Welcome to Ichetucknee Springs State Park
Traveling the pristine waters of the Ichetucknee River is the perfect outing, whether you’re looking for a vigorous adventure or a relaxing day on the water.
Grab a kayak, canoe, paddleboard, or tube and enjoy a refreshing trip down this unique spring-fed river. You’ll experience the real Florida in this majestic and diverse ecosystem, and barely break a sweat under its lush canopy. Multiple picnic spots and swimming holes make it the ideal day trip.
The crystalline Ichetucknee River flows six miles through shaded hammocks and wetlands before it joins the Santa Fe River.
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. Scuba diving is available daily in the Blue Hole only (you MUST be Cave Certified). White-tailed deer, raccoons, wild turkeys, wood ducks and great blue herons can be seen from the river. Picnic areas, equipped with tables and grills, are available throughout the park.
A full-service concession offers food, refreshments and outdoor products from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Tubes, snorkeling and diving equipment can be rented within the park or from private vendors outside the park located four miles northwest of Fort White, off State Roads 47 and 238.
