A park that is pristine virtually untouched since the 1930's. Hiking, swimming, and boat rides are available. Food is available at the Wakulla lodge. Close to Tallahassee but seems miles away.

This is a great place to come cool off during the really hot summer days. The water at first is freezing but just right after you dive in. It is especially wonderful when the temperature is really hot. It's a beautiful setting. There's a playground...More

Yes, but be aware of other wildlife in area. ie, snakes, bear, coyete, eagles, etc. and keep pets close.
