Crystal River Preserve State Park

(352) 228-6028

Visitors can hike or bicycle along seven miles of pet-friendly trails or study the native wildlife and plants on the two mile interpretive trail. Anglers can walk down a short path to the Mullet Hole for a relaxing afternoon of fishing. Paddlers can launch a kayak or canoe into the waters of the scenic Crystal River to see the park from the water.

There is also a visitor center with large dioramas, aquariums, and exhibits. There is also a native plants garden outside with a pond and waterfall.

The park is right next door to the Crystal River Archaeological State Park.

The five trail heads are open daily from 8:00 AM until sundown, 365 days a year. The interpretive center is closed on weekends.

No entrance fee is required to enter this park.
