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.

I have always wanted to visit one of the natural springs in Florida. Kelly Park was very affordable at $5 for the carload of my family of four which included an 8 yr. old boy, a 14 yr. old girl and my husband. I think my teen would have enjoyed it more if she had brought a friend or there... More

My husband, me and my in-laws stayed 2 nights at the campground.. I definitely will be going bck and bringing many other family members w/kids. It was beuatiful and the tubing was fantastic. The river is perfect temp w/plenty of lifeguards on duty. The water only came up to my waist and I'm only 4feet 2inches. I tubed down first... More

We camped at Kelly Park for the 4th of July weekend and I expected it to be utter chaos. Surprisingly it was delightful! There are only 26 campsites and my parents and I reserved 2 by phone about two months before the trip. Sites for non-county residents are $23 a night. NO PETS and NO ALCOHOL (bring your Tervis). The... More

The parking lot was laid out very nicely with lots of wooded area area between lanes and lots of picnic tables with grills. Playground was wonderful! We came here for the Rock Springs Run and had a wonderful time! The tube run itself is more like a lazy river but for young children its great! No worries about currents pulling... More

We had a fun time camping at Kelly Park and playing in Rock Springs. The staff was friendly and extremely laid back. Our site, site 17, was the largest and very nice and private. The bathrooms were okay. The showers were older and okay. There was no AC in the bathroom. The bugs were having during our visit so plan... More

Here we are trying to make a last minute trip to a spring and heard that this was the best one to go camping at. So started my research on this campground and came across multiple phone numbers that were no longer in service or you would find one to call and it was a voice recording telling you to... More

I love this park it is great for families. The park has lifeguards and they have rangers that patrol so it is really safe. Food is reasonable if you do not have a large family and the owner is friendly and helpful. My problem is it is to hard to get in and out of the water in the swimming... More

We visit Florida often as most of Our family is here. One day at one of the big parks is enough for us. We Love to do different things and this was fabulous. What's better that floating down a spring on a hot Summer Day. Clear clean water...out with nature. We loved this!

I went with my family, the youngest being 5 and the oldest being 71. The only real complaints are the signs are terrible and it took us a while to figure out how to get to the beginning of the spring. Also, there are so many good hiding places for gators between the weeds in the water and the rocks.... More
