Juniper Springs Florida
December 14, 2011 § 2 Comments
Juniper Springs is a historic area in the Ocala National Forest. The CCC constructed most of the features in the mid 1930’s including a water wheel that provided electricity for the campground. That wheel house is being renovated now to be as it was originally. The largest of the springs was made into a large swimming pool that drained past the wheel house turning the water wheel just before the cayack and canoe launching deck.
When we walked the nature trail board walk along the creek/river, I had an OOPS with the camera. I did not know I was recording as we walked. The result was interesting enough to show you here>
The other area of beautiful springs is at the other end of the wilderness walk. We saw a couple of otters swimming in the springs but they were too fast for me to fim.
