Ponce De Leon Springs

Ponce de Leon Springs State Park is $4 to park (may be self park/pay) and springs/swim area is immediately to the right of the parking area. Dipped our toes -- Fountain of Youth definitely works.

Ponce De Leon Spring

Ponce De Leon Spring, a spring-fed swimming hole. Amazing. 68 degrees year round. Crystal clear water. State park inexpensive. Really worth the visit -- bring a suit.

[Voodoodriver, 04/10/2014]

Part of a state park, the spring is named after the Spanish explorer who wandered around Florida looking for the Fountain of Youth. As we all know today, that attraction is in St. Augustine (or Lewes, Delaware).
