We found this place by mistake while doing a snorkeling road trip last spring break and ended up staying two nights. It isn't the biggest of springs but was very impressed and had more fun here than at Ginnie Springs (also visited that trip). At the time of going, March 15, 2005 timeframe, there were no crowds to speak of. Wildlife was great, tons of fish and turtles. Manatees closing the spring was not an issue. Camping facilities were great and the animals were almost tame, but bring your own firewood.
