Troy Spring State Park
Welcome to Troy Spring State Park
This 70-foot deep, first magnitude spring offers opportunities for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. Bring the family for an old fashioned swimming hole party! Nestled in the shallow water of the spring run are the remains of the Civil War-era steamboat Madison which was scuttled in 1863 to keep it from being captured. A hidden gem in north-central Florida, Troy Spring has restrooms, an accessible walkway, picnic tables, an interpretive nature trail and a riverside dock for canoeists and boaters on the Suwannee River.
Only open-water scuba diving is permitted and divers must be certified; no solo diving is allowed.
