  • You can draw enough water on the south side of the entrance to the run. Be mindful of the no wake. Its another approximate seven mile ride through the wilderness and a pleasant one at that...the sprin...  read more »
  • Had a nice stay at this campground. Very clean. If I am ever in the area again I will stay here again. 
  • This was so enjoyable! Beautiful scenery, the water is crystal clear all the way to the bottom so you can see absolutely everything. Large swimming area and nice picnic tables with grills. Would love ...  read more »
  • Nice campground that will allow you to get some out in the woods time in while in Florida. Situated in the middle of the Ocala NF it's not particularly close to anywhere. Bring groceries for your stay as there isn't anything available other than a small produce stand across the street. There is a nice ~1 mile trail right out of the campground, there is a boat dock for access to the river and of course the spring itself. There are lots of places to hike in the surrounding area including the Florida Trail. Verizon was 4G and usable for work but not rock star. We had no AT&T service. Only real negative was the ticks which plentiful.
  • My favorite swimming hole. Relaxing down to earth atmosphere. Remote. Family place. No party animals aside from the annoying boats anchoring in the spring run. Clean all around. Old Florida feel.
  • This is a national recreation area. The springs area is large and beautifully kept up. The adjacent campground is really great. Huge sites and plenty of access for the biggest rigs. Landscaping is beautiful and plenty of trails for exploring and bicycle rides. Full hookups on many sites and well suited for large groups, too.
  • I loved crystal clear cool water. everyone there was pretty laid back. the only thing is it wld be nice to have cell phone service but not nessisary if your going to be swimming anyway. we packed a picnic lunch and the kids loved it!
  • I enjoyed this campground. It was clean and well maintained. The spring was a lukewarm 72 degrees or so, but it was nice once you got used to it.
