Econlockhatchee River

The Econlockhatchee River is located in Orlando, Florida, a serpentine type of waterway that winds in an easterly direction towards the Atlantic Ocean. In fact, the river has become a haven for fun and numerous activities for many locals and visitors.

The river runs through ancient cypress and oak forests and amazing wetlands, feeding other rivers along its way. It is a free attraction that has far more to do than might seem at first, especially as it is a natural place where many locals go to unwind and enjoy outdoor pursuits.

The river has varied activities to enjoy, including photographing its scenery and wildlife, relaxing on the steps of log cabins over-looking its expanse, fishing in its quiet spots, hiking through its forests, paddling in canoes towards its mouth and camping on its lengthy beaches. Many of its shorelines are ideal for horseback riding. Its waters are so calm that air-boating is an ideal sport that gives visitors access to nearby wildlife and alligators.

The Econlockhatchee River is a good place for kayaking and other sports when the weather is idyllic. However, access to the river is restricted when the rain comes as it quite often swells into a raging torrent. Despite this, the river is a haven of pleasure that comes recommended to one and all.
