Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park


Wakulla Springs is internationally known as one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the world and the park is host to an abundance of wildlife, including White Tailed Deer, Alligators, Suwannee River Cooters, Manatees, Wood Ducks, Anhinga, and Yellow-Crowned Night Herons. Daily guided riverboat tours provide a close view of wildlife and glass-bottom boat tours are offered when the water is clear. Swimming is a popular activity during the hot summer months but remember that the water temperature remains a constant 69 degrees year-round! A nature trail offers a leisurely walk along the upland wooded areas of the park. The Wakulla Springs Lodge was built in 1937 by financier Edward Ball and is open year-round. Wakulla Springs State Park and Lodge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is designated as a National Natural Landmark. The Lodge has a full-service dining room overlooking the spring, overnight lodging, gift shop, and interpretive exhibits.
