  • This county park is home to Rock Springs Run. The spring flows out of a cave into a small pool from which it flows through a rocky ravine a few hundred yards or so to a larger pool. The cave is...

  • I love this place, we all want to go back. We were going to stay only 4 hrs but we stayed 8 😆 Very pleasant visit. We used goggles so we were able to explore under water. My children had a blast. Please keep in mind this is a family oriented, do not bring alcohol into the park or you'll have to throw it away. I notice someone did and made them empty the cans. But you can have fun without all that. There is a concession stand. Bathrooms and outside showers. Bring your tube and goggles oh don't forget swimmers shoes there's quite a few rocks. But it's all fun.
  • This place is gorgeous and great fun for all ages. You can tube, snorkel or swim! Just be very careful of very slippery rocks. Sometimes you don’t realize there is algae growing on them, below the surface and it is slicker than ice. You can also get ticks from the trails, plus biting flies. Keep in mind to put Deepwoods off on when you’re not in the water. When you’re in the water, keep in mind that stagnant areas with algae growth may have tiny leeches. Don’t let this scare you. I’ve gone to many, many Florida springs and have only experienced this twice. I would give it a full five stars if it wasn't for the overcrowding during the summer and holidays. There are so many people there at those times, it really takes away from the natural feel. People tend to blast their stereos and get rowdy. However, if you can come on a weekday, off-season, it's a tropical paradise! Remember to rent your tubes before entering - the park doesn't rent them out. There's a dive bar/restaurant right around the corner that rents them for very reasonable.
