Troy Springs State Park is a Florida State Park,
located approximately six miles north of Branford, off US 27. It
contains one of the state's 33 first magnitude springs.
Welcome to Troy Spring State Park
The depths of this spring contain the remains of
the Civil War-era steamboat Madison, scuttled in the spring run in
1863 to keep it from being captured. A recent addition to the state
park system, Troy Spring now has an entrance road, restrooms, an
accessible walkway, picnic tables, and a riverside dock for canoeists
and boaters on the Suwannee River.
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!
Only open-water scuba diving is permitted and divers must be
certified; no solo diving is allowed. Trails for hiking and horseback
riding are being developed.
