Both beautiful and historic, and totally remodeled in 2009, Juniper Springs features a large campground plus one of the great swimming holes in the state, complete with a historic mill house.  The Juniper Creek canoe run also begins here, and is ranked as one of the best canoe runs in Central Florida.

The Juniper Springs Campground was recently featured in in USAToday “10 great  places to pitch a pup tent”

The Juniper Springs Canoe Run was featured in an article and video from the Tampa Bay Times.

An update on the boardwalk. We've received a lot of questions about when the boardwalk will re-open. We realize how frustrating the wait has been. We love the boardwalk as well and want to get it fixed just as quickly as we can. Here's is why it wasn't fixed right after Hurricane Matthew: Juniper does not receive Federal tax dollars to improve things. Recreation Resource Management takes in the revenue we receive from you the customer and in turn takes a percentage of that revenue (based on our contract with the Forerst Service) and puts it back into repairs, additions (like the bear resistant food storage boxes etc.) for the rec area. Since the Hurricane wiped out the boardwalk at the end of the year our budget was pretty much spent so we had to wait until 2017. Us and the Forest Service were trying to come up with a better way of fixing the walkway for longevity but the costs were just too high. So now that we've come to a decision on what we're going to do we are now taking bids for the work. (Bids must be taken for any government project) In conclusion we are hoping to get it fixed in the next month or two. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience but please bare with us through this process. ... See MoreSee Less
