5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Such a cool place - experience Florida the way it really is (minus the mouse house!). Nature pure and simple. Simply beautiful.

“Great place to paddle ~ close to Daytona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

If you want to paddle around without traveling way out of town, and your town is Spruce Creek, Port Orange or Daytona, this place is a must to check out. They do have kayak rentals, or for $5.00 launch fee, you can bring your own. They have a small outdoor cafe as well, just not sure of their hours!

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Kinda sad to see this place on here. Hope it stays quiet for us locals. We go here a few times a year. Love to take the kayaks for a hour or two paddle. So nice and quiet. Just hope this place doesn't get packed with people.

Nice quiet hidden away on the river. Some of the nicest people you will ever meet. family owned and operated. Take a boat tour or a ride in a Kayak. See the fish Gators and all kinds of wild life close up.

“A real hidden treasure of a place to have fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

I love Cracker Creek. They have a wonderful pontoon boat trip up the Spruce Creek where it truly looks like old Florida and where you can spot many birds, turtles and alligators sunning themselves. They also rent kayaks, canoes and what I call water bicycles. They have a beautiful picnic area and they host some events. I think it is a real hidden treasure
