The Blackwater River is the ONLY pristine sand river left in the United States. Blackwater Canoe offers a complete round trip service. They meet you at the end point of the river trip, park you, transport you upstream to the launch point. Toward the end of your trip you will encounter the Blackwater State Park. It offers large pavilions, restrooms and outdoor showers. You will end your trip back at your car. Simply beach your canoe, tube, or kayak . The time it takes you to complete your trip depends on how long your stops are on the beaches, and how fast you paddle. Once on the stream, the canoe or kayak is yours for the rest of the day. There is no guide, you can set your own pace, stop where and when you want. You are on your own to stop and sunbathe on the snow-white beaches, swim, play, picnic, fish, or simply relax and enjoy the tranquil forest.  The trip will end back at your car at the Blackwater River State Park. Be sure to bring plenty to eat and drink, (up to a 28 inch cooler will fit in your canoe). Rental coolers are available at the Outpost as well. Please bring plenty of garbage bags to put your litter in, or purchase all of your picnic supplies at THE OUTPOST.  They stock it all…food, drink, sunscreen, T-Shirts, ice, firewood, dry boxes and much more… along with CLEAN RESTROOMS. Great Experience guaranteed!

3. Florida Caverns State Park
3345 Caverns Rd, Marianna, FL 32446
(850) 482-9598
This is one of the few state parks with dry (air-filled) caves and is the only state park in Florida to offer cave tours to the public. The Florida Cavern has dazzling formations of limestone stalactites, stalagmites, soda straws, flowstones and draperies. A great place to go if you want to get away from the sandy beach and/or hot temperatures. Underground caverns! It’s a great place to see some of the Earth’s natural wonders. We don’t want to give away the finale, but it’s breathtaking. Many locals spend time here in the caverns or in the creek canoeing. It’s a great place for the family to spend the day. Great Experience guaranteed!
