Beautiful, cool, clear water. There are lots of activities that we did not get a chance to do. The swimming was delightful with slide and diving board. Lifeguards on duty. The only draw back were the gnats. They did not bite but would swarm around...More

This is a wonderful but busy place during the summer. Go canoeing at off times like October to enjoy all the natural beauty without the noise!

The water is cold, but beautifully clear. It is an incredible sight to see the huge amounts of water that bubble up from the spring. Worth a visit even if you are too timid to brave the cold!

I really like this park, it has easy access to the water, and a lot of covered picnic tables. It also has nice modern clean bathrooms. The water near the shore area is very clear since it is spring fed.

Great family fun! Really nice park and water was great fun for the kids. Places to grill, white sand with dock, and small playground.

This is a wonderful park that is well kept and a perfect place to launch for paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, etc. Water is cool year round, and the springs keep the entire pond clear for spectacular viewing of various vegetation and wildlife!!

No. The park area around the spring is not that big and they do not allow any watercraft in the park. The park has a barrier foot bridge between the park and the river to keep boats out, but they do have docks on the river... More
