Manatee Springs is a wonderful escape from these hot summer days. Swimming is available year round, come try the waters of this fountain of youth! The constant 72 degrees of Manatee Springs blue waters always provide a refreshing experience. Manatee Springs is a place to escape from technology! Cell phones and satellite dishes have limited to no use here in this river bottomland area. Take advantage of this opportunity to reduce stress and experience nature. Relax..Renew, Re-create yourself!

Over 100 million gallons of water gush forth daily at Manatee Springs. The spring run forms a sparkling stream that meanders through hardwood wetlands to the Suwannee River. A concession provides beverages and snacks. Located at the end of State Road 320, off U.S. 98, six miles west of Chiefland.

Admission Fee - $6.00 per vehicle (up to 8 people).
