  • I wanted to see this place for quite some time and never got to until my family came over to visit from overseas. It was gorgeous! We went on a Thursday (early November) and had the park almost entire...  more »
  • Off the beaten track, but worth it. Crystal clear water is no exaggeration - it is amazing how far you can see. Smallish designated swimming area, but easy access and facilities. Dive in, snorkel or j...  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.
