Manatee Springs State Park

We visited Manatee Springs State Park on Monday to get a look at the springs. There is a nice boardwalk that goes through the woods along the edge of the springs and continues all the way down to where the spring enters the Suwanee River. The water, even in the river, is crystal clear. We could see some large catfish on the bottom, around the boat dock that extends out into the river. No Manatees yet. They will show up in another month to get warm in the springs that stay 72 degrees all year.

The mouth of the springs where the water flows from below ground.
