Head to the tropical paradise of Alexander Springs Recreation Area for consistent 72-degree water that is crystal clear and surrounded by maple, sweetgum, and cabbage palm forest. Salt Springs Recreation Area is also one of the forest's top attractions with a natural spring that derives from deep fissures within the earth leaving very salty waters.
