Prices to enter the park used to be $6.00/ car load. Now there is a day use fee per person. I believe Alexander Springs is $5.50 per per. How is a family supposed to afford this every weekend?

The water is crystal clear and excellent for a swim. Make sure you bring goggles to see under water. Before dipping yourself, walk the short path around the springs. There is also an extensive picnic area and campsite.
