Yankeetown

The Yankeetown to Cedar Key area, where TowBoatU.S. houses its Northernmost boat, is an escape from modern day florida. Nestled on the coast near Withlacoochee Bay in Levy County, Yankeetown is home to approximately 502 residents and houses an abundance of wildlife and natural resources. Visitors in the area can find small-town charm along the streets of Yankeetown and peaceful tranquility in the waters surrounding the area.

Withlacoochee Gulf Preserve, Cedar Key Scrub State Preserve, and Waccasassa State Park are several of the protected areas in Levy County. Boaters can find quiet fishing waters, camping grounds, and natural trails in the parks. Manatees, eagles, American alligators other endangered species live among the marshes and are protected by the preservations here.

Although the area marinas offer food and supplies for boaters, transient slips are not available in the Cedar Key area, and fuel is scarce.
