I have been to wakulla springs in the past and the water was beautiful and crystal clear. Today it was such a nice day my girlfriend and I went kayaking on wakulla river, we put in on the bridge for 98 and went up to the park and back. From everything i had heard and the pictures i had seen the river was crystal clear just like in the park but today the water was brown and murky. So is the river usualy clear or murky? when can you expect the water to be murky like today TIA

The Spring originates from the cave opening inside the park by the dive tower.. That is where the water is most clear. As you go downstream the water gains color from trees, dirt, sand and plants. Also, the water tends to be most clear when it has not been stirred up by lots of boat traffic, or, after it rains.

Since it rained hard last night, the water was probably less clear than usual also.
