The Wekiva, and its tributaries, Rock Springs Run and Blackwater Creek, offer the best paddling in Florida. I've seen alligators, deer, bear, manatees, otters and bald eagles. Kayak in 3 State Parks and a State Forest. Cool off in a spring post paddle.

(Upper Wekiva River) My first paddle in a section of the Wekiva River. Out of Wilson's Landings, headed South and made it all the way to Buffalo Tram Primitive Camp Site.

(Lower Wekiva River) You cannot go wrong paddling this section of the Wekiva River. This time it was really nice, as usual. Lots of wildlife and a crystal clear river. What else can you ask for?
