“Do you REALLY want to COOL OFF?”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

Ok, you asked for it - 68 degree water no matter how hot it is outside! This is a beautiful fresh water spring that will make you feel invigorated, even if it isn't the fountain of youth. Bring a picnic, cooler of drinks, some chairs, towels, water toys, and spend the day playing outside and in the beautiful clear water and sand-bed stream flowing from it. Some in our group said it was too cold, others floated and dived into it for hours. You can put your chair in the stream with your feet in the refreshing water. The whole area is almost totally shaded by huge trees, and there is a volleyball net, nature trail, and several covered picnic areas with grills available to reserve. I asked and nobody got any bug bites. About an hour north of any beach from Destin to PCB. Very inexpensive ($4 per car) and worth the trip!
