Savannas is a lovely, natural savanna, but it is definitely not a place for wild excitement or great variation of environment. You ride down a long, winding road through palmetto groves, pine trees and marsh, to an open area surrounded about halfway by a lake....More

Water has been too low for kayaks. Call their office for updates. Don't think they have bike rentals. Try Ironhorse Bike Rentals on Hutchinson Island
