Alexander Creek differs significantly from many other Florida spring fed runs in the sense that it starts out slow-moving and wide (first photo taken from bridge), but downstream becomes quite narrow, swift, and intimate (second photo), just the opposite of most others.
You can start the run from Alexander Springs Park. There is an admission fee around $3 per person. Canoes can be rented for about $26. Camping is available for a fee. There is not a boat ramp, but canoes and kayaks can be unloaded and carried to the spring. The park includes swimming at the spring head, nature trails, picnic areas and food concessions. There is a bridge you pass over before you arrive at the park. We put in at this bridge (no fees). It is about a mile paddle to the spring from the bridge. If you paddle to the spring you will have to pay the park fee to gain access to the spring head or disembark to use the park facilities.
