Hart Springs is a Gilchrist County Park consisting of 3 small springs. that run out into the Suwannee. Depths range from 7 to 20 feet in the spring basins. A significant cave system was closed for several years after the deaths of divers. A program called "Rescue 911" w/ William Shatner was filmed here re-enacting the deaths of 2 divers that got lost in the cave system. The site has recently been re-opened to cave divers. The water color tends to be brown/green due to the vegetation around. A boardwalk goes out to the Suwannee. Not a visually impressive site.
Update! Hart Springs is open to cave divers again. You must register first.
