Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park
Built around one of the world’s largest springs, the park serves as a sanctuary for one of Florida’s finest areas for wildlife observation. Visitors come from all over the world to take the river boat cruise for guaranteed spectacular views of resident and migratory birds, alligators of all sizes, turtles, and fish. Guests should be certain to bring a camera. Watch for manatees in the river and spring. They can be seen at any time of year, but are most common October through January. Populations of whitetail deer, wild turkey and other wildlife live in or along the protected river corridor and surrounding sylvan glades of the park. In late spring or early fall, be sure to catch the amazing twilight roosting display of chimney swifts as they circle and dive into one of the chimneys atop the historic lodge.
