Oklawaha Trip

August 26 2011

With the August slow down, Audrey and I had a chance to take a little trip up to Ocala to visit her mother and do a little kayaking in the spring feed Oklawaha river. The folks at the Oklawaha Outpost were very nice and helpful. We rented a couple of Old Towns. A tandem for Audrey and her mother and a single for me.

We put in at Gore's Landing and paddled with the 2 know flow down stream to the Outpost's property along the river. This we found to be an easy 4 hour paddle and was pleased with the scenery and wildlife we encountered. The river was not as clear as we had hoped but it is August and we have had a very rainy season this summer along the western half of Florida.

If you haven't paddled the Oklawaha, I recommend you give it a go. The best time would be in the spring right before the summer rain begin. If you would like more info about this trip call us at 941 255-3686 or email us at mike@itstimekayakandcanoe.com
