If you wish to stay the night, you are more than welcome to pitch a tent or park your RV at our full-facility campground down river from the headspring at 18185 S.W. 94th St. Visit our online reservation system in advance to make reservations as our campground is popular and sites go quickly.

Learn about one of the largest springs in the state, the plants and wildlife that make this their home, and the people from the past that once did! Check frequently to learn more about park educational programs coming up, or contact the park to make any special program requests.

Headsprings Entrance

19158 S.W. 81st Place Road

The headsprings water temperature is a refreshing 72 degrees, so come out for a dip. We have several pavilions, tables and grills available at the headsprings for a picnic. You may want to rent a canoe or kayak from our visitor services provider. Once the park reaches capacity, the park will close for the day. If you leave the park you will not be allowed to re-enter until the following day. For safety reasons, you will not be allowed to wait in line in the park when we are closed, nor can you park on the roads adjacent to the park. Vehicles left outside the park on the road or private property may be towed at the owner’s expense.

With 60 campsites, there is a wonderful opportunity to visit and relax in the park. Note: Weekends are booked well in advance so either make a reservation as early as possible or plan to visit on weekdays. Our campground is located on 180th Avenue Road. Reservations can be made up to 11 months in advance.

Three of the 60 total sites are pull-through sites for RVs only. Seven sites are for tents only, with a common parking area and a short walk to the sites, and 50 of the sites are for RV or tent. Eight of these sites are paved and enhanced for visitors with mobility challenges.

To ensure full access to the sites, the camping pads have been packed with gravel. Tents will need heavy-duty stakes. There are four restroom facilities, a pavilion by the playground, a holding tank dump station, a paved entrance road and a camp store. All of the sites have 20/30/50 amp electrical service and the RV sites have sewer connections. The campground roads are paved and we think you will find the campground to be an excellent camping experience.

We look forward to seeing you in the park soon.
