Chassahowitzka River Experiences & Suggestions (6)

Set 1 of 3
Chassahowitzka River – Springs and Culture Feb 23, 2017 - The Chassahowitzka River and its springs would be considered deep in the Florida backwoods. It was the desire to explore the backwater springs and the culture of the state that led me here.
Springs & wildlife make this river a special kayak trail Feb 15, 2017 - We didn't care that we didn't spot the manatees that frequent the Chaz or the bald eagles we were told to watch for. Let's not be greedy: It is a splendid kayaking river for the scenery alone.
Set 2 of 3
Benjamin Dimmitt: Chassahowitaka Saltwater Intrusion May 31, 2016 - I first discovered Benjamin Dimmit's stellar photographs when Alexa Dilworth and I jurored the Slow Exposures Exhibition in 2014 and selected some of his work for the show. His black and white capture of southern places, specifically the coastal waterways of Florida, were stunning in their composition and silver gelatin printing.
Chassahowitzka River Campground, Florida May 10, 2016 - We arrived at Chassahowitzka River Campground near Homosassa, Florida at 2:30 PM and set up camp. This was a nice campground with trees and a campfire ring. We tend to really like places like this.
Set 3 of 3
Kayaking Adventure on the Chassahowitzka River in Homosassa, FL Apr 2, 2016 - I recently spent a few days camping near and exploring the Chassahowitzka River (pronounced Chaz-wits-kuh), or Chaz as the locals call it, along Florida's Nature Coast in Homosassa Springs.
Chassahowitzka River Kayaking Part Two Apr 2, 2016 - Our adventure continues, read Part One here, with a mother manatee and calf right in front of the boat launch and docks. The fact that these two made it into the No Wake zone is a miracle in itself.
