Inexpensive because it is a state park. Good facilities (bathrooms, picnic tables, grills, playground) but the real star is the springs. Beautiful, clear and full of life. There is a shuttle service from the south river get out point to the north so you can leave your vehicle there for when you get out. If you want to tube the... More

This was fasinating! Water was super clear! Turtles everywhere! It was a nice trip on a kayak. You can also rent tubes and just let the water take you.

Take your family, friends, cook out, tube down the stream and enjoy yourselves, the view is fantastic, the staff is cordial, the water is very relaxing, kids had a blast, we go quite regularly, it's inexpensive and great family time outing.

We stayed at the nearby campground and rented a double kayak with them. You get dropped at the kayak launch site and then picked up at the end of the ride about 4 miles downstream. It's a beautiful slow ride down the stream. The aquatic vegetation, the color of the water, the haunted looking trees, the several dozen turtles basking... More

Highly reccommend State park ! They don't rent tubes there. Make sure you stop and rent your tube before you get there. On US 27 / CR 18 they have two tube rentals. We have rented from both. Great prices and service !

The lower springs takes you on a beautiful walk through the woods where a small deck overlooks the springs. The upper spring is wide open and it's much easier to walk right in. Unfortunately, my young, adventurous daughter got a little too excited and fell in! O, if you go with young ones, and you don't intend to swim, make... More

Having lately concentrated my Florida Springs visits in the Salt-Silver Glen-Juniper-Alexander springs area, it had been several years since I'd been to Ichetucknee. And I was happy to find out that it was as enjoyable as ever--especially because the weather was great. On a weekend when much of the US was experiencing freezing temps and snow, it was in the...

We have been here before kayaking, stopped in this time to walk the trails and look at the springs. Water was up and the spring was blue and clear. Little cat in parking lot that I fed chicken to, he was very hungry! Looking forward to when we can come back and kayak
