" Manatee Springs State Park "
The first-magnitude spring at this park produces an average of 100 million gallons of clear, cool water daily. In winter, West Indian manatees swim upriver to the warmer waters of the springs. Popular for snorkeling and scuba diving, the headwaters of the spring are also a great spot for swimming. The spring run forms a sparkling stream that meanders through hardwood wetlands to the Suwannee River. Canoe and kayaking is available all year round through our concessionaire, Anderson's Outdoor Adventures, LLC. Children enjoy the playground in the picnic area. Hiking and bicycling are available on the north end trail system. The full-facility campground is surrounded by red oak woods.

“Will be back again and again”
We had such an amazing time. We paddled the 9.2 mile trek down the Suwanee river. NOTE: The current moves at about 2-3 mph, I thought we would take much longer to do 9 miles, but we did it in about 3 hrs. Saw about a handful of gators, and the jumping sturgeon were cool. The restrooms around our campsite were a functional but not great. They were closing the area that we were in next week for renovations. Let's hope that includes the bathroom. I had a great time, we had a huge campsite, and we met some really great people. The Cheifland community has that old Florida feel, everyone is so polite and nice. The springs are gorgeous (and very very cold).
