This state park is a little off the beaten path but a paradise for cave divers. This was my first time visiting and diving Peacock Springs and it was pretty amazing. They had 2 changing rooms and a couple of porta johns. There's a nice board walk down to the cave entrance at Peacock. They also have a walking trail for those interested in just enjoying nature.

We had been visiting all the nearby natural springs, was glad not to miss this one. There is a walking tail that loops around the springs and various sink holes in the area. It was fun and fascinating to watch the multitude of divers that go down to explore the cave systems. Note: the road to the far spring was very rough and filled with water from a recent rain.

This was our primary training grounds for our cave course. Despite spending 10 days diving here, we were only able to explore about half of the caves. Do NOT enter the caves without proper training! People have died here doing that. The walking trails were pleasant, but not wheelchair accessible. The springs proper do have wooden walkways to allow access.

We decided to visit Peacock Springs because we were staying nearby. It was not swimming weather for us, but there were at least 10 people at the Springs to cave dive. We walked the interpretive trail (approx 1.1miles), read the information boards, saw some white tailed deer and viewed the various springs. The walk was very easy, even for kids. The fall colours are lovely at this time of year. We spent about an hour at the park looking around, but you could spend more time there and enjoy a picnic lunch if you wanted to. Entrance is $4 per car.

Also swimming is allowed in some of the sinkholes on property. Bugs can be a nuisance. Cavern and cave divers must be certified by some recognized training agency. Unfortunately no-solo diving and park closes for visiting at sunset. Some sinkholes are closed for access. Freediving is fun and challenging. Sinkhole trail is good for a short walk. Park has a paddling campsite on Suwannee river (only accessed from river). Wildlife apart from bugs are birds, turtles, snakes, beavers, freshwater fish and gators.
