Manatee Springs State Park is a public park that features an array of amenities and facilities, including an 800-foot boardwalk that winds its way through a forest of tall cypress trees overlooking one of Florida’s first magnitude springs. The temperate waters of the springs attract manatees in the colder months, which can be viewed from the boardwalk or on kayaking or canoeing tours. The park also offers over eight miles of nature trails with a connection to the 32-mile Nature Coast State Trail, along with camping, fishing, canoeing and kayaking, picnicking, scuba diving and cavern diving, snorkeling, swimming, and wildlife viewing. Visitors can also enjoy pontoon boat tours, guided nature walks, and ranger-managed campfire circles at the outdoor amphitheater on the waterfront.
