We arrived at 10am on a Saturday and the parking lot was closed for tubing. We wound up going to the headsprings and picnicing there with friends and swimming. It was really beautiful and chilly! When we were done there, we decided to go up and see if they were letting any more cars in (around 130pm) and they were!... More

My family and I have had amazing experiences exploring these natural beauties in Florida. It seems to me that a lot of people don't know that the springs exist or do not want to give them a chance. Well they are missing out. Rainbow Springs is one of the best! And safe and fun for kids! Parking is a bit... More

We had a great day tubing at Rainbow Springs. I had felt anxious before going thinking the family may be separated whilst tubing or that it may be difficult or was not well managed. None of this turned out to be the case and it was a lovely peaceful afternoon. I was also worried about floating to the side and... More

We spent the afternoon tubing down the Rainbow River and it was beautiful! The water was clear and cool and nature surrounded us. The whole trip was approximately 2 hours long. We will definitely return. There are picnic tables and bathroom facilities, as well as helpful and friendly staff.

Blue crystal clear water inviting you to jump in. The swimming area is large and has good access although you do swim at your own risk and may encounter an alligator. I was there early in the morning but I would imagine it got quite packed later in the day. Good hiking trails which cover about 3 miles. Pretty butterfly... More

Really enjoyed this park. The water is incredible - crystal clear, like you are looking through glass! I enjoyed a kayak down the river and the water was very inviting as I kayaked under the hot sun. Lots of people swimming and tubing around me. I was tempted to jump in. However, when we got back to the swimming area,... More

The first time I saw Rainbow Springs I was stunned that places like this actually exist. It's the first spring I visited upon moving to Florida, and after living here for five years, I am still taken aback by the beauty of this place. The water is sooo cold, but also highly refreshing in the summer. Definitely take a walk... More

My family and I really enjoyed this place. It's clean, fun, and visually stunning. The snack bar could use some help. That's my only negative though. They just have vending machine type food. They even come out still in the plastic wrap.

We stayed the weekend camping and going down the river. We brought our own rafts but if you want to take the tram back it's $11 per person. I would recommend paying $5 to park the car at the rafting enterance and getting a ride from a friend back to the launch. Tubing down is amazing, blows ginnie spring s... More

This is a beautiful place, the springs are just stunning. It's amazing to see how clear the water is! The park is well managed, there is a small entry fee, and then you have bathrooms, picnic tables, BBQ's, walking trails, hiking trails, waterfalls. You could also rent canoes. Overall it's a nice place to go with the family and spend... More
