A fine conference/camp facility located deep in Ocala National Forest on a sand road. Deerhaven has nice clean 'motel like'accommodations but no phone service, only sporadic cell phone or internet service. TV is in the main lodge only. Good paddling and good home-made food. No nearby towns, markets, or restaurants. A wonderful spot with paddling suitable for beginners as well as the experienced.

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of kayaking Florida's Wild Rivers ( no whitewater, but VERY interesting...)I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a leisurely discovery of Florida's rivers.
It IS a little challenging to FIND Deerhaven, but, once you get there, it's lovely. Jim

I cannot say enough about how pleasant the people and leadership were. This was very well organized. Kathy, the on-site coordinator was amazing - not only did she ensure the field logistics were in order, but she enable the group to relax and work together. The other safety people - Pat and Kathy were also very helpful in ensuring the group was able to enjoy the Florida wilderness without incident. Kayaking was awesome and I would like to do this again next year.

I considered my first experience with Road Scholar to be an adventure..and what an adventure it was! I had never kayaked before but found the leaders to be most accommodating to ensure our safety and enjoyment In all a wonderful 'adventure"with terrific people.
