Spring Outside to Excitement
Lots more to do beyond the campground
Your vacation will be complete when you visit the Seven Sisters Spring and its seven inter-connected underground pools. Experience the thrill of cave diving! You can dive into one and swim to the next! See manatees, egrets, and dolphins. Fish for bass, bluegill, and mangrove snapper. You’ll find all kinds of things to see and do in the tropical wilderness of the True Nature Coast.
Seven Sisters Springs and The Crack
Paddle your kayak to a set of incredible fresh water springs – one deep and dark, one shallow with a limestone bottom and short tunnels leading to the next spring. The Crack is a secluded salt water spring, accessible only by paddling the shallow Chassahowitzka River to the southern portion of Citrus County.
Weeki Wachee Springs State Park
See live mermaids perform at the deepest known freshwater spring and cave system in the United States. Mermaid shows are really popular, so get there early for one of the three daily performances at this lush, natural park.
Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park
Discover the wild side of Florida with endangered Florida panther, red wolf, manatee and whooping crane, plus black bear, bobcat and, of course, alligators. Visit the Underwater Observatory and walk beneath the spring’s surface to watch the various fish and manatees swim above you.
Southern Woods Golf Club
Formerly known as Citrus National Golf Club, the course offers an 18-hole layout designed by Hale Irwin, a double-sided driving range, putting green and chipping green, as well as lessons from a staff of PGA golf professionals. Have brunch, lunch, or dinner at the Southern Woods Restaurant.
Naughty spider monkeys have lived on this man-made island in the Homosassa River ever since the 1960s. See them scampering around from your seat at the Florida Cracker Riverside Resort or the Monkey Bar.
