Crystal River Preserve State Park

Crystal River Preserve is a true mosaic. Within its borders are more than 27,500 acres of scrub, pinewoods, hardwood forests, salt marshes and mangrove islands. Much of the property is still untouched, allowing visitors a glimpse of what this area of Florida looked like centuries ago.

The park is a year-round destination for hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding and bird-watching. The preserve's wetlands play an important role in refreshing Florida's aquifer, making the area essential for Florida's wildlife and human communities. Contact Crystal River Preserve Adventures for kayaking or boat tours.
