We had a great afternoon renting 2 kayaks from Anderson. Their staff could not be more helpful or flexible and we had a lovely experience. We even saw manatees from off our Kayaks as we came back into the park from the river. Terrific!!

This restaurant has great pizza but the tables and everything is so close together you can't hear yourself talk which makes it uncomfortable

We camped at Manatee Springs State Park and rented paddle boards from Anderson Outdoor Adventures. Very reasonable at $16/two hours. Also ate at their snack bar - some of the best pulled pork I have ever had.
