River of mystery

A beautiful river to kayak down, unspoiled wilderness.... so close to home


Thonotosassa is a creek/Seminole Indian word translated as “plenty of flint”. In the era 5000 BC – 1600 AD the area around Lake Thonotosassa was used periodically by Florida’s earliest Indian inhabitants as a major source of flint for tools and projectile points for arrows and spears. Around 1820 a group of 200 Alachua Seminoles settled here and it is from them that the name Thonotosassa came to be applied to the area around their village.
