Blue Spring-Volusia County (Orange City)
Blue Spring (Volusia County) is located in a large state park in central Florida and offers excellent camping facilities.  Blue is known for its manatee migration in the run during the winter months.  There is a large slit cave (right) that drops down to 110 feet where a restriction limits further exploring.  On the way down, there are smaller caves that dead end into darkness about 15 feet back.  Scuba divers may continue only to be confronted w/ a strong flow that's known to blow the mask right off a diver.  You must check in and register to scuba dive.  Check with the park before you go, as they periodically shut down due to algae growth or manatee migration.
Directions:
South on US 17/92 from Deland to Orange City.  Head west (left) on West French Ave (you should see signs).  continue west for 3 miles until you see the sign/entrance to the park on your left.
