Putnam County Florida

Whether you are seeking real Florida culture and heritage, recreation, or just relaxing in a small historic town, the residents and businesses welcome visitors.

Centrally located to most northern and central Florida attractions, Putnam County offers visitors a relaxing atmosphere with quality accommodations, natural attractions, historic sites and other activities that add to the complete Florida tour.

Because of our many fresh water resources, the St. Johns and Ocklawaha Rivers, Crescent Lake, Rodman Lake and Lake George, we are known for our prized largemouth black bass and native wildlife habitat viewing.

Our small towns have atmospheres that are inviting and celebrate our heritage. Putnam County takes great pride in its efforts to preserve Florida’s natural and historic areas, and welcomes visitors to learn about our local heritage.

Part of what makes Putnam County so unique is the quality of the natural and historic sites. We do ask that when you visit our natural areas that you only take pictures and leave only footprints, avoid contact with animals, and take advantage of using our knowledgeable guides. It is recommended that visitors share in our conservation efforts. Most of our attractions are public and free of charge. However, we do recommend that donations be planned for the continued operations and preservation of these attractions.
