We decided to spend a day tubing after reading reviews on TA and were more than glad that we did. We paid $5 entry and $5 for a tube (we rented these just before you enter the park) and had more fun than a day in the theme parks. The water was beautiful and the current takes you downstream to...

It only takes 20 minutes to tube the entire spring. There is a nice picnic area so we packed a lunch. You can't beat it for $5!

While vacationing in Kissimmee we planned a family day trip to the springs. We called the day before to see how busy it was so that we could plan our arrival time. Since they were not full we decided to arrive around 10am. We rented tubes for $5 each just before entering the park. ( you can bring your own... More

My experience was amazing! Is a beautiful place to have a different time and enjoy nature at a low cost.

We went to Kelly Park on a Sunday Morning. We were a group of 6; with 2 seniors, 2 adults, and our 2 daughters (16 and 12). We arrived at 9:30 and the park was almost to capacity. I thought church was the only place people showed up early to on a Sunday morning :) We rented the tubes from... More

I have lived in Florida for over 30 years and only recently heard of Kelly Springs. One of my friends posted photos on Facebook so my 13-year old and I decided to take the trip. With all the reviewers saying to get there early, we arrived right as it opened at 8am on a summer Wednesday (our drive was almost... More

This spring was very nice. There is an area for people who just want to swim in the year-round 68 degree water and there is also a tube run for those who brought their own tube or rented one from sellers near-by. The park opens at 8 am, but when I arrived at 7:00 there was already a line so... More

This place is being destroyed by local people who have no respect for nature or each other. Trash everywhere, dirty diapers on the ground, garbage in the lazy river and spring, sketchy people all over, deplorable bathrooms, it is the hood of springs with no exaggeration. Our 3 yoa daughter stepped on two soiled maxipads that some pig threw on... More

So we got to Kelly park on a weekday and it was not that bad. The forecast for today called for rain and thunder showers. Typical summer forecast. We decided to go anyway. First thing the place is absolutely beautiful with the overhanging trees. Secondly there's places to picnic everywhere. The springs are beautiful with lots of overhanging trees and... More
