We loved this place and had never seen this side of Florida. The water temperature was lovely and crystal clear and very refreshing. We hired kayaks and went searching for alligators which at times did not seem to be the most responsible parenting but the kids (11 & 9) loved going down the river. When we got in the kayaks a bear did run through the waters behind us getting everyones attention!!! A great place to get back to nature and away from those pesky parks..
