We often camp at campgrounds before/after the paddle, or some people just come for the day – check with your trip coordinator. Camping days may or may not be included in dates.

New Meetup members have a 60 DAY FREE TRIAL period to “get to know our group”. You will need to sign a Waiver/Release of Liability form to paddle with us during your FREE TRIAL period (ask your Trip Coordinator for the form). Prior to the end of the 60 days, you need to join the Florida Sport Paddling Club or you will be dropped from our Meetup.

Oklawaha River

Johnson Field Boat Ramp

Oklawaha ramps are finally open. Yay! We will paddle upstream from Hwy 19 for about 1-1/2 - 2 hrs and return to ramp. We can take a break at Davenport Landing, the old indian mound. No facilities there, or at ramp, but 'the woods are big.'

Alexander Springs Creek

County Road 445

Be ready to paddle at 9:30. No shuttle. Wide spring-fed run in Ocala Nat'l Forest, possible dense vegetation in places. We'll paddle upstream, then downstream past our launch, and then return to our launch site when we wish; probably 3 to 4 hrs of leisurely paddling. We'll meet at access on SW side of CR 445 roadbridge over the run. Sandy launch, may need to carry boat a bit depending on condition of the access (bring wheels, in case). IF weather forecast bad .... will post it here if trip canceled. RSVP closes at 7 pm on Tues. No more than 8 people. No shade. No restrooms available.
