This "river" is just beautiful. I suggest to come early when the park opens because it may get full and they close when they reach max capacity, but do re-open later in the day. They have grills so you can bring your own food and they also has restrooms with showers.The water is freezing so I suggest jumping right in!... More

You just can not beat the value of these parks. The lazy river was incredible and so relaxing with a place to buy food if you do not bring your won. I picked some on the way on a local supermarket and just relaxed at the place. You can hire the inflatables if you do not remember to bring one.... More

We spent the afternoon here over Christmas holidays and brought our nieces to swim and play. While playing in the playground area in the mulch surrounding the jungle gym equipment they were severely bitten by fire ants and required medical attention. Shame on the County/City for allowing an unsafe playground, not to mention the fees collected for that privilege.

I love this place. I've lived in Florida my whole life and I am finally exploring the places I've always wanted to see. This one was one my boyfriend and I ran into and it was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. We came to this park on a Sunday to go into Rock Springs which... More

When you're looking for a break from the theme parks or wonder what the locals do for fun - come to Kelly Park! We visited mid-week in early November (way off season) and could not find enough wonderful things to say. The water was chilly but the sun was warm enough to make swimming pleasant. It felt like we had... More

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
