Ichetucknee Springs State Park is located in central Florida. The park is open year round, but summer season is when most people visit to go tubing. The tube launches are open Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Our family likes to get up super early and arrive at the north entrance to float the entire river. The trip from the north end takes 3.5 hours and they only allow a very limited number of people down the river from the north end each day.

If you arrive early enough for the north launch, your driver will drop you and then park at the south end takeout and take a shuttle back up to join you.

At the south entrance, Dampier’s Landing, there is a concession and general store. They sell ice cream, rent tubes, and have bathrooms where you can change.

You can bring your own tubes to Ichetucknee, rent them inside the park, or stop at a tube rental spot outside the park. Stopping outside the park is what most people do and the tube centers will even help you strap them to the car.
