Beautiful Rum Island Spring Is Right Next Door
Rum Island Retreat is located next door to Rum Island Park with free
access to the Santa Fe River and the beautiful, clear, freshwater
springs. It's your gateway to canoeing, boating, swimming, snorkeling,
fishing, sunning and more.
The park at Rum Island is free to all that wish to come
and swim, fish, boat, picnic. It is owned and maintained
by the Columbia County Parks and wildlife. During times of
flood, the park is closed. For information about park closures and other issues,
please call 386-719-7545.

Our river rental home is nestled in the woods
on a hill above the river. It's just a short walk down the path to the river and into the park.
