Key Largo, FL
Pathfinder | 130 pts
BEST river in S. Fla. No doubt. Wilder than the Lox, makes the Peace look like a roadside ditch. Very natural creek, if you don't like gators, think twice (never had a problem, see 100's) Done this about a dozen times now. Cheap, easy, even better if you camp, though you see some of the best parts on the day trip. Currently hoping to explore the lower section more, tricky cause they say it doesn't go through anymore from US27 to the lake. Swift stream by FL standards when the water's up, I like it best when it's barely do-able, 2.4 on the US27 gage. There's more to see then, better camping, but there are short easy portages then. and no boats. They make you sign a 'no whining' form at times of low water! I use a canoe and sea kayaks here, not too sure I'd use a sit-on-top account of the wildness and the gators. Great fishing.
Like Earthlady said, this is Real Florida, Folks!
