I love this place! My family has been going to Rock Springs for generations. My grandmother took my mom, I took my children, and my son took my granddaughter. Taking a canoe down the run to Wekiva is a treat for the soul. There are a few places to take a canoe out and have a picnic under the trees... More

Very awesome place to take the kids. Might want to try going down in a tube though- certain areas of the spring are very rocky and shallow and if you're not careful you can really bruise yourself. Wear water shoes if you have them. Water is crystal clear. Feels like the fountain of youth!

After spending most of our day at Weikiwa Springs we found out Kelly Rock was right down the street so we went to explore the park. It was a very nice area. The water is beautiful and the springs are very well kept. My husband and I love to do the springs and our kids love it so we will... More

the things to know is if you start at one end or the other it is 8.5 miles or a little more. There are 3 safe places to stop about half way, campgrounds and they are marked.The rest of it is park land and old Florida forest & swamp. Beautiful but not the safest place to get out of your... More

Amazing to find such a beautiful natural treasure in the midst of a huge population area. My wife and I rented a canoe from King's Landing. They offer a very convenient way to take the trip by picking you up at 4 pm. Before you embark be sure to take advantage of the cooler they have labeled "Free beer/water." (good... More

We canoed here from Wekiwa Springs. The water was totally clear. We really enjoyed it and will go again...but this time bring insect repellent, there were many horseflies out!

Gthe park is ok and the trails are more of sand roads. If you are in the area some of the other parks have much nicer trails for hiking. Try Wekiwa Springs or Lower Wekiva instead.

This spot is perfect for day hiking and swimming in the springs. Clean and well kept. If you want to get away from all of the crazy of Orlando, this state park is just a short drive and well worth it.

My 12 year old son and myself had a great time kayaking through the springs. We took a cooler with water with some snacks and stopped at different areas along the way. We saw so much wildlife, including a gator at the end of the run! I can't wait to go back.

We had such a fun day here, there were 3 adults and 4 kids in our group. You can't find a more economical day trip anywhere else. So worth it and can't wait to go back. Rent tubes outside the park and pay by the car load. The water is crystal clear, cold and refreshing. Tubing down the springs was... More
