My wife and I wanted to check out this spring after numerous friends had talked of its photo opportunities. We were not disappointed! The swimming part down by the park looks fun for kids or families, but the spring run from the head waters is a blast! Just be sure and bring a snorkel and mask Everyone else was just... More

Our group of 14 had a great experience here. We ranged in age from 2 -52. The run was beautiful and relaxing. The trail back to the start of the springs was well-kept. We tubed down the run over and over again. Our trip was mid-week, there was hardly anyone at the park.

This is a beautiful spring in Apopka which offers a tremendous family value in an incredibly gorgeous natural setting . There is a lot of wildlife and we had an Autre accompanying us while we were floating while we were floating down the spring. It is advisable to wear some type of water shoe as the bottom is a mix...

We had not visited Rock Springs for 20 years but thought it would be a great experience for our 8 year old twin granddaughters to experience. The $5 gate admission, which included parking, was a great relief after 'theme park gouging"! The spring was as clear and clean as 20 years ago. The ride down the run In the inner... More

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
