Itchetucknee Springs

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, scuba diving, canoeing, swimming, hiking, and wildlife viewing. 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. The springs are located four miles northwest of Fort White, off State Roads 47 and 238.

San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park

The many different flags welcoming visitors to San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park demonstrate the colorful history of this site, from the first Spanish explorers to the present day. The history of this National Landmark began in 1528 when Panfilo de Narvaez arrived in the area with 300 men; however, the first fort was not built until 1679. Andrew Jackson occupied the fort for a brief time in the early 1800s. The museum at the park displays pottery and tools unearthed near the original fort and explains the history of the San Marcos site. A self-guided trail is open to visitors and guided tours are available with two weeks advance notice. The museum is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Thursday through Monday, except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day. The park is located in St. Marks, off State Road 363, on Old Fort Road.

Ochlockneee River State Park

As winter quickly becomes a distant memory, numerous varieties of spring wild flowers are starting to show their colors at Ochlockonee River State Park. Among these flowers are several species of rare orchids. The many different species of flowering plants in the open vistas of this beautiful park are a result of many years of prescribed burning. In our many creeks and rivers, crappie (locally known as speckled perch) and largemouth bass will be spawning. This is a great opportunity to catch these species, along with the salt water species in the gulf. If you enjoy birding- wild turkeys, red-cockaded Woodpeckers and many other species can be viewed. This is an excellent time of the year to canoe our many rivers and creeks
