Kayak Thomas Creek

We'll paddle for a total of about six miles on 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.

No rentals available nearby. Bring your own kayak or canoe. PFD and whistle are required. Bring bug repellent and water.

      Rita - I'm loaning my inflatable to Dee. It's a two-seater, so if it's OK with Dee, you can go along with her.
