Kings Landing is one of the most beautiful places to visit. Located near Orlando, you can rent a kayak explore “Old Florida”.
Kings Landing is a paddlesport rental operation that is located on Rock Springs Run. Kings Landing rents canoes and kayaks, and also allows people to launch their own craft. Only non-motorized vessels are allowed on the river. They include kayaks, canoes and standup paddle boards. Rental rates range from $49 to $69 and self launches cost $10. Also, parking is free and along the road outside the entrance.
