  • We visited during the winter off season and it was absolutely amazing! There were barely any others visiting, so the river was quiet and pristine. We saw lots of wildlife, including birds, turtles, and even some manatees (they frequent the area upriver of Midpoint). Note that they don’t allow you to bring any disposable items (snacks, bottled water) so make sure to bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated. Definitely recommend for all ages and levels of experience. We were in a party of 8 with both adults and pre-teen/teenage children, with little experience kayaking, and it was awesome.
  • What an amazing place. Water is so blue and perfect. Everyone had the best time. We decided to walk to the drop off place instead of paying 7.50 a piece for the shuttle and it really wasn't that bad. A 25 minute walk both ways but if you need the shuttle it is pretty nice to have I bet. But our teenagers can truck it. We will be back. It was a wonderful experience for sure.
  • Another beautiful Flordia Spring! Parking is ample. Divers spray off area. Food area, concession- burgers, hotdogs, etc.. pretty pricey however. (They were closed when we came later in the afternoon) Nicer walkway to the spring. Bring a mask or goggles, you can see the spring opening in the far left corner. The force from the water output will push you away. Beautiful inside and outside of the crystal clear water. Very cold!
  • May 13, 2022 a Friday. It was a perfect day with little people traffic. We floated down twice. So peaceful...you heard the birds and just a little talk ftom the people ahead. Water temp was nice-- not too cold like we expected. Highly recommend! Just be sure to spray down with sunscreen and bring water in an aluminum or reusable container. NOT allowed to have disposable containers NOR food on the water!!!! There is a small restaurant that serves burgers dogs, chicken sandwich, fries, sodas at a fair price. Enjoy🙂
  • Incredible park. Only got to visit the south end during this visit but it's amazing. The second 1.5 miles of the river and surrounding area are completely geared towards tubing, and sits at #1 for tubing destinations in Florida I've been to. Will definitely go back with our paddle boards to experience the first mile and a half the the river and the springs.
