    BRING CAMERAS AS THE Roseate spoonbills are here!


    Lets do a morning Myakka paddle...we will launch at the bridge (park just south of it).

    Look for ME and my Green Rav 4.

    Its an easy launch there and we can paddle either direction depending on the water levels.

    Meet at 8:00 AM at SOUTH entrance ...We will plan to do a shorter paddle and be done by 12 noon or 1 PM.

    That leaves a lot of time for folks to still go home and eat turkey.

    There is a Cost per car to enter the park unless you have a yearly pass.

    WARNING!! there will be GATORS!

    No rentals available for this paddle and intermediate and up paddlers only please.

    Was just at the park last weekend...water reportedly is getting low on the south side and requires a short portage about 1 1/2 miles south of Clark road. I stayed on the north side.

      Was at the park a few days ago and got pics of a manatee trying to swim over the weir into North Lake.
