The most popular attraction around is Rainbow Springs which is Florida's fourth largest freshwater spring and feeds the Rainbow River, the States longest clear water, lazy river, popular for swimming, snorkeling, canoeing and kayaking. The head spring is great for exploring, swimming, and kayaking. To enjoy 4 hours of a relaxing float, head to KP Hole and enjoy a day on the river. For a shorter float head to Rainbow Springs tube entrance which will give you two hours floating time. Please remember there is no disposable items permitted on the river with hefty fines associated for those who violate these rules. Pack everything in Tupperware, reusable coolers and thermoses. No bagged chips, soda cans or bottles, and absolutely no styrofoam.
Our property is off 41 in a quiet neighborhood with wide, well paved and maintained roads. Acreage is not fully fenced yet so drive up into the yard as you see fit while respecting these priceless old oaks. At this time we only have potable water via a well system on site but no electric or sewer is available. If you are planning to run a generator it must be turned off during quiet hours (10pm-7am) unless it is quiet enough not to disturb the neighbors. Dump stations can be found at the multiple truck stops off i75. Absolutely no dumping of black or grey water on site. Outdoor showers are permitted.
