Suwannee River

Ichetucknee Springs State Park

ICS-EnjoyingtheSpring-marBy Water 29.932363, -82.799938

State Park Website

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. October through March scuba diving is available 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 plus snorkeling and diving equipment can be rented from private vendors outside the park located four miles northwest of Fort White, off State Roads 47 and 238.

You can not take your boat into the springs. However, Most people dock where the springs meet the river and spend the day.

After your hunting or fishing trip, relax in our fully equipped efficiencies, or join us around the campfire in the evenings.
Any forgotten supplies may be purchased next door at "Treasure Camp on the Suwannee" country store. They also provide casual dining for your pleasure. Steak nights and their bar-b-que are perfect end to a day on the river!
