Florida's spring parks and recreation areas offer visitors excellent locations for picnicking and camping. During the day, picnickers can swim and snorkel in the clear, cool waters of headsprings, walk along nature trails, and gaze deep underwater on glass-bottomed boat tours. At night, under a canopy of stars and enveloped in a symphony of crickets and tree frogs, campers can literally have the springs to themselves, as it might have been for Florida's first residents ten thousand years ago. Many spring parks offer cabins, tent camping and sites for recreational vehicles, as well as showers, convenience stores or concession stands. Canoe, kayak, and snorkel rentals can be found at the water's edge at several spring parks.
