The sparkling clear 68 degree
natural spring water certainly gives visitors of all ages a refreshing feeling
of youth. The spring consists of two flows from a limestone cavity, which
produce approximately 14 million gallons of water daily. The spring run
flows into Sandy Creek, which eventually flows into the Choctawhatchee River
several miles to the south.
The spring provides year-round 68 degree water for swimming and sunning.
The uplands include nature trails for a leisurely walk or nature study,
picnicking and access to fishing along Sandy Creek.
Ponce de Leon Springs State Recreation Area is located one half mile south of U.S. 90 on C.R,181-A.
