I used to take my boat here all the time. Excellent place to see wild gators, fish hawks, turtles, & other wildlife. I go wakeboarding here all the time. The water is as smooth as ice. The stretch thru old Temple Terrace is beautiful. It shows just how nature made it.
I only went to the upper river behind the dam. It was cool to cruise up to the dam & see how much higher the upper river was from the lower river.
