Nearby Ponce de Leon Springs State Park was closed due to a storm and trees down, so the Ranger recommended two nearby springs. We chose Morrison, which is owned and operated by Walton County and doesn't allow alcohol. It is a family place with clear,...More

Park is beautiful and well maintained. Water level is still a bit high with only a small beach exposed. A few families around. Spring is still not visible due to tannic water. Looks like it may take another few weeks before SCUBA diving again.

The dive shop at Vortex Springs recommended we try this spring. It is free to dive here and just a few miles down the road. You can drive up and unload your gear fairly close to the water. Like Vortex Springs the water was really...More

Not sure if we came at the most horrible time or what, but the whole place looked flooded and the water was brown. There were covered picnic table areas, but we weren't about to stay there with Ponce and Vortex down the road.

This is a gorgeous natural spring that is now managed by Walton County. They have done a beautiful job making renovations and improvements including adding a wheelchair-accessible boardwalk and a boat ramp away from the diving dock. Best of all, there are NO entry fees....More

Very nice, small beach area. Picnic tables available. And all for free. Divers love it! Great for a picnic, lay out in the sun, and a dip in the water. The water is pretty cold, but super clear moat of the time!

I love visiting different springs with my family; this is probably our 5th spring. At Morrison there are nice bath houses near the parking lot, a tiny little beach, and a long boardwalk leading to a floating dock where it's perfect to jump in. A...More

Seems like a nice adventure especially in warmer days and clearer water. My husband and I were out for a drive and ended up there. I found it on google maps. We will definitely go back in the spring.

It is FREE...there is no cost whatsoever. The park operates from sunrise to sunset. It is located at 874 Morrison Springs Rd, Ponce De Leon, FL, which is off of FL-81 S.
