This beautiful spring is really a one-of-a-kind place. The park is very small with modern restrooms and a gift shop. The raft you ride to view the wonderful clear water is fun and relaxing. It all seems accessible to every family member. There are no hiking trails. It's all about the spring. Worth a quick stop.

This is always such a beautiful park and setting to come to and even with the crowds now is fun to take the ride across the river and see all the fish and wildlife on occasion . Nice gift shop also

This place is tiny, not well marked, but we were in the area an we had time to spare. However, this is the most beautiful thing we saw on our trip.

The spring is right near the parking lot so it's quick to walk to. You may have to wait in line, so try to go early, but many people fit on the "boat" at a time. It is worth it if you enjoy nature or trout viewing. The views are great and it's free!

This park is famous because of the Big Spring.
It's not the only attraction of this place.
Especially during the fall, when colors are changing. you have great opportunity to see so many beautiful spots with crazy-beauty colors. You can take many trails through the woods and you will be surrounded by the nature.
You have to pay the fee, but it's very "symbolic number".
I recommend this park.

We came on a beautiful weekend afternoon and the line was backed up almost to the bathrooms. We opted against waiting as the line didn't seem to move and people were packed together without masks. We did walk down to the springs to sneak a peak. We could get a glimpse of the clear water. Wish there were some way to walk around the springs or rangers were available with some information.

Long wait, but well worth it. Clear beautiful water defiantly like heavens mirror. The kids liked the big fish too.

This is an amazing place to visit and relax in the middle of virgin nature. The clear waters and the bird's songs will make your trip worthwhile.
