Devil's Den
Devil's Den is a privately owned spring within a dry cave just northeast of Williston, Florida. The temperature of the spring water is a constant 72 degrees  ... which on cold winter mornings can cause fog to rise from the surface of the water. The smoke-like fog exiting from the cave opening caused early settlers to name the spring "Devil's Den".

Scuba diving and snorkeling is allowed in the spring. Since the only entrance into the cave and spring is a staircase that ends in the water, no one may enter unless they are diving or snorkeling. Free swimming without gear is not allowed.

The spring, which is actually formed from a sinkhole, is about 120 feet in diameter and extends to a depth of 54 feet below the surface of the water. It is available for scuba diving training, but you must be accompanied by your own instructor. The Devil's Den management does not provide instructors or trainers.

A gift shop is available on site where you can purchase souvenirs, snacks and beverages. Scuba and snorkeling gear is available for rent. There is also a changing area with bathrooms and a shower. Picnic tables, cabanas and charcoal grills are available for guests visiting the spring.

The Devil's Den property also includes four rental cabins, as well as a large RV park with hookups for overnight visitors. A tent campground is also available.

Reservations are not required or accepted - except for the overnight rental cabins and RV spots. Diving or snorkeling in the spring are offered on a first-come first-served basis. Tent campsites do not require reservations - some have electric and water hookups.
