Experience 636 acres of natural Florida at Otter Springs Park & Campground.
Our centerpiece, Otter Springs, is a second magnitude natural spring with an average temperature of 73 degrees and a flow of 10 million gallons of sparkling pure water daily. The spring creates a large clear pool and stream, which flows into the nearby Suwannee River.
The serene setting is perfect for fishing, bird watching, hiking and other outdoor activities. Indoors at the Little Otter Recreation Club we offer books, board games, and foosball.
And when you want a little bit of both indoor comfort and outdoor beauty, relax at a poolside table or swim laps in our enclosed pool pavilion.
Otter Springs Park & Campground provides a perfect base camp to explore Florida's Nature Coast, a nine-county stretch along the gulf that offers unique recreational and cultural adventures in an unspoiled environment.
