Troy Springs State Park (Lafayette County)

(1st Magnitude Spring)
674 N.E. Troy Springs Road
Branford, Florida 32008
Phone: 386-935-4835
Cost $3 per vehicle (limit 8 people per vehicle)

Needed a day off, took pictures of several springs. This spring is not really recommended for young children as there was no shallow area that was apparent. A park ranger though told me that when the Suwannee River is lower though that there is a place to the left for little kids to swim in but it was not obvious to me. From the steps it appears to be an immediate drop off into fairly deep water. This spring flows into the Suwanee River.

Great family environment, but recommend life jacket or flotation device. Bring goggles and snorkel to see the sunken Civil War era boat bordering the Suwanee River. This is a green spring. The blue springs seem to be on the other side of the river.
