Walker Springs
Walker Springs
Walker Springs is one of the most outstanding small riverfront recreational hunting properties in North Florida. This is classic “old Florida” and one of the largest springs still in private hands in the region. Flowing at almost 1 million gallons a day, the spring creek oxbows through the park like hardwoods for over ¼ mile. The Cracker Style riverfront cabin is one of the few “grandfathered” cabins still remaining on the Aucilla. Its ½ mile of river frontage is pristine with a private river trail and rapids. It is one of the last privately held properties on the Aucilla River. It is bordered on two sides by SRWMD lands that control over 80% of the land from here to the Gulf of Mexico. The game flow here of deer, turkey, and hogs is incredible. Ted Turner’s Avalon Plantation is two properties to the north.
