  • Loved it. Such a beautiful spring. And cold all year round. Beautiful to spend the day at. Little hikes and it only costs a little to get in, very clean, looks like something out of a movie. Found this after going to Falling Waters State Park. Florida has some great natural areas. Just wanted to make a day out of it and I'm glad we stopped here.
  • Great stop! Just seconds off of I10... walk the little trail to the end where the clean clear water empties into the "stained" water of an adjacent creek. Can be one of those life lesson teaching moments...
  • I love this place. It's a small little park/ picnic area . there's a nice path through the woods . there's also a spring fed pool and a waterfall under the bridge and you can swim on either side. It's clear so you can see all the ey to the bottom and it's not very deep anywhere so it's safe for children too.
  • Beautiful clear water and wildlife. Bring your grilling stuff they have grills in the park you can use. It's a nice cool swim, feels warmer the longer you're in it.
  • My favorite swim area. Very busy on weekends and holidays during the summer, so plan ahead. Weekdays are the best time. Beautiful area with refreshing cool water.
