“take a swim with Civil War-steamboat remains”

The depths of this spring contain the remains of the Civil War-era steamboat Madison, scuttled in the spring run in 1863 to keep it from being captured. A recent addition to the state park system, Troy Spring now has an entrance road, restrooms, an accessible walkway, picnic tables, and a riverside dock for canoeists and boaters on the Suwannee River. This 70-foot deep, first magnitude spring offers opportunities for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Bring the family for an old fashioned swimming hole party! Only open-water scuba diving is permitted and divers must be certified; no solo diving is allowed. Trails for hiking and horseback riding are being developed.

Visiting Troy Spring State Park with the family helped to change our mood quickly.

Beautiful, clean, including toilets and picnic benches makes it a good destination for spending the whole afternoon. We saw people swimming as well, but I think it was a bit uneasy for my kids to swim there as it did not look safe enough for young children.

Easily accessible with nice views. Recommended for families!
