I'm always on the lookout for new adventures and springs in Florida. We originally went to the place where they rented kayaks and tubes before the entrance for the park. They had sold out right before we got there. But it worked out better because we didn't want to go down the 2 hour river as I had already done... More

This place is absolutely beautiful, it has lots of interesting fish amongst other lively creatures. Yes the water is cold 72 or lower, come on people it's a spring, it can't be warm, but the view it's incredible, keep in mind that the tubing is at a different location from the state park, and there are two separate entrances for...

if you are taking the tubing trip, beware!!!!! The four hour tubing trip is exhausting, cold and exhilarating. It can be fun, but it can be a disaster if you are not prepared. Bring sunscreen and leave everything else in your car. 4 hours on this trip will burn you up. THE TWO HOUR trip is more realistic, but at... More

Our family of four had a great time tubing down the river. Would recommend tying up together if you have younger ones. We spied many birds and one alligator. Nature's beauty and great family time -- nothing better!

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
