Small state park in Florida! Stunning Oak Trees, natural spring swimming area, boat rides, remains of an old sugar mill. Don't miss Sugar Mill restaurant in the park, you cook your own pancakes at the table.

De Leon Springs is very developed but it is worth at least one visit to experience all it has to offer. The spring is surrounded by cement walls and walkways, which does make entry easy from the stairways (but quite un-natural). We went on a...More
