Located approximately 8 miles south of Ponce de Leon off State Road 81, Bruce Creek Landing features a small boat launch that provides access Bruce Creek and, ultimately, the Choctawhatchee River.

The launch is paved.

The recreation site also features a fire pit and parking for up to 10 vehicles.

A short walking path from the boat launch offers several shaded spots for fishing off the banks of the river. A canopy of cypress trees and other hardwoods provided natural shelter from the sun.

The Choctawhatchee River is considered the third-largest in the state in volume of water discharged and provides nearly 90 percent of the freshwater in Choctawhatchee Bay.

The river is also a Florida Designated Paddling Trail.

Anglers will find the Choctawhatchee River filled with a variety of fish, including striped bass, hybrid striped bass (sunshine bass), largemouth bass, bream, bluegill, shellcracker, crappie, catfish, and many other species.
