River Paddling and Camping

Saturday, March 25, 2023 8 a.m. to Sunday, March 26 at 5 p.m.

Spend the day kayaking over 10 miles through the twists and turns of the St. Johns River and surrounding creeks, followed by camping overnight on Hontoon Island (which is only accessible by boat!). We will start at Hontoon Island State Park and stop half way at Blue Spring State Park for lunch. There will be an opportunity to potentially eat lunch with manatees by the springs. This trip is long, but follows the creeks and river downstream, providing beautiful views and experiences.
