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.

This park is so awesome! I felt like I was miles from the city. My husband and I enjoyed a picnic, did a lot of walking and enjoyed a LOT of wildlife. This is just an awesome one tank trip. We spent the whole day and will be going back to canoe. Loved it

This river is average. It is brown and polluted. For a canoe or kayak trip, it works. I would search out other rivers if possible.
