Great diving bowl when the sun is overhead. My kids were always visible and we all had a ball.

Dived the spring this past weekend. Fun little dive- easy entry, good facilities. Nice deep hole near the entry point that drops to around 75-80 feet depending on the river height. Couple of small caves at the bottom that are too narrow to penetrate. A warning though: there is a $15 per diver fee that is not posted on their website or mentioned on the state park website. Also there is sign prohibiting lights which is a shame since there's a neat, safe, cavern at the bottom of the spring.

This is the second spring I dove in the process of becoming scuba certified. The spring was enjoyable. There were many fish to see as well as a lot to explore in the rock formations. If you are a patient, curious person, locate and try to see how many tounge fish you can find around the Madision steam ship. I recommend this to anybody who is a beginner to scuba diving or if you just want a fun dive for the day.

Water clarity is good until stirred up. Good rock wall to explore and work. Not too crowded during the week, but not so good on the weekend.

Dove this mid-week in November after a day at Ginnie and Paradise Springs nearby. Nice new road and paved access down to dock. Easy entry. Large, open spring head (57' deep) empties into shallow, wide spring run 300' to Suwannee River. Spring head crystal clear, water temp 72. Tons of large turtles and other fish in spring and run. It's cool to hang at the point where the clear spring water mixes with the very stained, tannic waters of the Suwannee. Remnants of an 1860's paddle wheeler sit in the shallows of the spring run. Just the ribs remain visible. Nice mellow dive for newbies or as a last dive of the day. No one else encountered, but might be jammed with swimmers/divers on a hot summer day. Campground on premises. Nominal park fee charged.
