Little River Springs is a 125-acre county park on the Suwannee River that includes 2 walking trails for nature walks and the opportunity for a wide variety of wildlife viewing including deer, squirrels, and numerous birds. The spring stays at 72 degrees all year long so this is a perfect spot for swimming, snorkeling, and canoeing or kayaking any time of year. Our springs feel like air conditioning in the summertime and heat in the winter. There is a cave system too so scuba divers from all over the world love to visit and explore what lies beneath our feet. The spring run is approximately 150 feet long with a cave system that is more than 1,200 feet long.
Little River Springs is an ideal place to see the difference between the clear spring water and the tea-colored Suwannee River. You’ll notice a temperature difference too! Several shallow areas make this a kid-friendly spring. There are three handicap-accessible pavilion areas with grills available for picnics, two overlooks, portable restrooms, and paved sidewalks.
As of May 5th, 2023 there will be an entrance fee of $5 per vehicle. We would love to have you enjoy this park and please don’t trash where you splash. From April through October the park hours are 7am – 7pm. From November through March the park hours are 7am – 6pm.
This area is known as the heart of “spring country” so visit some of our other springs while you are here! Nearby springs include Royal Springs and Peacock Springs.
