This place gets crowded - go early! We arrived around 9:30am to set our kayaks in the water and there were only a few other cars, by the time we came back after noon the parking lot was packed. There are bathrooms, picnic tables, shade, an outdoor shower by the kayak launch, and a swimming area. Lots of families enjoying... More

We used Hunter Spring Park as a launch site for kayaking, the park was very nice with clean restrooms and convenient showers. It also have places close to the launch to load/unload your boat. The park is free. We also arrived before the park opened on Sunday and were loading up to leave when a park employee came to empty... More

Such a treasure, so close by. When I moved here 19 years ago, I didn't realise what a gem of a recreation spot we have here so close to town. Now, I take my company there.

This was an exciting place for all ages. Crystal Clear cold springs was refreshing. They had plenty of room and the park has many places with picnic area's for families. Police was on site. Boater's were near but not allowed on the shore where you swim. Good place to see Manatee's.

Nice little park for swimming, snorkeling, and picnics. There are steps to the water, spaces to lounge on your towel, and pavilions - plus reasonable restrooms and a public launch for kayaks/canoes. Its only a 20-30 minute paddle to Three Sister Springs. Can be very busy, especially on weekends and holidays - parking may be a challenge. A manatee spotting... More

Beautiful springs & small private beach/picnic area- great for families with smaller children. About a 30 minute paddle to Three Sisters Springs ( 45 if your paddle pace is leisurely )

We stopped here after half a day scalloping. Great place to wash off the salt water. Easy access. Clea. Spring water. Boats going right by. Lots of people, but all were well behaved. We spent an enjoyable two hours here.

The park is small, the beach area is small but the water is crystal clear and it is right on a spring.

Beautiful, peaceful park in downtown Crystal River. Launch a kayak or paddle board. Swim on small sandy beach area, picnic and BBQ area under pavilions. Well kept and clean restrooms. Ample safe parking. Good day out.

Good family fun! Kayak launch to paddle around springs or go out around Pete's Peir and head to Three Sisters Springs. Now that's a breath taking sight.
