“161-acre park with 250-foot natural springs for swimming & diving”

Morrison Springs is one of the most popular diving spots in northwest Florida and is well-known throughout the southeast. The large, sandy-bottomed spring is surrounded by a 161-acre park that is managed by Walton County. Morrison Spring discharges an average of 48 million gallons of crystal-clear water each day to create a 250-foot-diameter spring pool and a spring run that flows into the Choctawhatchee River. There are 3 cavities reported at the bottom of the spring pool, 1 of which is 300 feet deep. The spring is popular not only for scuba diving but also for swimming and snorkeling. The county recently provided new amenities to this park, including a picnic pavilion and restroom facilities. A large wheelchair-accessible boardwalk, with an overlook, links the springs to the floodplain along the spring run. A floating dock for divers only is located just a few yards from the spring boil and accessed from shore through the wheelchair-accessible boardwalk. A boat ramp was constructed downstream of the spring to avoid conflicts with swimmers and divers at the spring. From Interstate 10, take Exit 96 onto Highway 81 South. Go about 6 miles. Turn left onto Highway 181-A. Drive for 1.5 miles, turn right onto Morrison Springs Road, and follow the road to its end. At a Glance: Activities: Swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, photography, nature walk/boardwalk, birding Entrance Fee: No Scuba Diving: Yes Onsite Camping: No Dogs Allowed: Yes–under certain conditions Type of Park: County operated

Stopped in for a quick jump! Way more family oriented than vortex springs but they do not have slides or anything. Very beautiful!
