We stayed one night. Great place for RVs but not the "camping" feeling you get other places. Clean, great bathrooms with laundry areas outside. There's a wonderful place to put your kayak in & I'm sure the tubing must be awesome. It was a chilly & windy day when we were there, but so glad we paddled. It was beautiful.... More

Camped in Motorhome here for 5 nights. Be aware campground has separate entrance from state park. Really nice spacious campsites, well spaced with vegetation between each site. Almost felt like you were alone in the woods. Full hookups, nicely laid out. Fire pits at each site. Great hiking. Also visited state park-take your tag for free entrance. Nice walking areas...

Rainbow springs is a very good state park and the only thing that kept it from being an excellent state park is the distance between the RV Camping and the spring and waterfalls. The Spring, River and Waterfalls are beautiful and this as I said above would have easily been an excellent park. Because of the distance between the RV... More

Clean campground. Friendly, helpful staff. Looked like a great campground for the RV set, but not so much for tent campers. The tent-specific sites have zero shade, zero privacy, and are on gravel. You will be pitching your tent on a gravel pad out in the open, and the rangers will make you move your tent if you try to... More

First time visiting the state park for a campaign weekend, I was so pleasantly surprised by how well kept the campground was. Paved spot was a plus for us and full hookups make my life easier. The facilities were clean (bathrooms and playground) pools were closed, I think they have been for a while. The river edge has a beach... More

We stopped into Rainbow Springs SP on a Labor Day drive we took and we absolutely loved it. Being Labor Day, it was obviously crowded but the folks working at the park were friendly, the park was clean, and the natural flora and fauna were not to be missed. It's one of the cheapest state parks we've been to here... More

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
