Wakulla River

The 11 mile long Wakulla River emerges from one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the World. Hourly 125,000 gallons of fresh water flow out of a 120 foot deep cave. From the time of the paleo-indians Wakulla Springs has been a gathering place, and today it is a state park with lodging, swimming and boat rides on the beautiful Wakulla River. The river has been sheltered and protected over the years and is rich with wild life.
