Juniper Creek in Florida

Trip Overview

Juniper Creek begins at Juniper Springs inside Ocala State Park. This river is almost unbelievably beautiful. Clear at the start - wonderful all the way through. About 5 hours.

Not for beginners - quite technical in places. It's flatwater - but hard to navigate even for an experienced tandem. If you've got skills, go for it.




Small fee
