  • Great bathroom and changing facility. Nice, clear, brisk, spring water. Relatively small spring. Would like to see showers installed in restroom area and grass mowed back around picnic areas.
  • 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.
  • Great place, but keep your stuff near. They'll sure steal it here.
  • The water is great! A fun place to go swimming.
