Park Activities

The crystalline Ichetucknee River flows six miles through shaded hammocks and wetlands before it joins the Santa Fe River. In 1972, the head spring of the river was declared a National Natural Landmark by the U. S. Department of the Interior. From the end of May until early September, tubing down the river is the premier activity in the area. In addition to tubing, visitors can enjoy picnicking, snorkeling, canoeing, swimming, hiking, and wildlife viewing.

I will start by saying the ichetucknee is a beautiful park within the state park system and the two star rating is not relating to the beauty of the park...

I discovered Ichetucknee Springs and river back in the 80's while living in Jacksonville. It's about 1-1/2 hour ride from Jacksonville to reach the park....

This popular park is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Arriving early is recommended as the park fills up quickly.

Arrive early because the park only allows a certain amount of people down the river each day!

This river used to be a white sand bottom. Now the state park doesn't want you to even touch the grass in the river. Definitely not as pretty as I once remember!

Great place for a float trip. Make sure you grab your tube before you arrive - about 2 miles from the south entrance.
