Jungle Den and the Old Ice House ~ St. Johns River, Astor, FL


This is the old Ice House August 9th, 2020. It's where the Crabbers and Fishermen brought their fresh catches of the day to be iced down and shipped back out by boat. We think it was possibly built in the 1930's or 40's.

 September 5, 2022, it's starting to look a bit rough.


This is Jungle Den August 9, 2020. It had a thriving restaurant until 2004 when Hurricanes Charlie, Francis, Ivan and Jeanne hit. The St Johns River flooded into the restaurant and it never reopened. The hotel and boat ramp continued to be used for several years after that though.
