White Winter- White Water Rafting in Florida

Sunday, November 16, 2008

It's November and a chill is in the air. Time to break out the boots! Wrong boots--we mean the hiking boots and kayak. This time we bring you to the north of Florida thanks to the tip of a Fabulous Florida reader.

The Big Shoal State Park is located in White Springs, FL in the north central section of the State.

Big Shoals State Park is home to the only Class III white water rapids in Florida on the famed Suwannee River. Twenty-eight miles of wooded trails offer hiking, biking and horseback riding opportunities if you're not looking to take a plunge in the rapids. And if you're ready to brave the
the white monster...

This park features the largest whitewater rapids in Florida. Limestone bluffs, towering 80 feet above the banks of the Suwannee River, afford outstanding vistas not found anywhere else in Florida. When the water level on the Suwannee River is between 59 and 61 feet above mean sea level, the Big Shoals rapids earn a Class III Whitewater classification, attracting thrill-seeking canoe and kayak enthusiasts.

White water rapids depend on seasons and recent rainfalls. So it's best to call the park before visiting to find out the latest conditions (386) 397-4331.
