  • Beautiful springs with completely clear waters all the way to the bottom. The park has done great with steps and railing down to the water at several spots and even a concrete diving rock. When you're done there's a spot to rinse off and there is also restrooms to change etc. We stopped here on the way home from our vacation in PCB and were not disappointed. Well worth the $4 per car fee. We will definitely remember to stop by next time we head down to the beach.
  • beautiful place with crystal clear water that is about 68 degrees year round. kid friendly but also relaxing and fun for adults. entrance fee was three dollars. outdoor barbecue pits, bathrooms are cleaned at least every three hrs, lots of green space. you can reserve pavilions. there are posted warnings about alligators and bears. thankfully i saw neither on this visit. my five friends and I spent six hours there and had a great time.
  • I've been to a couple of Florida springs and this one is big and beautiful. It's a awesome deal at $4 per car load. The water is crystal clear and is a year around 68f. The park has a few picnic areas and lots of benches to enjoy the spring and wildlife. I will definitely be going back!
  • This place was peaceful and beautiful. I would love to have been able to swim in the spring fed pool. It was too cold that day for me. I got some great pictures though .
  • This place is beautiful! The swimming hole is crystal clear. The water itself is pretty chilly because it is freshwater afterall. The park isn't too busy, and there are trails, campsites, and BBQ places to enjoy by yourself or with a larger group.
