Summer Season
Begins the Saturday before Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Swim at your own risk/ Lifeguard not on duty.

Swimming/snorkelling is available every day of the year from 8 am until sundown at the North Entrance. Here, you may swim at either Ichetucknee Spring (head spring) good for all ages or Blue Hole Spring.

Ichetucknee Spring provides for excellent swimming; however, Blue Hole Spring should be used by experienced swimmers only, due to the depth and strong current.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome at Ichetucknee Springs State Park. They must be kept on a 6-foot leash at all times and cannot be left unattended for more than a half-hour.

Dogs are only permitted on the Trestle Point and Pine Ridge Trails located at the North End.

Dogs are not permitted on the trails to the springs or river or in the springs or river.

A full-service concession stand is located at the SOUTH Entrance. It is open every day during the summer season and may be operational during the off-season, depending on park visitation. The concessionaire carries a wide assortment of food, refreshments, and personal items.


There are three unique hiking trails located at the North Entrance of the park. Trail maps are available at the Ranger Station or information booth.

Blue Hole Trail: A half-mile walk through the Ichetucknee forest and cypress flood plain lead to Blue Hole Spring, the largest spring in the park.

Trestle Point Trail: This shaded path winds along the crystal clear waters of the Ichetucknee River. The self-guided trail will take you back in time to the early 1900s when phosphate ore was mined in the area. Walk time is approximately 30 minutes.

Pine Ridge Trail: A frequently overlooked area of the park is the majestic sandhill, with its towering longleaf pine and wide open vistas. View the natural diversity of this unique and vanishing ecosystem. The self-guided 2-mile loop trail will take approximately 1 hour 15 minutes.
