Devil's Den

Devil’s Den is a fern-draped sinkhole in Williston, Florida, that is fed by underground springs. The water averages 72 degrees Fahrenheit, and on cold winter mornings, steam can be seen rising from the ground — thus, early settlers named the pit Devil’s Den.

The sinkhole’s clear, warm water makes it a popular diving and snorkeling site, and visitors to the cave can see ancient rock formations, stalactites and fossil beds.
