Fanning Springs is one of many of Florida's gorgeous springs along the Suwannee River. Manatees come into the warm water near the Spring on cold winter nights and this was so when we were there. The water is crystal clear. One thing about it that...More

Right on the banks of the Suwanee River, offers river fishing and swimming in the springs. Something for every member of your family or group! Classic Florida with Spanish moss and live oaks.

We stayed in one of the cabins at the park and was very pleasantly surprised at the accommodations. Clean, attractive, fully equipped. It even had a fireplace (electric, but still added to the ambiance), screened wrap-around porch, linens included. In the morning, we would walk...More

Absolutely beautiful stop. Crystal clear. Wonderful family place. Great at any age and water is accessible to anyone in any condition. The boardwalk is just as wonderful as the spring. It will bring you to one huge (actually two that became one) bald cypress. The...More

Large swimming area. You have to sit on a dock like area. Space is limited on a crowded day. So keep this in mind if you have small children. No shallow area to swim. The spring head was very beautiful to swim over. Water very...More

We've swam in this spring several times in the past when passing through this area and decided to take another quick dip in the springs to cool off on a steamy summer day (prior to the afternoon showers). To cool off in a beautiful spring...More

We stopped by while beginning our vacation. It is a little small, but not crowded. Beautiful springs and a comfortable experience. We will probably be going again next time through the area.

The water stays a constant 72 year round, so that depends on you. We went to Silver Glen Springs yesterday and snorkled - no wet suits. We were good until we got out.
