Local Attractions & Links
We are located in the quaint town of Welaka known for its beauty and, of course, it's bass fishing. It is so much more than that! A golf cart friendly community , access to the restaurants, parks, neighborhood seafood market, bait and tackle, and pubs are just a short cart ride away. You can rent one our our licensed carts for excursions around town. New cell tower offers excellent service
Opportunities for recreation abound. The Ocala National Forest is across the river, as is the Ocklawaha River, a pristine environment that takes you back in time and also gives you your best chance to see an alligator. Take your boat out and explore, or charter one of ours, it is an opportunity not to be missed.
Silver Glen Springs and Salt Springs are located off Lake George and are a great day trip by boat. You can also take the oldest operating ferry in Florida across the river just south of us. From there you have a seven mile drive thorugh the Ocala National Forest on a dirt road into the quaint town of Salt Springs (and the Spring itself). Heading south you'll come to Juniper Springs and Run (excellent canoeing and kayaking) and Silver Glen Springs. Being in the Ocala National Forest, you'll also have access to many trails as well including the Florida Trail which, when completed, will extend from the southern tip of Florida into the panhandle.
Hiking trails in the Welaka Forest provide an up close way to see nature and allow you access to a secret spring ! Strong kayakers can rent one of ours for access by water.
