits next to a main road and has some road noise. This was not an issue for us... More

I take all my first time kayaking friends here and they have always had a great time and experience..the Outpost takes you upstream, and you float downstream and the paddling is minimal, and the nature and quietness is awesome..very relaxing…I highly recommend packing a lunch and plan on approx 4 hours to float down, and don't be afraid to bring...

This was a beautiful place. Friendly staff, beautiful cabins and very quiet. The cabins are on a beautiful property and there is a lot to do both on and off this resort. No cell phone or wifi was refreshing and it was nice to cook on your own grill at your cabin and sit around your own fire at night.... More

We kayaked 10 miles down the river, putting in at Gore's Landing campground. The river was clear with lots of wildlife-fish and otters. Looked like good fishing. Beautiful scenery along the way. The canoe outpost shuttled the car for a fee. We checked out their cabins, and they looked very nice, but we were not staying overnite on this trip.

Just came back from a 3 day canoe/camping trip. Rented canoes from Ocklawaha Canoe Outpost for 3 days (2 nights) and camped along the river. Crystal clear river water, good fishing (best river fishing I've experienced on any of the Florida rivers), and saw lots of wildlife. The owner is an older hippie guy, very friendly and helpful. He runs... More

Stayed one night on the way to kayak Ocklawaha River. The cabin while small of bathroom was comfortable and had everything one would need. Nice screened proch and barbacue pit. The administration was very helpful. They provided critical transportation to the put-in and brought the vehicle back for take-out. Everything went smoothly. A little noisy with proximity to river and... More

After reviewing some of the negative comments, we were hesitant to book our stay, but we are very glad that we did! The website described the resort perfectly. We are a family of 5 and although it was a bit tight, we all slept very comfortably. The cabin was very clean and well stocked (clean towels, dishes, detergent, pots, etc...)... More

Host was very nice and super accommodating bout check in times and had it all ready for us. Even called us to verify we were still coming when we were running late.

If you are looking for a change of pace and to get away from "typical" trips-this is your place. The website is spot on with their images of what to expect related to: accomodations, river and facilities in general. May was my 2nd visit-thunderstorms prevailed, but we still managed to get in a cool 4 hour paddle. Went nearby for... More
