Spring Hopping and Tubing in North Florida

  • August 9, 2014 · 7:00 AM

Spring Hopping and Tubing Weekend
Join us for a weekend of fun in north Florida. We will meet and depart from Orlando at 7:00 a.m. to drive up. If meeting there, we will be in High Springs about 9:30 a.m. Contact me for where you plan to meet up with us. We will spend all day on Saturday hitting as many of the fresh water springs as we can. We will spend the night in High Springs. I have a few rooms already reserved. Contact me for a room on your own or to share. Bring lunch with you. I will have a couple of coolers and ice. Afterwards we will retreat to our hotel to check in, clean up and then off to the “Great Outdoors” Restaurant for dinner and entertainment. Next morning we will eat at the “Springs Diner” then head to Ichetucknee Springs State Park to tube down the river. Plan to share costs for gas, hotel rooms, tube rental and bring your money for admission to some of the springs including Ichetucknee Springs State Park. There is a rental fee for tubes and the shuttle. We will put in at the north entrance. Returning back to Orlando late on Sunday. Bring your water proof camera, snorkel, mask and sunscreen. Lunch on Sunday will be at the State Park unless you want to bring something for that day too.
Contact leader, Rodney Posey for more information or rent one of the rooms I have already reserved. [masked] or[masked] after 5:00 p.m. Group size limited to 15.

    Hey, I see the group filled up, but my wife and I will be in High Springs staying with family this weekend anyway. Would it be alright if we met up for breakfast and went tubing with the group Sunday morning?

    August 2, 2014

  • Theresa

    Will the tube run be the 4 hour run? Sounds like a great time.

    July 30, 2014

    • Rodney

      Yes. 3-4 hours of tubing.

    I found there are 4 motels there. I will meet all up there, as I am in Lake Mary. I assume we will meet at O'lean Springs State Park. See you then.

    If someone knows that a room will open - please let me know. But may camp - or go to Alaculla for a room.

    July 16, 2014

  • Rodney

    Ok. All the rooms I had reserved are now spoken for. If you want to make your own reservations, I suggest you hurry as they book up fast. The hotel is High Springs Country Inn.

    • Mary W.

      That would be good with me. I even still have your address in my GPS and this time I'll be there on time;)

    I see Tom can't make it - So then I can add my plus one, that I was hoping for - IF. :)

    Looks like the hotel is sold out. I just made a tent reservation at nearby High Springs Campground if anyone needs that alternative.

  • John B

    I did this back in college. I think I would like to add 1 when the time comes IF. ?
