I have visited Orlando with the family many times and this time wanted to experience some off the beaten track places that locals visit and also are closer to nature. Kelly Park is simply a wonderful venue. Ideal for swimming, tubing and barbecuing all in a natural environment and with plenty of shade and space. Make sure you bring tubes... More

A truly relaxing day in the hot Florida sun. So bring your lunch or snacks (or buy from the concession stand), some beach chairs and some tubes to float on! Tubes can also be rented for a reasonable price about a half a mile before the entrance of the park. The water is always a constant 72 degrees F, because... More

An experience not to be missed. Rent tubes just before you reach the park and put them on the roof of the car as they are very bulky. They are heavy enough to stay there if you drive slowly. Tubes cost $3 -$5 there or take your own. Go to the head of the spring and float slowly down the... More

This place was amazing! We took our four kids aged 5, 7, 10 and 12 and bought floats a Target for $4 each (you can also rent tubes outside park entrance but we wanted them for another trip too). We got there nice and early (10am) and got a great parking spot, went down to the lagoon and jumped in... More

My 11 year old loves this park. You can camp, take a tube down the lazy river. The swim area is kept cut back and rimmed with concrete. You can also canoe outside of the swim area to a connecting past down the river.

My husband & I took our college age son & his girlfriend. We left early (6am) to get at the park by 8:30. We stopped outside the park to get our tubes, $5 a tube for the day. They wanted to hold my drivers license but I refused. They settled on my warehouse card. We drove right up to the... More

Deliciously beautiful water! Great for a short day or long day. Fantastic for swimming and if you are in the mood for a shady day out in Central Florida. It must be the quietest place when you go an it's empty. I love it when I have the river all to myself. If you like the crowds definitely go on... More

You got to get here early because this place fills up fast (it is so worth it to wake up early!). Beautiful clear water for swimming and tubing. You can bring your own floats or rent a tube up the street. I would recommend wearing water shoes because if you decide to walk up the river(which is against the current),... More

We took our two young children here for a day and what a day it was! My two year old son didn't much like traveling in a rubber ring but was really happy playing in the shallow water and on the beach area. My four year old daughter thought going down the river was just fantastic and spent the whole... More

At about a 40 minute drive from the buzz of Orlando you will find this quiet, beautiful gem seemingly in the middle of nowhere land. I recall that our GPS went crazy and we could not find the exit right away. We decided to get off on Ocoee Apopka Road while driving north on state road 429. From there it... More
