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

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
