Novel place to go

Interesting boat trip, nice park, good swimming area and a wonderful little restaurant where you cook your own pancakes at the table. Thoroughly enjoyable day out

This park has an on-site boat tour (additional cost), and a restaurant. Take a dip in the nice cool spring on a hot summer day.

While visiting family in Ormond Beach, they took me to this beautiful State Park. The area is breathtaking !! Be sure to come early and visit the restaurant where you cook you own pancakes on a grill built into the table. Service is great, and the experience is one I'll never forget.

DON'T make this a destination to spend the day unless you are local- it gets crowded fast and isn't large, but it's the perfect place to make a two hour tourist stop as we did. My son loved it and he yelled 'COLD COLD COLD' and then he was good to go as he jumped in. Clean bathrooms are easily... More

I live about 2 hours away and we make several trips a year. It's a cheap affordable place to visit to cool off when it's a 100+ outside. The bathhouse is kept really clean and is spacious and not a far walk to the spring at all. Definitely get there as early as possible, it tends to fill up fast... More

We decided to branch out of our local area and try some of the springs that were in driving distance from our home. This spring is truly lovely and if you go during the week not crowded at all! The "pool" is very large and deep. There is a diving platform and a great stair area for both the: "I... More

this is a beautiful natural spring. Very cold water for swimming. No camping or fishing but really nice for a birthday or family get together. They have pavilions with grills and volleyball court. It does cost to get in. I believe it is $6.00 per car load. Rather small park which can be intimate on the off season and very... More

We went on a Saturday. The water is beautiful to look at. It is chili when you first get it, but I recommend just going under the water. Just shock your system and get it over with. We saw tons of fish a little turtle movement. There were quite a few people at the park so the turtles decided to... More

This was a really neat place. We were there for a birthday party and young and old alike had a great time. The water felt great on that hot summer day. Some of us played volleyball. We will definitely be going back.

Easy stop to take a break on way to the beach. Arrived on a Thursday afternoon. Not crowded and easy to change in bath houses. Water was cold and clear. It was a hot day so if felt good and refreshing. We walked the trail and stayed maybe 90 minutes.
