I was looking for something more 'natural' to do on a three week break to Orlando and took a bit of a gamble dragging my family here by 8am one morning. It was amazing, renting a kayak at that time - there is no one around, paddling sedately down rivers where you feel that you've gone back in time to... More

They let too many people into the spring at one time. So many that the water doesn't stay as cold as it should be naturally.

The natural springs can be very crowded but it is well worth the $6 per car load to get in you can have up to 8 people in your car. Be sure to get there early like the website says or you will have a way to get in it least during the summer. Plan on spending a good part... More

And while you are in the area don't miss Kelly Park in Apopka. Two great examples of the real Florida.

Beautiful relaxing state park with naturally fed springs you can swim in. I went for a dip, cool but refreshing on a hot day, with a slight current. Some nice trails around if you want to escape when it gets busy. There are signs saying "Alligators may be present", but that is just to make you aware- we saw none,... More

This is one of the hidden treasures in the Orlando area. We camped here for 5 days and are going back again in another month for 5 more. The camp sites are wide and very accommodating. Deer all over the place along with turkey, gopher tortoises, and other wild life. The spring is crowded during the summer months so we... More

We stayed at the campground, which was lovely and relaxing. The campsite (39) was good size, with lots of shade. There are several nice trails, and we saw some deer and wild turkey. The springs although beautiful were not as relaxing, with wall to wall people. It's so shallow, it's like a big kiddie pool. In the mornings there is... More

Because we stayed at the Hampton Inn Apopka, we were able to enjoy this park. If visiting during the summer weekend the park reaches capacity in the late morning and does not allow more guests to enter. Unfortunately, we met with this problem but were able to go to the hotel, less than 10 minutes enjoy the pool. We returned... More
