De Leon Springs State Park

The outstanding feature of the 625 acre park is the spring, overlooking beautiful Spring Garden Run, producing 19 million gallons of water a day at 72 degrees year-round. The swimming area is accessible by stairs, ramp and a swimmer lift. If you prefer to stay above the water, canoes, paddleboats and kayaks may be rented from the park's concession. Picnic tables, grills and a playground are available under the grand live oak trees, with four pavilions available for rent. Visitors can hike the 4.2 mile Wild Persimmon Hiking Trail or take a leisurely stroll on the one-half mile paved Nature Trail to see the 600 year-old cypress tree. The popular Sugar Mill Restaurant, located in a 100 year-old replica of the original 1830s sugar mill, features cook-your-own pancakes at the table and freshly made bread and cookies.
