  • This is a wonderful place to cool off and swim in their springs. The water is freezing cold & beautiful as it is truly coming up untainted from the spring. So clear in fact that what you think is a few feet of water could be anywhere from 80-30 feet in a few spots.
  • Shhh! Don't tell anyone about this park. Amazing cabins, wrap a round porches and quiet. Nice walk to Suwannee river. Swimming hole. Lots of "old" Florida to see in the area. Coming back in the fall.
  • The water is great! A fun place to go swimming.
  • The cabins were beautiful. Just what we needed to get away from our hectic lives.
  • Remote and cozy. Great cabins. Swimming holes are tricky.
