This spring is going to be added to one of our families top favs!! Its beautiful, crystal clear and shallow enough to walk throughout the whole river ride. It was perfect for our younger children and relaxing for the adults. The current is somewhat swift but it makes it fun for the whole family. The only downfalls to the park... More

We had camped here several times in the past as well as when I was young. While swimming in the springs, we observed a family of 5 deer drinking out of the spring, as well as an otter swimming along the bank finding things to eat. Other wild life seen was a flock of wild turkeys running through the parking... More

You can rent a tire just outside the park. The park has very beautiful nature, and everything you need for a day out (restrooms, some food). Near the parking there is a nice beach, and just a short walk away you can start a ride in clean refreshing cool water back to the beach in your rented tire. You share... More

You need to find this gem of a park when you're in the Orlando area.... It's a state park and gets very crowed on the weekends. Try to plan a visit on a weekday, morning early or afternoon. We visited on a Sunday around noon and the park was closed... Too many people, lwe ended up leaving after driving about... More

A beautiful park with shade, swimming area and picnic tables! Cheap to enter, only $5 for the whole family. Remember to rent tubes at the Tube King 1500 ft before entering the park, or bring your own. We heard you had to come very early so we decided to arrive late. Since the park closes at 8 PM and we...

We took other reviewers advice and went on a week day. Arrived at 11:15am. Drove right in, no issues. When we left at 3pm, the park was closed, it was at capacity but wasn't overly crowded. I like that their "at capacity" isn't cramed with people. If you want a tube, you can rent it from the store on the... More

This was my first time here and will be back, very nice spring and my boys loved it, and everyone was very nice, can't wait to go back! We got to see otters, some turtles, and some armadillo's, did not see the alligators thank goodness.

Although the crowds are bad there is plenty of space in the park as well as the waterways to be by yourself. I love snorkeling and photographing here there is a lot of nature in the park.

Very charming inn. Rooms were very clean and the location could not be beat as you're right across from the West entrance to the park. They serve a nice breakfast in the morning and have free wifi. Sally, the property manager, was very helpful and gave great recommendations one of which was the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center across the... More

I came to Kelly Park at 9:15am, traffic is horrible on Saturday morning and learn that their parking lot is small. They need to improve that big time!! Suggest go there 7am and get in the line if I were you. Or wait for 3pm (meaning be there 1:30pm) I'm sure inside of the park will be worth your time... More
