Hubby and I spent a few hours here just relaxing near the water and hubby tried snorkeling some. There were no manatees at this time, but he saw some fish. I watch the White Ibis and lots of ducks that were in the water and parking lot. It was clean and there were some other families swimming.

It is a nice park for families with little children. Just make sure you brink your own food and drinks. It was very busy at Saturday afternoon. A lot of people swimming. Nothing that looks like nature.

This is a small park with swimming access to the springs. The water is very clear. There was no one there when we went on a Monday.

This is a small city park with several picnic areas, BBQ areas, and some swimming. The actual spring is only about 75 ft offshore and you can actually swim out to see the spring. Above the spring the water is crystal clear and you can swim down to the actual spring opening at about 15ft deep. I love to snorkel... More

Free to visit, good place to park and enjoy the water. If you own your own kayak/canoe this is a great place to put in and tour the King's Bay attractions

02/08/2015- swam with the Manatee yesterday ! Air temp 74 degrees, little breezy so it was cold when you get out to the water. Amazing number of Manatee in the county, your sure to see several if you visit in the next couple months. You can swim/snorkel from the park- I recommend taking a noodle in case you need to... More

Nice place to launch the kayak right next to a manatee pool. But no pets allowed. Most of the park is a parking lot. There are no facilities there but there is also no admission.

We took a ride and checked this place out for our next trip. It is a small area and I have heard you need to get there early to beat the crowds but it looks like a nice and easy access to launch your kayak into the Crystal River and head out toward the springs.
