Chassahowitzka Springs Group: The Crack
"The Crack" is a secluded sulfur spring which can only be accessed by paddle craft and is located on the Chassahowitzka River in the southern region of Citrus County.
While it is named for the 30 foot long crack that cuts deep into the riverbed floor, offering an opportunity for rope swing landings and cannon balls, it is the secluded nature and open space of these sandy shallows that draws many adventurists down the path less traveled to find an afternoon retreat in paradise.
The shallow Chassahowitzka River, flowing through five thousand acres of Wildlife Preserve is a paddler's paradise, offering multiple springs, unique features and true Florida flora and fauna. Watercraft rentals as well as a boat dock for public launching are available at the Chassahowitzka River Campground.
