This is probally the number one tubing destination in Florida. Each summer hundreds of school and church buses leave south Georgia and north Florida in the wee hours of morning to spend the day picnicking and tubing at this park. The summer temperatures can soar above 100 degrees but the springs are always a cool 72.

Story/Tip

Quote:
Since the early 1900's residents of north Florida have enjoyed the amenities and natural springs that this community offers. Located on I-75 and Hwy 441 between Gainesville and Lake City, High Springs is easily accessible. There is a good but not unlimited selection of budget motels and family style restaurants. We also enjoy antique shopping here. For entertainment needs look to the great outdoors.
