We had fun! It is a very large park and has very beautiful places to see. We visited during the pandemic so stuff is limited. I couldnt go to the north side of the park because it was pouring! Too bad we only stay one day...

Visited this park the day before July 4th. It was a little busy at the beginning of the day. We arrived around 8:30 am and there was a little to enter. However, since we had a lifetime membership pass we were able to go to the annual pass line. Once we were at the parking lot, we had to go in line for the tram pass and pay for air for our tubes since we brought our own. We were able to go through tubing twice and we ate lunch at the park.

The concession stand was pretty reasonable. We all had chicken ranch wrap with fries for $7.95 each. We brought our own Hydro flask full of ice. We filled it with our own water and tea.

The only I would recommend is to clean the bathrooms more often. Everything else was great!!

The ichatucknee is a beautiful day any chance you get. Unfortunately the covid 19 still has the north end closed which is zero sense when so many are in south end going twice or more down. river again. Still, for 21 years we have gone down the river and will continue at minimum a day trip yearly. So much has changed, most outside tube vendors are gone forcing lines inside. Free tram rides now cost $5.50 I think per person while entry is a cheap$6 bucks a vehicle. The water is 72 degrees cold so be ready, no throw aways items allowed to eat or drink on the river, bubba cups are fine.

My review would be a 5 start except thanks to the dumb POS that have the north entrance closed “due to covid” and then direct you to the midpoint launch at the south entrance, only to then find out after paying and going in that the walk(the team/shuttle which was PACKED) only allows tubes(no kayaks or paddle boards) and otherwise the walk is a 10 minute walk. So after both entrances saw we had 3 small children and 4 giant kayak/paddle boards and never have mentioned this, to the turned around and went back. Fortunately for us we still had a 15 minutes trip from a family members home once you are out of the state park to partake in the wonders of the river, but anyone coming w far ways would be pissed beyond belief that no one knows or states this in advance. The north entrance and the south entrance workers have no idea what the other is doing. The raft rental company inside of the south entrance also enforced us once we were past the 10 minute walk(which anyone with a kayak would know more than 25-50 feet is about too far to carry one and kayakers 100% already can obey covid-19’s 6 feet rule but on a very busy day on the river on a raft there would be an extremely large amount of rule breakers so there is absolutely no reason why tubing should be allowed but kayakers can’t) but then the rental company had the audacity to inform us even if we did enter at the south entrance we would then have to paddle north(upstream) to get to the midpoint then be then allowed to kayak south(total BS nonsense) so my rate should be zero but I know how beautiful the river is and the rating would NEVER not be 5 stars if anyone with a brain took 1 minutes to think about the best way to handle this pandemic. Even now that we are out of phase 1, the tram with floaters looked like a packed Disney World tram on a beautiful summer day with not one care in the world for social distancing.

We had the chance to paddle board down the Ichetucknee Springs this weekend with my friends and really was amazed how beautiful this place was. I suggest that you arrive when the gates open or it may be full by noon. The price is $6 per vehicle and there is a extra few to take the shuttle. This is about a 45-1 hour float I suggest to paddle up stream then float.
