A nice, relaxing spring with plenty of natural things to do. Before you get to the park, stop by one of the places on Rock Springs Rd. and rent an inner tube. TOTALLY worth the $5-$6. You can float down the entire Rock Springs Run and your own pace. On hotter days (and weekends) the park can fill up, so... More

This is one of the spots where locals go to get out of the heat. I used to go a lot more but my boy has grown up and moved out but he still likes to visit when he comes home. Get a tube and enjoy the day, take a picnic basket and a nice book to really relax for... More

Show up early to get it the park! Talk about a unique spring experience! There is a paved path from the beginning of the spring headwaters to end, so you can literally do as many loops as you want. I think the headwaters are the most interesting because it's deep, the limestone formations are interesting and there's just a lot... More

I looked up cool things to do in Florida and this park came up. I was not disappointed, and neither was my family, with Kelly Park! It cost $5 for our car of four people, only $3 for two people, to enter. When we arrived at 9am we had the park to ourselves. We brought our own goggles to "snorkel"... More

We have come here a few times during the last year. The park can get extremely crowded during the summer. This time of year, the tourist crowds are gone and the locals can enjoy it a lot. There is a lot for the family to do.

We took a day away from the parks to drive to the park and swim the springs. Was week of Christmas and place was quiet. 68 degree water was great and crystal clear. Teenage boys had fun and we stayed a few hours before kayaking nearby river. Would suggest to all - take food as there are plenty of picnic... More

I love this park for a number of reasons. In the cooler months, during the weekdays, it is quiet with few visitors and the beauty of what was once the Florida before development is well preserved. Some people will stop to enjoy their lunch and recharge their batteries. While in the warm and hot days, people of the area flock... More

We camped out here for two nights. It was a little noisy, as college students seem to gravitate to this spot. However, the grounds were well kept and the staff was excellent. We will return--with earplugs for another weekend adventure.

Rent a tube or bring your own. Kelly park is a full day of picnicking, grilling and floating down the lazy river in a tube. You can find sharks teeth, hike or just have fun with family and friends
