Hot and humid summer Florida summer days are made pleasant within seconds of dipping into one of the Florida Springs. They are cool all year long, with an average temperature of around 72 degrees. To some, that's cold, to others that is pure refreshing. You can find a family friendly spring guide here. Camping at the Florida springs is great.
