Dunns Creek State Park
Due to a restoration project, the Blue Pond Trail will be CLOSED until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Welcome to Dunns Creek State Park
Located south of a sharp bend in the St. Johns River, more than 6,200 acres of natural communities are represented in Dunns Creek State Park.
These natural communities include sandhills, covered with longleaf pines, wiregrass and sand pine scrub. These protect several endangered and threatened species, such as the gopher tortoise, fox squirrels and other native animals.
The main entrance to the park is located at 320 Sisco Road. Visitors can drive or hike down the main park drive, viewing the amazing natural communities and abundant wildlife. Access to Dunns Creek, an ADA compliant fishing platform and floating canoe launch, restroom facilities and a parking area are located at the end of the main drive.
A second entrance to the park, located just off of U.S. 17, north of Pomona Park, includes marked trails and a picnic area. The 1.5-mile yellow hiking and bicycling trail takes visitors to the pristine waters of Blue Pond.
Looking for more outdoor adventure while you are in the area? Why not explore one of our neighboring parks: Ravine Gardens State Park, Palatka to St. Augustine Trail, Rodman Recreation Area and Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway.
