There is a beautiful boardwalk trail around the springs and you can rent a canoe to explore the crystal, clear river. It’s amazing how much water comes out of the ground here at a constant 72 degrees!  It’s beautiful!   The consistent temperature draws manatees up into the Florida springs during the winter months.

The campground has potable water and accessible restrooms, showers and boardwalks.  The entrance gate is closed at dusk until 8am.  If you will be arriving late, call ahead to get a gate code.
