    We rented Kayaks from Paddling Adventures inside the park. The river is beautiful and clear, easy kayaking. We saw turtles, mullet and cranes along the ride. I would love to do the ride again when it ...  more »

    We visited the springs on a Tuesday the week before school started. Everyone warned us about the long lines, so we got there at 7:50 a.m. (10 minutes before opening). We were literally the second car ...  more »

    Beautiful, natural springs. Go there with tubes to enjoy the hour long trip downstream (you can rent tubes close by too). There is place to park your cars and the trip back will be a short walk on a mile long trail. The canopy of trees keeps the place quite cool. The sun rays find the way between the tall trees and light up the place beautifully. It is quiet, it is clean (no garbage or plastic stuff floating around). You might get wet, depending on how adventurous you want to get, so carry a set of dry clothes. You will not get anything to eat/ drink on your trip downstream. I doubt you'll mobile signal here and also, there are no lifeguards as such, but then again, the place appeared to be safe.

    This park is really great for the family. We went tubing during the Memorial day weekend so it was a little busy but still lots of fun. Memorial Day weekend is the first weekend for visitors to use the river from the north end to the midpoint so the grass was high which made it tough to see the bottom but there was plenty of beautiful nature to see. I would recommend to drop off the family at the north end to minimize the cost for using the bus tram from the south end to the north end.

    I always love canoeing Ichetucknee Springs! It's about a 1.5-2 hour trip. This time we took the kiddos and they had a great time too. The staff is always super friendly and helpful. When we went in March we got to see a manatee! My only criticism is pickup after the float trip. One time we had to wait 45 minutes because there were people blocking the loading zone so that the van crew couldn't get through. The second time we got lucky and were able to get in the van but some people behind us couldn't fit and had to wait longer.

    Love loved loved, relaxing, clean feeling after you get off your 1hr float or your 1.5hr float. We enjoyed our short time here! Definitely will return. Felt like a lost puppy during the off season not enough signs telling us wear to go😅. Wear river shoes for sure if the tram is not running. Great shade, picnic areas.

    A great place to tube! You can go down the river for 45 min or 2 hours from the south entrance! The staff was very nice and accommodating and there were tubes on site of all different sizes. The springs are nice and there are some fish to see and it's very relaxing!
