Kayak rentals were very reasonable. Don't bring you camera with you, this may seem obvious, but I had never been before, and our kayak flipped. The scenery is so rustic, and you will wish you brought your camera!!

My husband and I rented kayaks and had a fantastic time exploring the river for a couple of hours. Kayak rentals are really easy and affordable ($32 for a double) and Canoe Outfitters staff were very pleasant and provided maps.The river was a little more challenging than we expected with many twists and turns which kept us on our toes. We saw beautiful birds, many fish and turtles and several alligators - one of which was absolutely enormous (8+ feet) and really took us by surprise as we rounded a curve! Definitely worth a visit, but keep a look out for alligators!

We visited this park based on the reviews from this site. We were not disappointed! We rented bikes for a reasonable $10 each and rode for hours. Mike, the guy at the counter, was very helpful and showed us some of the best trails. We saw lots of birds, a turtle, and the natural setting was stunning.
