The area designated as the southeast region encompasses portions of Levy, Gilchrist, Columbia, Alachua, Union and Bradford County. The westernmost boundary for this region follows the Lower Suwannee, Santa Fe, and Wacasassa rivers. They each flow southerly through the southeast region to the Gulf of Mexico.
Within the tracts owned and managed by the District, the region offers opportunities to bicycle, fish, hike, horseback ride, hunt, and view wildlife. The Lower Suwannee and Lower Santa Fe rivers provide excellent boating opportunities while the Upper Santa Fe and Lower Wacasassa rivers provide excellent paddling.
All the rivers have a number of springs that flow with an abundance of crystal clear water into the rivers.
