Gardner to Gardner/Upstream:

Distance: Up to you
Cost: $80.00 per canoe for two people plus tax
Time: Two days, one night. Each additional night after the first night is $25 plus tax per canoe/kayak. Time paddling is up to you. Best at low water.

Check-in in Arcadia, then drive to Gardner to park and depart from Gardner. Paddle upstream into the wilderness Zolfo Springs stretch, camp anywhere on left-hand side (right hand side when you’re coming down!). Paddle back to Gardner when you’re done, back to your vehicles in Gardner. You take your camping gear with you. This is a good one for when the water is low, there’s not much paddling (depends on how far you go) and you’re still doing wilderness.
