  • We stopped here for a quick visit to explore possibilities for the next day. Beautiful Springs and the walk through the tropical forest area was very nice. We didn't get a chance to canoe the 7 mile c...  read more »
  • About 30-45 minutes East of Ocala is this beautiful little spring to go swimming in. Mind you, it can get a little chilly, 72 degrees chilly. There are plenty of walking trails and there is kayaking i...  read more »

  • Haven't been to these springs in years. It's very well maintained. You do need to be aware of the times you go. I'm sure the park has an occupancy limit. But it still seemed fairly crowded. Lots of places to set up your chairs and enjoy the sun and water. A lot of it is shaded. So best to pick the right spot and time early in the day if your looking for sun. It's a great spring. And it's great there is a sidewalk under water all the way around the edge of the pool so any kid that's at least 3ft tall can stand up in the water easily even right over the springs at the deep end.
  • I have fun every time I go. Just a word of caution, the staff is very serious about the upkeep of the park. Also the kayaking it's definitely for intermediate and not beginner kayakers. Someone experienced should be on the tandem kayaks for a more enjoyable experience. Gorgeous place.
  • Great place, would have loved kayaking down the river if I had not gotten stuck in the sand every 2 ft. But they gave me a full refund of the rental, so no complaints. The water in the swim area was nice a cool on a hot summer day
  • Nice, "old Florida" park. The spring pool itself is small, but pretty, with the waterwheel cabin right there. Nice boardwalk along the spring run that goes to a smaller spring that's very exotic, but, no swimming in that one (fern hammock). The snack shop was only open'till 1:00 the day we went.
  • It was a good place for family outings an BBQ's. Beautiful springs and Nature walks. Also alot of Pok√©mon Go stops and 3 gyms. For those interestedm
