The South Bay RV Campground in the western part of the county is a spacious, fully-equipped site that includes boat ramp access to Lake Okeechobee. CANOEING AND KAYAKING A wonderfully scenic paddling experience is the 7.6-mile stretch of the Loxahatchee River from Riverbend Park in Jupiter downstream to Jonathan Dickinson State Park. Whether you're looking for a one- or two-hour kid-friendly trip or prefer to embark on an all-day adventure, the Loxahatchee offers a variety of options. And even if you rent a canoe or kayak, it's an inexpensive form of outdoor exercise and fun. For more information, check out the website, SURFING The Atlantic Ocean forms the entire eastern boundary of Palm Beach County, but it's not always conducive for great surfing, especially during the summer months, unless there's a tropical storm or hurricane brewing offshore. However, what it lacks in wave consistency, it makes up for in quality. When the waves are good, such as when winter low-pressure systems deliver fairly consistent groundswell toward the beaches, there's some good spots for surfers, most notably Reef Road which is tucked away in the north end of the county's riches real estate, as well as, off the Jupiter Inlet , and Juno Beach Pier. Check out www. for the latest surf reports and live video web cams. TENNIS Most of the numerous private country clubs have tennis courts, as do 12 of the county parks (go to for loca- tions). One of the nicest full-service public tennis facilities is the Delray Beach Tennis Center near the bustling downtown Atlantic Avenue in the heart of the city. It has 14 clay courts, six hard-surface courts and an 8,200- seat stadium, and offers a variety of adult and junior programs, clinics and camps. The center hosts the ATP World Tour's Delray Beach Open tournament in February each year. There's also the Delray Swim & Tennis Club that has 24 clay courts. WATER SKIING Okeeheelee Park just west of West Palm Beach has a nationally recognized compet- itive water ski venue that offers five courses for traditional, barefoot, wakeboard and kneeboard skiing, including one course that is lighted for night skiing. Only USA Water Ski-approved boats are permitted. There's also the Intracoastal Waterway that stretches the entire north-south length of the county, as well as numerous canals throughout the county. Just be sure to obey the no-wake zones.
