The jump from the 22 foot dive/observation tower at Wakulla Springs State Park into the 69 degree water of Wakulla Spring may be one of the most exhilarating things to do in Wakulla County. It certainly is a rite of passage that has been enjoyed by generations of beach-goers at Wakulla Springs State Park.
For those less adventurous, the grassy beach along the Wakulla River is the perfect place to spread a towel and catch some rays. If the sun gets too hot, it is simple to move to the shade of an ancient cypress tree. The 69 degree freshwater is the perfect antidote to intense summer heat.
Of course, a dip on a cool winter's day is not out of the question for those who cannot resist the water's siren call. The now relatively warm water is great until you need to get out!
The beach is available for park guests to enjoy year round. It opens by 9:30am each day with closing times varying dependent upon available daylight.
The beach closes when thunderstorms threaten.
