The park has ample hiking and camping facilities, but my favorite attraction is the spring itself. The water is always crystal clear and refreshing. The spring is at the bottom of a basin, several hundred feet from the parking lots. It is well kept up by the Parks Dept. with easy access that includes concrete stairs and boardwalks. They have...

This place is great. It is not for people that love disney or all the other overpriced, overcrowded, theme parks. I do reccomend going in the off season though, in the middle of the week.

A great day out at the natural springs spent swimming and picnicking with lots of wildlife and lovely surroundings. This is a great place to unwind and chill out. Plenty of slow paced things to do or for the more adventurous, there are plenty of more energetic things as well like canoeing, cycling, horse riding etc. Well worth the drive... More

Enjoyed a day a picnicking, swimming, and kayaking. We attempted to snorkel over the hole with little luck. The amount of people was overwhelming, and sediment made it difficult to see much if anything. Kayaking on the other hand was nice! We rented 2 two person kayaks and had a very nice time. One of my sons fished from the... More

My wife and I stayed for a night of camping and were very pleased! Since we arrived approximately an hour early for our check-in time, the ranger (not the friendliest) requested we sit in the registration office until it could be verified that the campsite was vacated. I found this odd that we weren't even allowed to wait by the... More

Awesome place, nice and quiet woodsy setting. Crystal clear cool waters, for every age in the family. Take a break from the amusement parks & the beach and relax at the Springs.

This state park is so beautifu! We rented 3 kayaks and explored the area. To rent the kayaks was $20 per kayak, which is pretty reasonable. We saw alligators, turtles and all sorts of birds. We also took advantage of the springs and went swimming. Park Rangers are very well aware of boaters staying in their kayaks. While we were... More

Thank God for the state parks system or this would just be another subdivision. Riding through all the rows of tiny little boxes to get here, I thought I was in the wrong place. Once you enter the park it's a whole new world. Beautiful, serene, natural Florida. I arrived at 8am when the park just opened. Paid my $4... More

The springs are amazing. Clear, crisp, and most importantly alligator free. Even though the bottom is mostly sand, I would recommend bringing some water shoes because the actual springs are set in a rocky area and the rocks are slippery with moss or something. Also, you will want to bring goggles and perhaps a snorkel to get a good view.... More
