  • This is beet first state park we visited and we are in love. Invigorating experience on calmly flowing springs water. The flora and fauna that impossible to get enough, so spiritual to be part of this tranquil place. Highly recommend. Stunning hikes and the pool area so clean that too I can see over 10’ deep. Fish under water can be seen as well as birds, turtles and alligators that are peacefully resting on the banks of the river. Simply breathtaking. Please try this truly nature’s retreat.
  • Beautiful natural spring water, the hike is a bit long but it is worth it! Place is full with wild life and tall trees! Got to meet a bunch of nice local people, did not have any issue since arriving to the location and leaving! I would recommend this place to friends family or anyone who would ask me! And thanks to the people who keep the place clean and nice for us to enjoy!!
