What a great group at Nature Quest! Today my family was stranded in Rainbow Springs Park. This was our first trip to Rainbow River, and we were not given adequate directions about the route from the staff at the KP Hole. Although it was not Nature Quest's responsibility to help us, Tram Driver Jim Free stepped in to save our... More

These people have a smooth operation and a beautiful attraction. The girl who got us set answered all of our questions with a smile, offered ideas, and was generally very on top of things (while she didn't have a line, I saw her diligently mopping the floor). The bathroom was also very well-kept. We arrived early on a weekday just... More

Great experience! Totally worth the money to float and relax. Jim, the tram driver, was especially awesome! Thanks for your help that day Jim!

My girlfriend and I loved everything about this place. The crystal clear river is filled with life and is so refreshing. While tubbing down the river, I dropped our phone into the water along with our keys... It's worth the $5 for them to keep your keys. Anyways, Margaret was amazing. She helped us find help and kept us hydrated.... More

Just got back from a tubing trip on the Rainbow River, via Nature Quest in Dunnellon. Everything about our excursion was terrific. We arrived at 8:15 on a Friday morning, paid $5.00/car to enter the state park and parked in an empty lot at the Nature Quest facility. Walked right up to the window and purchased our tickets ($15.00/each). The... More

My daughter picked Rainbow Springs for our family getaway and we are so glad she did. The tube company employees were all so nice and helpful. Didn't realize that they would hold our car keys until the cashier asked if we needed them to. The tubing experience was amazing. The river is so crystal clear but be warned the water... More

We had such a wonderful trip! It is $5 to get into the park per car and $15 per person to float the river! I recommend getting there early during the summer! A must do if you are in the Dunnelon area !! Happy floating!!

The 2 owners are about as dumb and clueless as the little teens they hire also. The workers take more responsibility and could run the operation better than the owners. Last time i was there the lady owner (Mrs.Tere) was the only one in the building with at least 20+ of the customers keys and personal belongings in there with... More

They completely ignored us for ten minutes after we asked for help in making a decision of whether or not we were allowed to bring an extra floating cooler to store belongs- not drinks, in. The lady, who seemed to be the manager, could not make the decision, she was very unhelpful, all we wanted was a yes or a... More
