I don't typically write reviews of places that I've been to, however, I had such a horrible time camping here I felt compelled to warn others of what they could experience. First off - this has only to do with camping. The springs are beautiful...More

We drove from Daytona Beach and it was a pleasant day trip. We got into Alexander Springs before there was a big queue - TIP: get there early! Make sure you take food and drink as there isn't much available there. Such a great spot...More

Clear blue amazing water and everything clean, picnic and cooling off in the cool water. We are new to the area, and this is a VERY good place to recommend for relaxation

Prices to enter the park used to be $6.00/ car load. Now there is a day use fee per person. I believe Alexander Springs is $5.50 per per. How is a family supposed to afford this every weekend?

The water is crystal clear and excellent for a swim. Make sure you bring goggles to see under water. Before dipping yourself, walk the short path around the springs. There is also an extensive picnic area and campsite.

One of my favorite springs! Loved by our whole group. Totally worth the $5.50 per person. They take care of it nicely! Been multiple times. On our most recent trip, we launched our own Kayaks, and kayaked down the run. We were about 30 minutes...More
