Ponce De Leon Springs State Park

On our recent camping trip to Falling Waters State Park, we decided it was warm enough to take a swim. It may have been only a few days after Christmas and technically winter, but we were still in Florida where winter has to battle it's way even into the northern reaches of the state.  For our swim, we preferred the clear, inviting waters of  Ponce De Leon Springs State Park about 25 minutes away over the small lake at our campground.
This is a small day use park great for a picnic and a swim and is not to be mistaken with the much larger De Leon Springs State Park in central Florida. Both state parks are named after the towns in which they are located. I did not previously realize that Florida had two towns - Ponce De Leon Springs and De Leon Springs - so similarly named.
