The water was bone-chiling cold, but it definitely cooled you off after tracking through the park on a hot, Florida summer day. The water was so clear and so blue. You could see all the way down to the sand bottom and there were a few fish to put the icing on the cake for this nature experience. Even on... More

First of all, we arrived after fifteen minutes if searching for the entrance. No signs at the first one where you cannot get in, so good luck to you! When we did finally find it, we were greeted by a friendly ranger in the office, but I wish she had told us a few things. Number one, you do not... More

Rainbow Springs has a beautiful campground with large sites. You can swim, float on a tube, canoe, kayak or boat on the river. The water is crystal clear so snorkling along your way is great to see all the fish and you might get to see an alligator or two sunning himself. Enjoy all the activities in the cool water... More

This is a place for nature lovers. Need to come in early. Gate closes after maximum capacity is reached. Pavilions are available for big groups. For small groups, bring your own shade and extra chairs although open picnic tables are available. Bring something to grill. Bring ice... Lots of it during very hot season. Do canoeing, swimming and hiking.!

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.
