  • Great place for a day trip either with a pcinic or eating at the Old Spanish Sugar mill where you can cook it yourself on griddles built into the table. Park has magnificent huge live oaks and a natur...  more »

  • We love going here every couple of months. Very peaceful and what we really enjoy is visiting while we make our own pancakes.  more »

  • The dining experience was incredibly unique and fun while the waitstaff are very professional, nice, and stand ready to accommodate. The park grounds are beautifully kept. The water is very clear and very clean. Plenty of grass around the water to sunbathe and relax along with a playground area for toddlers. There are more than 5 miles (from what I could best tell) of nature trails with historical markers and nature fact plaques, informing you about the different trees and vegetation growing in the area. The park also offers rentals for kayaks and paddle boats, tickets for the Fountain of Youth riverboat tour, and accommodates fishermen. This park is a great way to spend an entire afternoon.
  • This is a nice clean park. Well maintained by the friendly staff there. It's a great place to relax around one of Florida's Springs and go for a swim. If you don't like swimming, there is a boat tour that gives you a little history of the water ways around the area (tickets are available at the Sugar Mill). Plenty of benches (and grassy spots) to picnic too!
  • Great place 2 take your family and friends Breakfast is fun 2 make on your table grill and the folks waiting on u are always smiling. Wonderful history+ the water is always72 and trips down the St. Johns River. A must see place!
  • Busy on weekends. Kids with squirt guns...lifeguards, and busy old grist mill where you can make your own pancakes. Not for the serenity seeking snorkeler on a warm Sunday afternoon. Interesting history here.
  • Totally worth coming in just for the pancakes. I'm sure there's more to explore here although I can't speak much to that respect. There is a beautiful fresh water spring in the middle where you can take a dip. I haven't taken a dip in it yet, but the water is crystal clear and I just might when I'm not full of pancakes & eggs.
