I had not been camping in over 25 years, but I wanted to experience it again and with my 5 year old daughter. I just got back, and although it was very cold, it was GREAT! The grounds were excellently maintained! Staff was very friendly... canoeing was amazing! Springs were chilly, but gorgeous! The trails were beautiful! I can't wait... More

We drove 4 hours to come to a place where we thought we'd experience at least a minimum of peace and quiet. After all, isn't that why people come to a national forest for tent-camping? To our surprise, instead, we found ourselves in the midst of a White Trash Trailer Park Dance Party on both nights we were there. The... More

We camped here Halloween weekend. The campgrounds are very clean and we'll kept. The staff was all very kind and helpful. The weekend we stayed there was an extreme amount of bear activity. We did follow every rule and had all food and toiletries locked in the vehicles. This did not deter one rambunctious bear. He seemed curious but in... More

2 things you really need to be aware of when camping here. Bears are rampant but will not bother you if you keep your stuff contained. We had neighbors who tried to put their coolers underneath the chair part of a picnic table and the bear easily moved the table and commenced on opening the cooler from the opposite side.... More

After exploring the many springs of Florida, my family and I agree that Juniper Springs is one of the best we have seen. Very well kept and full of nature. We did not camp or kayak/canoe the spring run we came for the swimming. And it was a wonderful experience. Kids loved it! The water is always 72 degrees but... More

My family drive directly here after enjoying the morning at Silver Springs. We were NOT disappointed! We had so much fun swimming in the spring area, and doing some exploring around. We took turns filming one another with a GoPro so now have memories to enjoy over and over again.

Have been down run close to a dozen times but has been over ten years since last trip. River has become very over grown with low lying branches, briars downed trees. Spent much of trip ducking. Was told Forrest service does not permit much in way of clearing. Still beautiful and worth the trip but can be a lot of... More

The kayaking is so much better than I expected. I would say that this is not a kayaking trip for a first timer though. Some of the twists and turns were a little challenging. The water was amazing! If you are scared of being close to alligators you may not want to go on this trip. We saw a handful... More

Juniper Springs was a pleasant place for a week of tent camping during mid February 2014. The camp sites had some vegetation between them which was nice. I stayed in the loop closest to the road and did experience road noise. The bathrooms were clean. There was no host which I didn't miss until loud partiers arrived Friday night. They... More
