I went while visiting my parents and was blown away by this. Went on a canoe down the river and really enjoyed the houses on the water and the fish swimming below. There was a summer camp that came after an hour or so of us being there which ruined the experience, but on an off season day I would... More

Where to begin. Loud sexually explicit music blaring EVERYWHERE. Literally people walking hiking trails blaring rap music. The only place to snorkel is when you are out on your kayak. We brought ours, it would have been nice for signage to point this out. In stead,we kayaked two hours, carried kayaks clear back to picnic area, went to snorkel only... More

We camped with two families and eight kids amongst us. Oldest being 12. We found the campground very quiet in the evenings and really great for a quick get a way from city life. The Bathrooms are very, very clean and the springs were breathtaking.

What an incredible find! We wanted to kayak as a couple, but were traveling with a group. This place was recommended by locals. The park is gorgeous. I live surrounded by national forestry in Indiana, and love state parks. This was an incredible find. Incredible reasonable for a 2 hour kayak rental. The water was absolutely clear and we were...

We are Floridians that decided to show our kids something other than Disney and Beaches. We took the 2 hour float down the Rainbow River and it was fantastic!!! The kids were so excited to go down a real lazy river (not one in a water park)! You float past riverfront homes, and through crystal clear water. After our float... More

Stayed in a camper for 3 days, had family join us later in. The park is very well kept. The water is unbelievable, the only thing that I did not like is that to go to other areas of the park you have to drive. However, the driving is worth it. The camping are is clean and very family oriented.

The tubing was great but be aware. Everything was going great during hour 1 of a 2 hr river tube trip. It was a beautiful, sunny day. Suddenly the worst and loudest lightning storm I've ever seen starts up with nowhere to hide. Luckily, there are some homes on the right side of the river. We found a boat garage... More

I am a native Floridian and have visited many of our state parks during my lifetime. I can honestly say Rainbow Springs is the most beautiful of them all. The Florida highlands provide a hilly backdrop for this tropical oasis. From th moment you walk through the rock wall entry you will be enchanted. The jewel in the crown is... More

Our camping trip was very good here. If wanting to tube the tube entrance is at th camping ground. Take one car and park it down at the parking lot for the tram which is abouta mile down the road. Then come back to camping ground and put in at tube launch.I could not justify paying $15 a person to... More
