A circular underground sinkhole with a wide opening to the surface. Steam rising during winter gave the hole its name. It's impressive to look at -- but lookers aren't allowed. Or swimmers. You're only allowed into Devil's Den if you want to snorkel or scuba. No one under 18 without an adult, no pets, visitors must sign a liability waver, etc.
