  • This park has an on-site boat tour (additional cost), and a restaurant. Take a dip in the nice cool spring on a hot summer day. 
  • While visiting family in Ormond Beach, they took me to this beautiful State Park. The area is breathtaking !! Be sure to come early and visit the restaurant where you cook you own pancakes on a grill ...  more »
  • DON'T make this a destination to spend the day unless you are local- it gets crowded fast and isn't large, but it's the perfect place to make a two hour tourist stop as we did. My son loved it and he ...  more »

  • One of my favorite springs to visit. This is one of the cleanest springs. Park appears well maintained and the trails are always enjoyable. The water is so beautiful and fun to snorkel. Walking the wooded trails is a short easy hike with plenty to see. Parking can be tough on busier days, but I can't really blame everyone for wanting to visit!
  • Need a little refreshing/cleansing swim? Well look no further. This park is not only beautifully kept but a pristine example of a cold spring head at work. The water is cold and clear and the swimming hole has been modernized to keep the area easy to maintain. Nature trails offer an opportunity to warm up and it's also fun to walk the steam that flows from the main swimming area. The park also includes picnic tables, grills and a bath house.
  • So beautiful! (And cold) breathtaking scenery, lovely shaded trails, swimming in beautiful clear spring fed water, (did I mention it's COLD! ?) NO better way to beat the heat! If you're near this gem while traveling, make the stop, it's totally worth it.
  • This place is beautiful! Nice outdoor nature trails, crystal clear cold water, pic nic tables, pavillions, grills, and many more. Very nice ranger was very nice and playful with kids. Bathrooms are available and a shower outside to rince off. It has a big area to swim and nice creek with flowing water..
  • Beautiful park to spend a day excersing, relaxing, spending a day with the kids. Clean and well kept.
