Dennis Parson, Park Manager

Wes Skiles Peacock Springs is a special place worth visiting in any season. Summer, with its warm weather and longer days, is a busy season at Peacock Springs. Those extra hours allow you more time and opportunity to come out for a walk to take in and be a part of the natural beauty surrounding you.

Winter, with it's cooler weather and crisp days, allows for a quieter and more contemplative walk on some of the park trails. Follow our interpretive trail where you will find information and photos of the world underfoot, while following the underground pathways and caverns that divers explore below you.

The overlook at Olsen Sink offers a breathtaking view of clear blue water providing visitors a firsthand look at the karst topography that defines the Floridan Aquifer.

Anytime is a great time for divers from around the world who come to explore our water-filled caverns. The water is clear and inviting for diving, snorkeling or swimming at Orange Grove sink and Peacock Springs. Bring a picnic lunch and sit at the pavilion beside Orange Grove sink, or grill up lunch at the picnic area beside Peacock Spring.
