Spring fed river on the Gulf Coast, south of Homosassa. Several tributaries beg to be explored to the source where a refreshing dip prepares you for the next stop. Manatees, alligators, dolphins, deer, otters and thousands of birds. A yakdave fav.

On Saturday morning, 7/3/2010, we arrived at the boat ramp area to find a nearly empty parking lot. Considering a holiday weekend and expecting wall to wall boats/folks, it was a nice surprise.

Memorial Day weekend. I should have known better than go to a popular spot like Chassahowitzka but here I am anyway. Or at least I should have gotten an earlier start. 10am and the parking lot is full of cars and boat trailers.

(Chassawitzka NWR) A beautiful, mostly undeveloped river that leads to the Gulf of Mexico. Several springs to visit and slow meandering creeks to paddle.

(Maggies Crack and Baird Creek) On the third day of our spring break trip we paddled the most beautiful wilderness river. From the head spring we paddled down river to Baird Creek and turned upstream to Maggies Crack. Our paddle was short because of a family outing at my sisters.
