Fed by nine springs, the Ichetucknee River lets visitors experience the natural beauty of its blue-green waterways year-round. Let the gentle current of the bright turquoise river guide you on a relaxing retreat through shaded hammocks and forests of cypress, maple, oak and pine.
I recently went to the springs to Tube with my family. In the past, we have rented outside the park. They now offer rentals right inside. No need to find a house on the side of the road. Drive into the park, rent your tubes and they transport you up to launch and back again. Way easier and not expensive. Just make sure to park at the South Entrance. Will be back6/19/2019
Paddling Adventures are located in the back of the parking lot of Ichetucknee Springs. Park in the main parking lot and walk down dirt road to their office. They will offer 2 different trips. One trip is offered to the south entrance of the park which is about 2.5 hrs or you can do the all day trip which gets out at the 129 bridge. The all day trip is well worth it. They will pick you up at either location and bring you back to the north entrance.4/30/2017
Spent a Saturday afternoon in the end of September kayaking from the north entrance of Ichetucknee Springs State Park to the south entrance. Rented from Paddling Adventures at the North entrance.

What a great trip it was to Ichetucknee Springs! Try saying that a couple times! The park is very nice & well kept. The water is amazingly clear. The tubing, kayaking, paddling options are perfect for the entire family. Highly recommend for a weekend trip with the family. There is a great assortment of food options that go from healthy salads & wraps to juicy burgers and yummy hot dogs. For Florida's hot and humid weather they offer ice cream and slushies!6/06/2019
My boyfriend and I decided to do the advertised 9 mile kayaking excursion. Everything was easy to set up online last minute, there was no wait to get our equipment. Very fairly priced, considering we got picked up at the end and brought back to our car by a couple of wonderful employees. If you're interested in this, go with questions ready. We're fairly fit young people, and we struggled quite a bit for the last 2 hours of this 5 hour excursion. Advertised as 9 miles but was actually... read more5/23/2019
