Kayak Thomas Creek

We'll paddle the beautiful Thomas Creek on the northside. The creek winds northeast into the Four Creeks State Forest.

The Thomas Creek Preserve boatramp is located at 17198 Ethel Road, Jacksonville, FL 32218. Take I-295 West beltway to Exit 32 (Lem Turner Rd/SR 115). Go north on SR 115 about 5 miles. Turn right at the light on Lannie Rd and go about 3 miles. Turn left on Ethel Rd (goes between the prison and the cemetery). Follow Ethel Rd to the boat ramp.

Bring your own kayak or canoe. PFD and whistle are required. Bring bug repellent and water.

    Are there any kayak rentals in the area? I don't have one.

    June 18, 2013

    • Bill A.

      I suggest you hold off on buying one. There aren't many places in Jax where you can use an inflatable. But Thomas Creek is one. I have an inflatable you can borrow.

    • Glorian M.

      Sweet! Thanks Bill, I'm excited!
