Pellicer Creek in Florida

Pellicer Creek in Florida is a fantastic area for paddling around kayaking and canoeing. Indeed it is a designated Florida state canoe trail. The creek and tributaries offer a beautiful place to observe the varied bird and marine life of the area.

Canoes are available for rent by advanced reservation at Faver-Dykes State Park. It is bordered by lush hammocks (an elevated tract of land rising above the general level of a marshy region).

Camping is  available at both Faver-Dykes State Park and Pellicer Creek Campground.

Fabulous pictures of many of the birds you are likely to see in this area are shown on this interesting blog "Views From Our Kayak"  when the author did a kayak trip up/down Pellicer Creek.

Just for fun, a picture of Harley with the wind in his fur as he rides around Faver-Dykes State Park on Bark Ranger patrol.

  2. Harley can't wait for you to come back and play with him! He covets your new RV. I'll have to cook us up a mess of something while you are here. I'm getting into the swing of workamping.
