Spent an entire day with my 12yr old and my 10 yr old and they still talking about the park and the water. Great to see always staff and rangers around. It was busy but it felt ok, not super crowded. Great Place to visit!! Would recommend to anyone.

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

This is a spring run that is part of a County Park called Kelly Park. The advantage to parks belonging to the County vs State is that: a) there are way way way more parking spots in County parks b) there are life guards c) there are tons of picnic facilities d) there is a nice campground that you can...

My wife and I went and we both loved it! Rent a tube near the entrance of this beautiful park BEFORE you go in. The location is spectacular and the lazy natural spring fed & crystal clear river which flows down volcanic rock formations is simply stunning. The water temp is also very pleasant. The setting looks kinda Jurrasic Park-ish.... More

Far from the tourist area, floating down a lazy crystal clear shallow river is something you will always remember. It's the best inexpensive thing you can do if you want pure pleasure in a peaceful setting. Our guests love going there.

I did not do the float trip; rather, my trip started at the Wekiwa Springs launch point then I paddled up the run to the first camp site. The water was a little lower than expected but still manageable. It was not hard to tell I was under the influence of a different set of springs once I turned left... More

Let me begin by explaining just what the Rock Springs Run is. This may sound confusing but it is really not. In Orange County there is a park called Kelly Park or Rock Springs. This is a county park and inside of the park is a spring, Rock Springs, which is the headwater and source of the Rock Springs Run.... More

Refreshing, relaxing & amazing. Been here 2 times and loved it......will be back again soon. Up to 8 in car admission only $5 and tube rental at Ron's is $3 per tube for day. VERY AFFORDABLE!
