My friends and family loved swimming at the Springs! There is a cave to swim through if you're brave enough. The current will carry you over rocks and sand but it's quite rough on the body. The sand, ... more »
We got so lucky getting a cabin at this beautiful park for one night. Right on the Suwannee River. And an amazing natural spring that provides a wonderful swimming area. BEAUTIFUL! And quite empty...w... more »
Remote and cozy. Great cabins. Swimming holes are tricky.
Nestled in between multiple Springs and the Suwannee River. By far the best camping experience I've ever had! No RV's no running generators, really a peaceful place.
This spring is really small, but so much fun! There is a small cave in which you can swim under a crossing rock bridge. The cave is fully submerged in water 12' wide and about 2.5' high. I swam through without goggles with no problem. I love that at the end where the spring water begins to meet the river, there is a bottleneck point where the current speeds up. You can literally swim in the same point forever. I would swim more if this was near me. The only negative I have is that too many people that were there smoked and you can't escape it. It's counterintuitive to relax in natural healing spring waters while smoking. #travelwithchavis
A hidden treasure. Be sure to hike the North side.
Seen owls, birds, turtles, natural rock & tree formations....went tubing 45 min down the road at Okeechoknee...snorkeling in clear, spring water...bring the bikes...food, clothes and you're ready to enjoy the outdoors at its finest! Cabins are stocked with all but personal stuff and food/drinks, we had low country one night, grilled the next! Will be back again!
