We love this place. We took our 5-year-old daughter there and unlike most other springs the water gets deep gradually, so she could walk out up to her chest rather than automatically being in 8 feet or more water. The water is cold and refreshing,...More

I was last here 40 years ago as a young teen, when Dad brought the family here to paddle the stream he had visited when he was in college in the area. It hasn’t changed that much! The main difference is that the entire park...More

This spring is usually the least crowded. and almost never has a lifeguard. Its normally on the quiet side with some wildlife, birds, squirrels, and a pretty loop walk. Its nice to wade around. I like it.

The springs are pretty and worth seeing if you are in the area. If you aren’t swimming there isn’t much else to do unless you bring s book and relax by the water to read.
