    I knew that there were places with crystal clear water, but the few places I have been before was not deep enough and with ten people in the water kicking up the silt it was no longer clear by the tim...  more »

    Nice park. Easy walk. Great views. Crowded on summer weekends. Almost empty during late fall and winter but still beautiful.  more »

    A refreshing spring with cool water. Easy parking and transportation to river entrance. Float for about two hours and exit on a well built ramp. Very peaceful but can be very busy on the weekends. Best to go early and be in the water by 9:00 or 10:00. Can bring your own float our use theirs, same price.

    The 2 hour tube ride down the river is fun and relaxing. The recent price hike and way things are being handled, however, were quite disappointing. As of May 2017, it costs $5 just for entrance/parking, a new fee that is processed at a guardhouse near the entrance that leaves traffic backed up all the way out onto 484. The cost to tube down the river has also increased to $15 per person, regardless of group size or bringing your own tube. Overall, it's still a relaxing, enjoyable experience, but if you've been here before, be aware that things have changed this year.

    Beautiful place. Nice walking path. The water is clear and refreshing. Only down side. My 6ft tall husband and I couldn't touch the bottom.with our feet

    You can not pay your entrance fee with anything over a $20 and it's a nice walk back to the car so be prepared. Customer service doesn't exist here. Park itself is beautiful. We didn't bother to go get change and return. Went to KP Hole instead.

    Beautiful park and head spring! Very popular place. People come from all over the south to visit this park. If you want to avoid crowds and crave solitude, then avoid this spring. Holiday weekends such as Memorial Day and Labor Day are unbelievably crowded.
