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.
