Rock Springs Run State Reserve


Location:In Sorrento, off State Route 46.
Facilities:2 canoe campsites and an equestrian campsite (all primitive), multi-use trails, restroom and shower facility (é).
Activities:Camping, hiking, canoeing, horseback riding, bicycling, wildlife viewing. Swimming is not permitted.
Special Features:Reserve features extensive trails through pine scrub, pine flatwoods, bayheads, hammocks, and swamps, but its most striking natural feature is the spring/run river system that surrounds most of its perimeter. This system is formed from the discharge of several artesian springs together with the tannic runoff from the surrounding watershed and is accessible from the hiking trails, but it also creates one of the most scenic canoe trails in central Florida. (Canoes and kayaks cannot be launched from within the Reserve, but there are several launching places outside the Reserve.)
