River Rise Preserve State Park
Welcome to River Rise Preserve State Park
The Santa Fe River goes underground in O'Leno State Park and reemerges over three miles away in River Rise Preserve State Park as a circular pool before resuming its journey to the Suwannee River.
Surrounded by quiet woods and huge trees, anglers can spend a relaxing afternoon fishing on the river. Hiking and wildlife viewing are also favorite pastimes for park visitors.
Equestrians, hikers and "fat-tire" cyclists can explore over 35 miles of trails. Equestrians can end the day camping overnight at the park's primitive equestrian camp consisting of primitive campsites, a bathhouse, and a 20-stall horse barn available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Located on U.S. 27 just outside of High Springs.
