Nice little park with a very interesting swimming/tube run. The tube run is only approx 30 minutes then you take a quick hike back up and do it again. The mornings are nice but by 11 the place can be a zoo. Too many people swimming the main swimming area and ruins the natural setting for me. Hidden secret is... More

I went with my boyfriend's family and we had a blast! When the park is full they let you in if you rent a camp space for $20-$30. The water is super clean and the "pool" is fun. The "lazy river" is fun with or without a tube. It's a nice place to go :)

Park fills up quick, so get there early. We got there at 8:00 am, when they opened, and we waited in line for over 30 minutes to get in the gate. We were with a large group that rented a pavilion, within an hour of being there we were checked on by a staff member checking to see if we... More

This was my first time ever going to a spring in FL, took my entire family there during a Tuesday around 2-3pm and there was a lot of parking and only $5 for all 5 of us. We had such an amazing time, the water was clear and just beautiful, although it was very very cold it felt like it... More

I loved everything about this. It is great for families and friends. There is an area where you can just lay down to soak up the sun and right next to it a very shallow place where children can swim. For the older or young ones get a tube just right outside the park for 5 dollars the whole day... More

I always feel like I have traveled far away to a tropical paradise when I visit Kelly Park. The water and surroundings are beautiful. You walk a short distance and you can jump in at the head of the spring where you are surrounded by huge boulders and then float down the run. There are a few areas that are... More

We got to Kelly Park around 8:45am on a weekday. The park was not too packed but filling up quickly. By 11am, my guess is that it was close to full. It was packed. The water is clear and beautiful. It is also very, very COLD. We did not see any turtles or gators...only fish and a raccoon. We did... More

Truly amazing wish in all my years I visited it before . The water is crystal clear. From Canada and we just don't get water like that . I was a bit scared about bumping into any wildlife . I was on the look out as I drifted in the water . Would love to know if anyone has ever... More

Still the best. Come early during the week and you'll have a blast. We saw a lot of turtles, birds and fish. A small alligator as well.

Spent from 9am to 4pm at the park and it was great! Did not use concessions but they looked good. There was always a young man walking around emptying garbage and picking stuff up. Lots of rangers and staff all around. Camped at Wekiwa this time but will try Kelly park for camping next time.
