What we're about

Home of one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the world, this park plays host to an abundance of wildlife which includes alligators, turtles, manatees, deer, and birds. Daily guided riverboat tours provide a closer view of wildlife and are perfect for the wildlife photographer. Fall, winter and spring are the best times to enjoy the nature trails where visitors walk beside remarkable karst features and among rare and unusual plants in its old-growth forests.

Throughout the year special ranger-led activities are offered to our guests. These activities include interpretive nature hikes, bike rides and historical presentations.

Make it a point to secure dinner reservations [masked]) in the grand dining room of the lodge following the presentation. What a great way to decompress after a busy week! Free with park admission.
