Join Rising Tides for our annual paddle + camping trip on the Ocklawaha River - the largest tributary of the St. Johns! We will begin our journey at Ray Wayside Park (9564 NE 28th Ln, Silver Springs, FL 34488) on Saturday, June 4. Meet there at 9:30 a.m. for a prompt takeoff at 10 a.m. to paddle to Gores Landing (13800 NE 98th St, Fort McCoy, FL 32134) where we will set up camp for the night. The paddle is approximately 13 miles, but all downstream and is an easy paddle even for beginners.
Sunday morning, you can head home or join us for a paddle from Gores Landing to the Ocklawaha Canoe Outpost & Resort (15260 NE 152nd Pl, Fort McCoy, FL 32134), about a 9-mile journey. We'll have a car at Gores Landing to shuttle you and your boat back to Ray's on Sunday.
Campsites at Gores Landing are first-come, first-served. Gores Landing is a cozy campground right on the banks of the Ocklawaha River. If any campers would like to set up camp before the paddle, they may arrive at Gores Landing Friday night.
Arrive at 9:30 a.m.; Paddle will begin promptly at 10 a.m.
Participants must bring all of your own gear.
