  • 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
  • Nestled in between multiple Springs and the Suwannee River. By far the best camping experience I've ever had!
  • 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!
  • Really nice cabins within walking distance to springs and Suwannee River.. Tons on birds. Geocaching nearby.
  • It's a nice place but for swimming Madison blue springs is bigger and better
