LOWER WEKIVA RIVER
The beautiful Wekiva River is one of only two National Wild and Scenic rivers in the entire state. Travel downstream with us and discover what makes this clear winding river-way such a national treasure.
Lake Norris is a spectacular darkwater lake and the Lake Norris Conservation Area was purchased to protect the extensive hardwood swamp that lies on the western shore of the lake and the shoreline of Black Water Creek, a major tributary of the Wekiva River.
LITTLE WEKIVA RIVER
One of the tributaries of the Wekiva river, the little Wekiva offers paddlers clear shallow water, beautiful scenery, hidden swamps and sloughs, and up close wildlife.
The creek flows through an ancient, maybe prehistoric, cypress swamp. Born on the waters of Lake Norris, the creek stretches for over twenty miles, eventually emerging onto the Wekiva River just upstream from the St. Johns River.
