A great trip would be to head downstream to the confluence of the creek and river. During low tide, there is a sandbar that almost prevents you from entering the river. This section of the creek is more saline of an environment and a good place to take note of the types of plants and fish that live in such places.
As you make your way back upstream, you may notice shell formations near the dock at low tide. This was an old corduroy road used during the colonial period for transporting tobacco to the boats and ships headed for England.
As you paddle, you will notice observation decks on the left bank. These decks are part of the Taskinas Creek trail. The longest of these is so close to the water that you may strike up a conversation with a hiker or two.
About 3/4 of a mile from the dock, the creek splits into two branches. The one on the right is blocked. It is possible to paddle quite a ways on the left branch on a high tide. This is where the water becomes more fresh and there are more fallen trees to cope with.
There are picnic shelters for rent and a gazebo with a great view of the confluence of the creek and river. The park boast almost 30 miles of trails
The fee at the Croaker Landing section is $6 to cover state boat ramp and pier fees
