Clear blue amazing water and everything clean, picnic and cooling off in the cool water. We are new to the area, and this is a VERY good place to recommend for relaxation

Prices to enter the park used to be $6.00/ car load. Now there is a day use fee per person. I believe Alexander Springs is $5.50 per per. How is a family supposed to afford this every weekend?

The water is crystal clear and excellent for a swim. Make sure you bring goggles to see under water. Before dipping yourself, walk the short path around the springs. There is also an extensive picnic area and campsite.

Our group of 8 women kayakers love this place. It is crystal clear and we often see turtles swimming underwater by our kayaks. Yes, there are gators all over, but we've been here many times and never felt threatened. Just be smart! This time there...More

This is an excellent campground if you want to experience a typical Florida forest and a first-magnitude freshwater spring. There is plenty to do here. The park offers hiking, swimming, canoeing/ kayaking, fishing and more. The campgrounds and staff are great. We camped over the...More

We stopped here on our way from Clearwater to Jacksonville on our return trip to NJ. Took a detour to come here, it only added about half an hour to the drive. The $5.50 per person charge is pricey, and it doesn't accept American the...More
