  • I went with friends to see the beautiful springs and to see Florida wildlife. Well I saw lots of wildlife and beautiful scenic views of the river. We got to see manatees and alligators and a huge vari...  read more »
  • We were in the September 2016 there. The Park cost $5 admission per car and that is very cheap. You can swim there in the river and also Picnicing. Very idyllic and located in untouched nature. Then we did a boat tour. It has 6 per person $ cost, which is not much. Because the tour was really great. We have seen many alligators and birds. Some turtles. To do this, the Guide has many information about the fauna and flora here us. A visit is worthwhile in any case

  • Beautiful location, plenty of history and a fabulous meal! Can't wait to return! Take the boat tour and listen to the film history of the spring. Tarzan, Creature from the black lagoon and airplane. 
  • Wakulla Springs is one of my favorite places in the world. I can never get enough of jumping off the tower into the cold spring water on a hot summer day. The beauty and nostalgia of the place is unmatched anywhere in the world. If you've never been, a meal in the restaurant or counter service for some ice cream is definitely part of the experience to take home with you. The lodge has an old time feeling that you rarely find.
  • Excellent place to cool off on a hot summer day. The facts about this place are incredible - 300 million gallons of water a day pumping out of this place!? And only a few feet away from where you swim. The water is always cold so it's best on really hot days. On cooler days, take the boat ride and see manatees, alligators, and all of the unique wildlife that live on this untouched waterway. The soda jerk in the lodge is pretty cool. This is our first stop when visitors are in town.
  • I've always loved Wakulla Springs and I've spent many hot Florida summer days cooling off in the springs and admiring the crystal clear water. Unfortunately though, the Springs are being polluted and it's slowly dying. If you're interested in preserving this wonderful location and the animals living within it like the manatees, please read this article on what's going on: Go to Tallahassee . com and type in their search box "Wakulla Springs at the brink", it's the first article result. (Google doesn't allow links to be posted in reviews or I would have just linked to the article). Perhaps we can get a petition going or something and rally enough attention to actually make sure Wakulla Springs is preserved.
  • So beautiful and fun. Has two tier tower to jump off of. A lodge to stay and sleep as needed. Glass bottom boats and regular charter boats. $8 adults and $5 kids 12 and under. Veterans, if you bring your DD214 and copy of disability, you get all access to all Florida state parks and boat ramps at state parks. Family oriented and educational.
  • This is a neat park. There are platforms to swim out to in the spring, and some platforms to jump off into the water. There is also a river tour boat that goes up and down the river. I heard some people saying they say alligators and manatees on the tour. We saw lots of turtles also. Nice place for a picnic and a swim on a hot summer day.
