It's cool to see the super clear green/blue water and large fish, but I would not go out of my way for this stop. State park passport required for entry. If yoiu don't already have one, DON'T pay to go here.

During the fall season we make our way up to this spot every year. Most years it is a joy (get there early). The water color is amazing, seeing the fish and the gallons of water bubbling up from the floor of the spring is actually quite something as well. This year there was a problem with the people who took the little ferry boat to the middle taking a VERY long time to return. People were leaving the line to board next it was so very bad. I don't know what the answer is for other's rudeness, but I hope one can be found.

Love this so pretty and relaxing try your hand at driving across the lake and look through the glass bottom to see the springs bubbling in the bottom and the huge fish so relaxing the only bad thing was restrooms were closed and the porta potties were very bad

Lovely little park and spring, as you’ve read in the other reviews. But why does the state think closing the restrooms with running water, forcing guests to use dirty outhouses with no hand sanitizer or toilet paper is good public health. Plus lots of self absorbed folks with no sense of social distancing (and very few masks) made us bail before getting on the raft. Also appeared several folks with large dogs intended to board with them. Sigh . . . We’ll be back when things return to normal.

Took a detour to see this on our way to pictured rock, definitely worth the trip! It was a short little stop with some incredible views, and unbelievable how clear the water was. We only stayed for about 45min-1 hour as there isn’t a lot there and the spring is small. Would recommend the stop if you have time!
