Rather small area and the spring has been encircled with a walkway so it's not very natural looking. The park is not very large but do yourself a favor and cook yourself some pancakes right at your table at the Spanish Sugar Mill there.

The park reminds me a a resort area from a study movie. It is worth going to. It cost $6 to get in the park. It is well worth all the fun you can have.

Interesting to learn about the huge underground aquifer which formed the Deleon Springs. Huge 72 degree pool, nature walks, picnic area and the Old Sugar Mill restaurant where you can make your own pancakes and french toast. Really a great place for families. In addition,...More

No. But there are in the river. They gave a physical bridge that separates the spring from the river. On the river side people fish, you may see an otter and cottonmouth. But spring Side, no fish
