Withlacoochee River (South) Paddling Trail


Seaworld Orlando - details / Tabs



Once a refuge for Seminole Indians during the Second Seminole War, the river emerges from the Green Swamp in west central Florida and twists and bends through scenic sandhills before entering a swampy terrain of cypress, gum and maple. Overhanging limbs form a lacy canopy. Camping is available at Silver Lake Recreation Area. During dry seasons, paddlers may encounter logs and hyacinth jams. Although this is a long trail, numerous access points enable paddlers to choose shorter trips. Due to its scenic nature, the Withlacoochee River South is a state-designated Florida paddling trail.
