Crescent Lake Paddling Trail
Crescent Lake Paddling Trail is 17.7 miles of paddling. Access points include two public landings in Crescent City and several private landings. Crescent City has two parks on the shores of the lake- Fletcher Park and Margary Neil Nelson Sunrise Park. There are two other public landings on the east bank in Flagler County- Bull Creek Campground on Dead Lake and Shell Bluff landing just off Highway 100 south of San Mateo. The trail begins to the south at Haw Creek and ends at Dunns Creek State Park’s Pine Island. Crescent Lake is known for its American Bald Eagle population and largemouth bass, speckled perch and blue gill fishing. It is a prime American Alligator habitat. Manatees are known to make this lake home. Cypress swaps boarder most of the shoreline. Caution is to be taken while paddling the lake due to motorized traffic.
