Bring your snorkeling gear and pool floats for lounging in the cool 70 degree water. Florida at its finest. Weekdays are best as locals crowd it on weekends. Morning swim then Odd Todd's Tacos for..... more »
This was a wonderful spring for swimming and snorkeling. Very shallow so great for children. There wasn't a single spot in the springs where I couldn't touch the bottom. Not a lot of fish but we did..... more »
I love Salt Springs. I often drive (1.5 hours) there on weekdays and try to get there around 4pm. It’s a ghost town and so amazing to feel like you have the springs all by yourself. As long as you have the right straps you can hang a hammock and just chill. Plenty of picnic tables, each one having a grill. They have nice bathrooms as well. I totally love it. I’ve seen an otter the last 3 visits, and every time see blue crabs, and beautiful fish swimming around. Crystal clear water and more than half of it is shallow enough to stand, with the water coming up to knees or belly depending on tides.
What a great campground! Easy biking to the Springs and around the park. The bathrooms were spotless and the hosts were nice. The springs themselves are the real jewel and are clear, cold and refreshing. Camp store has awesome floats if you forget yours! Have fun!
