Very nice place. Friendly workers and very kind. Nice area to hang out in evening for adult time. Saturday was a drunkin kid fest. Not a big fan of that.

So glad we found this place. Amazing setting with a really cool bar and a great area to canoe/kayak/paddle board. Lots of people relaxing by the water and enjoying the day. Private cabanas can be reserved for parties. Will definitely be back.

I used to come here when it was Wekiva Marina. The restaurant is long gone, but it has an outside bar and plenty of places to sun yourself; as well as canoe/kayak rentals. It's just so peaceful here. Alligators and all.
