Located in majestic Old Homosassa, off Mason Creek Rd. The Withlacoochee State Forest is located just 1/2 mile from your doorstep. Enjoy wildlife coming right up to the dock as manatees and otters swim about during various times of the year. The coldest months January/February are peak for swimming with our gentle giants. Manatees give birth every year in our waters near the dock, during the spring time. It is protected, quiet with little to no boat traffic where the mother can rear the calf.
