  • Beautiful spring, convenient well equiped camp store, close to hiking trails and well maintained camp sites. We've camped here several times and it's one of our favorite Florida campgrounds. There are many secluded sites to pick from, and a very friendly helpful staff to answer any questions you may have. There are no electric sites but water spigots are plentiful and the restrooms are clean.
  • The grounds are Well kept, Clean and loads of fun. We got there at nine in the morning and had the spring almost to our selves. By noon the spring was crowded yet still has space to spread out. The walking trail along the spring was both beautiful and informative. There were plenty of picnic table and BBQ pits. Bathroom were clean and the mini store on site was well stocked with food items and things you might need at the spring. The spring rangers were friends and helpful. No life guards on site. No glass bottles are allowed and no alcohol. Your coolers will be asked to be open for a search. It was a great day. The kids loved it. Go, pack good and drink. Bring your chairs and blankets and sit under the beautiful canopy of trees that have been there looking over bathers over the years.
