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. Please visit our website for a complete list of all of our events.
