I really fell in love with this place. The water is so refreshing and clean. Felt like we were in another country because it was so unique. The paths were nicely done and easy access to all the different parts. This was an amazing way to spend the day with my honey. I look forward to bringing the kids here.

This springs are a wonderful place to spend the weekend with the family. The springs are ideal for small children and those who do not wish to swim at the other springs which are deeper. Most of the springs are only waist deep. Kelly Park, were the springs are located also features nature trails, camping area, picnic areas, and a... More

If you're going to do the Rock Springs Run, stopping at one of the innertube rental places just outside the park is a MUST. Trust me, that's $5 well spent! A nice, relaxing ride in crystal clear (and cool) spring water, nothing beats it on one of the many hot Florida afternoons! But if you're going on a weekend or... More

Our first time visiting and we absolutely loved it! The entries into the springs, were easy to get to. The water was very clear and cool at first but after the first initial entry, it was wonderful. If you star at the very beginning, it does have some big rocks, hence the name. Not a problem if you have a... More

We took a walk early this week at Rock Springs Run and it was a lot easier to enter. We saw a very long line over the weekend when we passed by and that was at 8:00 in the morning so plan on lines if you are running late. I think they probably turned some cars away on that day.... More

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
