Paddle and river camp on one of Florida’s most scenic rivers. We will be paddling the middle section of the Suwannee, which is well-known for its numerous springs and small shoals. We’ll start our journey from the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and take out at Hal W. Adams boat launch, which is 1.5 miles upstream from Peacock Springs River Camp. We will paddle three days and camp two nights. You will need to bring a tent as we will be primitive camping the first night. This trip requires each person to carry their own tent, sleeping bag, and enough food and water for the duration of the trip. Potable water is NOT accessible at the river camp, and we will be primitive camping on the outskirts of Suwannee State Park (not in the park).
Day One – 21 miles
Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park to Suwannee River State Park
Day Two – 15 miles
Suwannee River State Park to Dowling Park River Camp
Day Three – 17 miles

We will meet at the put-in at 8:30am on 29 November, and drop our kayaks and gear off. We will be doing our own shuttle.
