One of my favorite things to do that doesn't involve salt water. The water is cool, clear, and very refreshing on a summer day. I've floated down the run and snorkeled it, but the most relaxing way is in an inner tube. All natural, lazy river. It's really fun in a group of family or friends. Kelly Park is part... More

We went on a Monday after school was back in in Central Florida so there was really no crowd to mention. The facilities (parking, bathrooms and the concessions are solid). The springs themselves are beautiful. Beware that the water is chilly when you first get in, but it is easy to get used to. I'm a bit adventurous and wish... More

Really nice spring run. The water is certainly chilly, around 70 degrees. I like really warm water, so this was very cold to me. Plenty of picnic tables and grills. Rangers and staff around all the time checking on you. Certainly worth the trip.

Spending time with the family here was amazing. We rented inner tubes and float down the river taking in the beautiful sights. Bring a basket of good food, a blanket to lay down on a nice shaded area and relax.

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.

Exceptional trail riding and the guides were awesome. We will definitely plan to ride again when we are back in the area.
