IMPORTANT PARK INFORMATION:
River Flood Update: As of 7/22/21 the Ichetucknee River is at Flood Stage, but we are still open for all river activities. Please be advised that tube launches are closing earlier than normal. Midpoint Launch closes when the limit of 3000 tubers has been met, or 3pm; and Dampier’s Landing closes at 4pm (for tubers) while the river is flooded. Due to slow current, tubing trip times are longer than normal. Midpoint tubing takes approximately 3.5 hours. Dampier’s Landing takes approximately 1.5-2 hours. We recommend all tubers take a paddle on the river. The river still closes at 6pm- please plan accordingly.
Spring-fed rivers, lush canopies and cool swimming holes.
Discover the beauty of Ichentuckee State Park.
Ichetucknee State Park is home to the pristine Ichetucknee River, a crystalline natural waterway which flows six miles through shaded hammocks and floodplain forests. The upper 3.5 mile stretch of the river is protected in the state park and contains eight major springs.
The Ichetucknee Head Spring is a National Natural Landmark. The Head Spring, along with eight other named springs feed the Ichetucknee River, creating a blue-green waterway that is a pleasant 72 degrees. No motorized boats are allowed ensuring the preservation of this natural beauty.
Ichetucknee Springs State Park is perfect for tubing, kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding, swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving.
Although well-known for its warm weather tubing, the 2,669-acre Ichetucknee Springs State Park is also a wildlife haven, where beaver, otter, gar, softshell turtle, wild turkey, wood duck, and limpkin all find a home.
Three nature trails also guide visitors through the lush park forest or through a majestic sandhill environment with towering longleaf pines.
