  • The color of the water is stunning, beautiful. Next time we are there will be time to rent kayaks or a canoe. Great park to walk and see the waterfalls too.  more »
  • We were too late to rent a tube and go down the river, so the lady at KP Hole suggested we visit the park. OMG. The water looks like you are in the Caribbean, and it is fresh, spring water. It made it...  more »
  • The only reason I gave this a 4 star review is because of how clear and beautiful the water is. We didn't spend much time at the park though so I can't comment on much. The swimming section was very c...  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.
