The first-magnitude spring at this park produces an average of 100 million gallons of clear, cool water daily. In winter, West Indian manatees swim upriver to the warmer waters of the springs. Popular for snorkeling and scuba diving, the headwaters of the spring are also a great spot for swimming. The spring run forms a sparkling stream that meanders through hardwood wetlands to the Suwannee River. Canoe and kayaks can be rented May through September. Hiking and bicycling are available on the north-end trail system. The full-facility campground is surrounded by red oak woods, and the wooden boardwalk travels through huge Cypress Trees on its way to the Suwannee River.
