This place is very interesting and fun. We purchased masks and fins from their store, price was marked up to bad. You enter the caved area and wind down the stairs to the water. The light comes through a hole in the ceiling. The fish were swimming all around us. The water was a little chilly but I didn’t need a wetsuit. You can also scuba dive.
Devil’s Den Spring is a one of a kind spring with diving and snorkeling offered. We camped here and were the only two in the campground since it was summer and their slow season. The bathrooms were clean and showers were available. The store also rented out snorkeling and diving equipment.
No where near town, not a very exciting destination after all. Other than a photo opportunity the water is cold and not much room to swim.
this is privately owned and operated no spring to swim in for non-snorkelers. There is a minimum age limit. Snorkeling and diving only You cannot go down unless you have a mask and they watch you buy camera to make sure your snorkeling and not just swimming. The water blue and cold Abundance of wildlife in the natural spring. The campsite was quiet Only three campers including myself. Camping Rates are low so if you need a place to stop at try here. They offer veterans and military discount you can rent gear and buy a few things like snacks defog for your mask and a couple other essential items. The showers are very hot I stayed in a bit past my Timeline up a public facility use, ha ha. Campsite was decent has portable toilet water Spicket and electrical at campsite think I stand a campsite number 13 but it was not assigned. There was a work truck that kept coming and going until about 8pm. And then left for the evening. There is a two hour time limit for snorkeling but you can walk the grounds. There is a swimming pool to enjoy it if you go camping you’re allowed in no extra charge but if you don’t go camping you can pay a fee and go swimming in the pool. I had to make-shift a tent because I wasn’t expecting to go camping just stopped in for a bit and Decide to stay the night.
The campground has cabins, RV hookups and tent sites. It's nothing to write home about. It was just convenient to be close to the springs since it's a decent drive from any other major city in Florida. The springs themselves are quite cold so in the end we didn't spend that much time swimming - we probably could have driven back home and not camped after all. The Devil's Den itself is very neat to see, definitely worth going to at least once to snorkel or scuba dive. But if you can drive back to wherever you're staying, I would! I only took pics of the spring and not of the campground unfortunately. Enjoy!
Beautiful grounds. Separate tent and RV camping. beautiful cabins and pool. But the highlight of camping here is being able to explore Devils Den while snorkeling and or diving. There is a full dive shop on site with equipment rentals. Nice picnic areas and community fire pit. Neighboring experiences include botanical garden and horseback riding - 5 min from major retailer to restock supplies. Bathrooms are not the best but they are clean. Staff is very friendly! No pets outside of RV area - strictly enforced!
