The full name of the park is actually Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park. It is located in the Northwest Region of Florida, south of Tallahassee.
There is a dive tower you can go on. In the summer months people jump and dive off of it. There are no manatee floating there during the warmer months.
It’s a great place to get a good view of the area.
Notice the white mark on the baby? It’s a scar from being hit by a boat propeller. Most all the Manatee you see have similar scars.
Here is a Manatee nose coming up for a breath of air.
There is no camping here but they have a large lodge priced at $95-105 nightly. They have a restaurant, gift shop, snack bar, lobby with TV and roaring large fireplace! It’s quite nice.
It is a great place for a day visit. It cost $6.00 per car and $8.00 per adult for a boat tour (recommended) and $5.00 for children. There is a nice little swimming beach.
We did find out that they use Work Campers and have a little work camper village where you can stay for free with your RV in exchange for working at the park.
Here is a little campground near Wakulla and St. Marks. It’s sometimes used by hunters (not our favorite) but is in a good location. It’s not the prettiest campground we’ve ever seen but it adequate. We intend to stay there sometime to be closer to the coast and to St Marks.
