We really enjoyed the springs and restaurant. The history and the swimming area were great. The pancakes were also a treat. Very tasty and fun to make at your table. This is one of the fun old attractions to visit in Florida.

Awesome trip with the Del Webb singles - enjoyed the boat ride - saw several alligators - got some great pictures and I really liked the pancakes that we cooked on the griddle for brunch. My 2nd trip and I will definitely go back again.

The Springs make a wonderful natural water park. Picnic area available, as well as kayak rentals and boat rides. The restaurant food smells great, but it is very popular, and the wait list is very long...get there very early. Fun day to spend with family.

Such an interesting place with a great deal of history and natural beauty. This was our second visit to the park. Six dollars for a car load of us. A bargain! Don’t miss the Old Spanish Sugar Mill. A real treat!
