Located 10 +/- minutes upriver from Lake Rousseau and three minutes downriver from the boat ramp adjacent to the blue gator restaurant in historic downtown Dunnellon this expansive island chain offers a piece of the historic part of the state. Caught in the stream of time between the banks of the Withlacoochee river these islands remain in their natural state and extend for nearly a mile on the south side of the river's main confluence. Here among the cypress and palmettos would be an excellent location for an authentic primitive fish camp where one could hit the pause button on everyday life and press play on river life. beach your boat on your private island and enjoy the day beneath the cypress canopy or explore the Withlacoochee down to Lake Rousseau for some bass fishing and back upriver again to the blue gator for lunch before exploring the rainbow river, a nearby tributary, home to a magnitude 1 spring with the fourth-highest flow of all springs in the state. The state doesn't get more real than this. Owning an island is as close as you can get to owning a piece of the river itself.
