Stage 5 of the Suwannee Quest – the YakPak’s attempt to lead the Sandhill Chapter of the Florida Trail Association in paddling all 206 miles of the Suwannee River in Florida – one piece at a time. Again with overnight camping.
A nice, relaxing kayak tour. A few old friends were along for the trip and by the end we had all made some new friends. We paddled from Spirit of the Suwannee Campground to Suwannee River State Park, staying overnight at Holton Creek River Camp. This section is characterized by white sandy banks, moderate limestone bluffs, cypress & pine trees, and a few nice little water falls and spring creeks. The water level by the White Springs gauge was 51.73 – medium low.
We had 5 people tenting, 3 of us stayed in a “ladies cabin” and one guy plus a lot of the tenters’ gear in another cabin which we promptly dubbed the “Man Cave”. We even had pizza and a watermelon delivered to the camp by the wife of one of the participants. The watermelon made a great treat as our Sunday lunch dessert.
