“Best put in for kayaking and canoeing”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

Easy put in and good parking for a day on the Wekiva River. This part of the river is Old Florida, with all your flora and animals visible in the clear cool waters.

“Katie's is beautiful, bring a kayak or canoe!”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

Katie's use to be private but Florida has taken it over and really made it nice. Access it from Highway 46 near the Seminole/Lake County line. There's ample parking, restrooms, picnicking areas and a nice beach from which to launch your kayak or canoe right into the pristine, crystal clear waters of the Wekiva with very little portage.

“Plenty of parking”
Reviewed December 18, 2010

Since the previous review was quite old. I will provide an update. There is plenty of parking with a $3 honor fee payment. There are no rentals available. There is a soda machine and small (one at a time) rest rooms. The location a bit down the river where they rented boats is now closed. A good plan is to leave you canoes kayaks at Wekiva Island and shuttle your cars to Katie's.

“No sign of Katie.”
Reviewed August 4, 2006

Now it's a state-run, "park," with a gate. Canoe launch, no motorboats, closes at dusk, and all free. Very quiet and peaceful so don't expect a lot. There is a map near the water's entrance so you know where you are on the Wekiva. Not many spots to park but on a Saturday, in August, only 3 other cars out there. VERY shallow all around there so don't try to launch a real boat out there. Further down the same road is Wekiva River Haven for deeper water and a snack bar.
