If you are looking for a great place to escape to that's not too far from the hustle and bustle of Orlando, come check out Kelly Park. The scenery is beautiful here, and the camp sights exquisite. The clear waters from the spring and the abundant wildlife will have you saying this is beautiful country!

What a great place! Go and take a tube ride down the springs, walk and see wildlife including a momma bear with cubs we just saw 2 weeks ago meandering about in the campsite area! Or go and take your RV, tents, etc and camp out. They have lots of sites in beautiful wooded areas. We love site #14.. close... More

Fourteen of us experienced the springs mid-week the 3rd week of Sept (ages 2-52). It was very quiet the day we went. There weren't more than 25 other people there and only one other group of 4-5 that were actually floating from start to finish. The water was certainly cold, but floating together and walking the trail back to the... More

This is a great park. It is also called Rock Springs. There are pavilions to rent and ample parking.

The park does not rent... More

Having seen everything in Orlando while vacationing there the last 6 years we wanted to try something lesser known. We were very lucky as there was no-one there on a random Wednesday morning. A great spot for people to visit who are bored of them parks but we were advised don't go on weekends as it becomes packed.

I agree with others about this being a great place. I admit we were nervous on the first run in case we bumped into an alligator! One thing not to forget is something to keep your valuables/car keys dry in if the whole family goes tubing. We went Second week of Sept mid week and the park was quiet.

I've been coming to this park for years and have never had a bad time. It's my favorite place to swim and cool off in the summer. Great place for a family picnic or birthday party. Lots to see and do. Great facilities. Trails to hike. My favorite is the run. Gods lazy river. I highly recommend Kelly Park.
