The Atmosphere
Image The atmosphere of the club still exudes from the dark brown wood, the pecky cypress dining room, the mounted grouper and tarpon trophies, the deer and 'gator skins, the pillared front porch, and the casually appointed registration desk. There is wicker furniture along a grand old screened porch which is ideal for watching the pelicans perched on the pilings and for checking on the river traffic.

Off to the side there is a swimming pool. At dockside, charter captains and guides pick up guests for a day of fishing the flats and backwaters of the glades. Skiffs and canoes can also be rented here.
