Nice quiet park that seems to be very popular with divers. Nice trail to hike as well. There is plenty of parking and places to picnic as well.

Great place to hike,swim and look at the sunken ship. Water was so clear you can see the bottom. There were several places to dive. Nice place to picnic.

Troy Springs is mostly for used for diving instruction - it gets deep quick. We snorkeled and saw the sunken remains of the Civil War supply boat. It was awesome and very quiet - even on a hot day in July!

We visited Troy Springs years ago when it was private property for SCUBA diving. The State of Florida has since acquired the property and paved the access road, built restrooms and a great winding ramp to the water. Troy is a great spot to swim, snorkel, or dive. The entrance fee is only $5 per car. You can paddle about or dive down to 60ft.…

This would have really been a nice quiet place to go but the springs had flooded so there was very little beach to sit on. It was very clear and beautiful so we cramped up on what little space we could. The water was cool and you could see very far down. It's more diver friendly and the landing kind of stops abruptly to where you have to maneuver your way around roots and rocks, though I think if the water was lower it may have been easier. There was a couple there that had their dog and he wasn't on a leash. Let's just say the husky didn't want to go in the water and started to race around, scaring some of the other people because he was so frightened himself. He ended up scratching his owner because she was forcing and holding him in the water. But I digress. The bathrooms are very clean and big, there is a large picnic area to relax under the trees, and the whole way down to the water hole is a ramp so I would assume it is wheelchair accessible until you get to where the platform ends, then it could get a little tricky. Highly recommended to at least stop by for an hour or more so when it's not flooded. There's even a slight sandbar around the entire spring hole so you can go pretty far out by just walking or wading. There's an honor system payment of 5 dollars which we happily pay because it's such a clean and secluded gem. Divers will love this place!…
