Kayak rentals very reasonable. Good food on site and covered area to eat. Try the mahi (fish) sandwich. Nice alternative to theme parks. Mid-week not crowded. Good mix of quiet outdoors and other people to interact with.

I do wish they had a better boat launch as people who live in the area DO use motors on their boats.

We stopped to see Katie's Landing and its a really nice little park with public restrooms, looks like you can drop a small boat, canoe or kayak for $3. There were also a couple of picnicking sites. Its kept up very well.

Nice peaceful place to launch. Back to nature. Highly recommend. Paddle up river then relax on way back down. Saw 1 otter. No gators but sure plenty were there.

I've been kayaking here twice - once with my daughter Whitney and once with my husband Frank. Both times were wonderful - easy to rent and a beautiful river to explore. We will be back!!

I remember when Katie's was renting canoes, once upon a time. The park remained and after many years, it was given a beautiful facelift. Parking was added and still kept the canoe launch. Great for fishing from shore, birding, watching gators and otters and all...More
