  • This place is awesome I always love coming here great cabins and excellent place to swim
  • Loved the cabin we were in. Bring you own pillows though, theirs are weird. Spring was beautiful and you could actually see some stars at night. Don't expect wifi or a cell signal though. I also suggest bringing essentials and food. The nearest town with publix, Walgreens etc is about 40 min away.
  • We finished a 50 mile canoe trip with a Boyscout troop and the park was excellent, very clean, and the Ranger was very accommodating. Thx Lew Troop 121.
  • This is a very nice park and spring with excellent facilities.
  • Very nice place to launch a boat and to swim or relax.
