Homosassa Springs
Wildlife State Park

Just 2 miles from Cedars Lake RV Park & Campground is the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park.

Check it out and take the electric motor powered pontoon boat to the zoo section where there are animals native to Florida on display including manatees, cougar, black bear, deer and one lonely hippo.

Visitors can see West Indian manatees every day of the year from the park's underwater observatory in the main spring. The park showcases native Florida wildlife, including manatees, black bears, bobcats, white-tailed deer, American alligators, American crocodiles, and river otters. Manatee programs are offered three times daily. At the Wildlife Encounter programs, snakes and other native animals are featured. Recreational opportunities include picnicking, nature study, and bird-watching. The park features a children's education center, providing hands-on experiences about Florida's environment. Transportation from the visitor center on U.S. 19 to the West Entrance is available by tram or boat. The park has two concessionaire-operated gift shops and a concessionaire-operated café with a selection of beverages and snacks. Plan 3 1/2 to 4 hours to tour the park. Check the Ranger Programs for a list of interactive events throughout the park each day.

Florida's Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park has a long name -- and an even longer list of Florida wildlife in residence. Meet the many animals who call the park home -- including one you might not expect -- in this episode.

Yulee Sugar Mill Ruins
Historic State Park

This site was once part of a thriving sugar plantation owned by David Levy Yulee. Yulee was a member of the Territorial Legislative Council, and served in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate after Florida statehood. The park contains the remnants of the once-thriving 5,100-acre sugar plantation: a forty-foot limestone masonry chimney, iron gears, and a cane press. The steam-driven mill operated from 1851 to 1864 and served as a supplier of sugar products for southern troops during the Civil War.
