Little River Spring Park is a county park with a large spring swimming hole that flows a short distance into the Suwannee River. The parking lot has a few benches to for scuba divers to use, and there is access to a short loop nature trail. From the parking area, a concrete path passes a few interpretive signs and either follows a ramp to some covered benches and access to the Suwannee River to the left or heads to a viewing platform overlooking the spring run's confluence with the Suwannee to the right. 

Steps descend to the springs itself, which flows from a limestone cave system at a constant 72 degrees. The caves open up for scuba divers, though the spring can be pretty crowded with swimmers during the warm months. 

The water remains emerald clear except during periods of high flow in the Suwannee when the larger river can flow into the pool area and color the waters a bit. 

There is no fee to use the park. Park hours are generally from sunrise to sunset, varying slightly by season, except for Tuesdays when the park opens at 11 a.m.
