Ichetucknee Springs State Park might be difficult to pronounce, but it certainly isn’t difficult to enjoy!
This amazing part of nature in Florida surrounds the crystalline Ichetucknee River! The river, of course, means there is swimming and tubing available for those active kids…just to add to the collection of fun that can be had!
The river is perfect from May until early September, and is one of the best spots in the area to enjoy it! In addition to tubing and swimming, there is a host of other water activities that you can get up to as a family! How about snorkeling and trying to see how much wildlife you can spot? How about grabbing a canoe or a kayak and relaxing on the waters as you cruise down looking for wildlife?
Want to hear something even more exciting! If you are cave certified for diving, from October to March you can dive in the Blue Hole! Sounds pretty awesome!
The wildlife in Ichetucknee Springs State Park is just as awesome Try and spot raccoons, white-tailed deer, wood ducks, wild turkeys, and even great blue heron – they can all be seen from the river!
Really make a day out it out in this beautiful Florida state park! There are picnic areas fully equipped with grills and tales, where you can bring you own lunch and enjoy it in the shade (perhaps the kids want to have a go at making the sandwiches!)
The snorkeling, tubes and diving equipment can be rented from private vendors outside of the park, but of course you can bring your own too!
Don’t forget those hats and sunscreen – it’s Florida remember, and you will certainly want to be enjoying that sun!
