    I'd be interested but only if it was later in the year. I imagine the mosquitoes must be very heavy during the warmer months. I went there once a couple of years ago and was very disappointed because the river was too low to be navigable and some parts were completely dry. I found out that this is the only river in Florida that is not fed by some water source but is completely dependent on rainwater. The park is beautiful though, and we still had a very nice time there. Lunch at the "restaurant" wasn't too bad. If you can, check out the tree canopy bridge, which is quite interesting.

    I have yet to do the Myakka. Count me in pending the date you set. Thanks Phil.

    August 18, 2014

  • Janet

    If it fits in my schedule I would love to go.

    August 16, 2014

    • Phil N.

      I'll let you know. Right now I need to know how many people want to go. Then set a date.

      August 16, 2014

  • Phil N.

    No date yet but if you like to see gators I would like to hear from you.
