A beautiful place to spend some quality time, go for a boat tour on the river, or just be close to nature on the walking trails. You can see the park in less than half a day. Crowded in summer due to swimming. Go when it first opens. Being a local I love to wait until the cool/cold weather and... More

We spent four nights in the campground. The spots are nice with water and electric. There is a dump station to use before you hit the road. We brought our kayaks and launched from the park kayak launch. The spring is very cool. The water is so clear it a bit chilly. It wasn't manatee season but we did see... More

The cabin was two bedrooms with a full kitchen, bath, gas fireplace in cool weather, a/c, screen porch with rocking chairs and a table, an outside table with a firepit, $95.00 per night. The swimming area, spring run, and tubing, is a little... More

We stopped through to enjoy the cold springs on our way to Orlando. We have been to hot springs in other places, but this was our first cold springs experience and was great on a hot morning. We arrived mid-morning and we were one of the last cars allowed in. The fee of $6 was super affordable. We stayed for... More

Cost $6.00 per car, bring a lunch, or you can eat at the lunch counter there off the boardwalk. It's small, not much to do, unless you like swimming but living local it's a nice afternoon with the kids. Boat tours, guided tours and of course the matinees.

When we went swimming someone decided to take 1 of our tables (we had 2). Gave them the bad looks long enough they gave it back and left somewhere else. I am going back in the winter to... More

Our summer of springs visits brought us here with a 4 and 6 year old boys. Entry cost was great at $6.00 a car load up to eight people. Lots of picnic tables but need to arrive early as they go fast. Park was clean with a small store and tube rentals were a bit pricey at $5.00 1st hour... More
