Welcome to Devils Den!
Don’t go Aww!! Devils Den is nothing but a sweet, little underground spring inside a dry cave in central Florida. Located in the small town of Williston, the Devils Den is all about crystal clear water surrounded by a limestone structure that contains ancient fossils.
It is now privately owned and operated by scuba diving and snorkelling facility, which will take you about 60 ft under the water. The dive opens a new world of underwater ecosystem. A climb down on the narrow stone staircase followed by a wooden staircase will lead you to a dive platform. Divers will be greeted with crappies, catfish, turtles and guppies.
Human remains dated 7,500 BC old were found inside the cave. One of the specialities of this cave is that the water is perfectly warm and clear throughout the year. The scary name Devils Den came mainly because of the steam coming out from the cave during winter.
The animal remains discovered from the cave include mastodons, sloths, camels, horses, wolves, bears, and saber-tooth cats. These were displayed at the University of Florida’s Museum of Natural History.
