Didn’t end well
Oct 2020
So my friend and I launched my tandem at the Alafia Canoe Outpost and was told that we wouldn’t run into any rapids. Well not the case and so I’m here to tell you that isn’t the case and that the current can be very strong. If your not experienced in rapids I’d suggest another river as the current swept us into a Fallan tree and our kayak flipped and things got scary. The sheriff office had to come in and rescue us and I ended up losing my kayak and no one has bothered to turn it in. So I wanted to post this to let people know. My kayak was a bright blue Lifetime tandem kayak with a homemade trolling motor on the back that my husband built. I’d love to get my kayak back so if you found it and have it my number is (315)466-3580. Appreciate it

Very nice facilities. One major loop, hard surface, about 1.8 miles. Other more natural trail and camping sites available. Bathrooms, parking and playgrounds.

picnic and hiking
Feb 2020
very nice county park for picnics, hiking, canoe launch, wildlife watching on the Alafia River just a few mile from Fishhawk. There are paved and boardwalk hiking trails along the river and more primitive trails that lead to primitive walk in camp sites. And there are group camping areas for use by youth groups all at very reasonable rates. Also a great playground area to keep the kids busy.

Hiking, Camping, and lots of fun.

We had a great time camping - the walk to the primitive campsites was beautiful and not too difficult for the kids to carry their own things. The sites are well-maintained and the ranger was very helpful. We had a great time.

Beautiful, family friendly park.
Nov 2019
We were there for a birthday party. The picnic area was right next to the playground and near the very clean bathrooms. Those who wanted to could pick up the trail in the area and go for a scenic, paved hike through beautiful woods and along a river.

Pretty walk
Feb 2019 • Couples
My husband like to go here to walk. It seems every time we go we see something different. There are a few variations of the walk we like to do. It’s only $2 to get into this park. We also like to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy afterwards at the picnic tables

My husband and I came here with some take out food, and we really liked the park. Looks like they have lots of trails to walk. Lots of picnic tables, and they have grills.

Nice trails to walk or bike
Feb 2019 • Couples
My husband and I are always looking for new bike trails to ride and wandered out to Alderman’s Ford a couple of weeks ago. We found the park busy but not so busy that it was hard to ride the paved trail. We did go on a trail but lost the trail and had to backtrack out. But it was still fun. Depending on the season it may be too wet to ride or the water may be too high to ride through. $2 entrance fee. Nice picnic areas as well.

Great family park
Feb 2019 • Family
trails plus a nice boardwalk for those who don’t want to be so-o close to the wildlife....bike paths for leisure riding( try Alafia state park down the road if you want awesome, challenging bike trails). Large playground for children-baby swings slides,etc. plenty of picnic tables. All around good experience-we’ll be back!
