    Old school Florida tourist trap at its best. This is what road trips were made of before the corporate mega-parks put all the little mom-n-pop places out of business (e.g., Cypress Gardens, Silver Springs). I don’t care if it isn’t the “best” – it brings back memories, it is unique, and it is a welcome place to spend a low-key, low cost, half of a day compared to the rush of every place else.

    Most of these reviews were mistaking it for Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, but this isn’t the place with the mermaids. This is a nature preserve with no facilities and no mer-creatures of any sort. It’s my favorite preserve in the area – very unique scenery and a great place for a hike. Oh, and it has a hill! That’s kind of unique for this part of Florida…

    We rented a double Kayak and we had such a great time. The people who rented a canoe not so much, theirs kept flipping over while we were just passing through in such a nice ride. I enjoyed it very much. I would highly reccomend.

    The mermaid show is the only reason to go to this state park. Everyone knows that! There is a crappy kids water park called Buccaneer Bay and believe me it’s nothing to write home about. On July 4 weekend I took my parents to see the show. I couldn’t believe they remembered the Weeki Wachee commercials from their childhood (in the 60s, they were living in New York… watching this dinky park in Spring Hill Florida on national tv!). So anyway the show was cancelled due to a lightning warning (did not actually see any lightning), but staff on the overhead speaker encouraged all 400 patrons packed like sardines in their auditorium to swim in the BUCCANEER BAY instead. That doesn’t make any sense!!!! The management refused to issue any refunds, they would not even give out rain checks to those who complained. I call that fraud buddy!!!!!!!!!!!

    I had such a good time at this fun, quirky park. There are two parts of the park. The first part is one that you walk through, taking photos, and you can also take a short cruise down the river, and learn about wildlife. You can also watch a mermaid show. The second part is a water park, that has 3 water slides, and a swimming area. $8.00 gets you into both parts, and parking is free. Pretty cheap for a good time! I do wish that the “tubing area” was larger (it is roped off, which was kind of a bummer). Also, as soon as we got to the end of the “tubing area”, the employee was a little bit snappy, and wanted us to move right away. I could have done without the rudeness, on a nice relaxing day. Other than that, I give this place 4 out of 5 stars, because it is a fun family day for cheap!
