The primary access point to Alexander Creek, 52 Landing (also the site of the Bluff Landing primitive camping area) is the take-out for a downstream paddle of Alexander Run or can be used as a launch point for a paddle upstream. It is bordered by the wild and wet Alexander Springs Wilderness, which you can explore with a paddle downstream. Primitive camping is permitted on a bluff above the boat ramp.
Pets: Dogs are welcome on the forest, but are required to be on a leash at all times. Dogs are not allowed on the beach at swimming areas. For more information, please contact Lake George Ranger Station at 352-625-2520.
