Alexander Springs is located one hour from Daytona and 1 hour and 20 minutes from Orlando. The spring is located in Ocala National Forest which is 673 mi2 in area. The water temperature year-round is 72 degrees. The park offers canoe and kayak rentals and camping is available. The park fee is $5.50 per person and $6.50 for scuba diving.
The website USDA “United States Department of Agriculture” has additional information click here . This is a nice relaxing park but since we started talking about USDA that also makes me think about food. The best idea on the way to the park is to stop at a Triple Z family market to get some supplies to enjoy the rest of your day.
One final Note we hope to visit the spring this year to provided some new updated photos stay tuned.
“Always contact parks before visiting to have the most updated hours and possible closures”
