Great park!

We come to this park every time we can. It's beautiful to spend a whole day. Arriving early is always a good idea, we were able to see some animals and the water is always fresh.

I went here with a group from my son's school on a Thursday, and wow was it busy! Tubing down the river was so much fun! I can't imagine doing it when there are more people like a typical weekend must be. I will have to contain my trips here to the weekday. What a great time though!

We've been quite a few different springs throughout Florida. For a tubing rub this is one of the BEST I've been to. Lots of picnic areas, pavilions, etc... You do have to show up early or else you get a que pass to make sure you can get in but that's at 1pm. But it's worth it. Lots of lifeguards... More

Family friendly swimming hole is natural Florida at its best. The crystal clear and also cold springs have a current that will carry you and/or your tube down one mile. the leisurely float through Florida's beautiful flora and fauna far exceeds any "Lazy River" at the theme parks. There is a small man made cove for the kiddies where they... More

A perfect place to relax in the cool Florida spring water. The tubing trip is long enough to enjoy but not too long for the younger traveler's. There are plenty of places to stop, rest or get out along the way. The actual park is well maintained and clean. The staff are courteous. Bathrooms are decent and the snack bar... More

I think the best time to go is during the week as the park closes at capacity relatively quickly on weekends. This was my 3rd attempt and finally was able to during a weekday. Well worth it.

What a great place to come to to relax and enjoy yourself. Kelly Park was suggested to us by a local friend and I am very glad we decided to check it out. Kelly Park is a beautiful park, a camping ground and a lazy river. We wanted to check out the lazy river as we had never done that... More

We made a trip there to check it out. Arrived after the gates were closed when park reached capacity. We returned the next day much earlier. Tubes have to be rented outside the park from a vendor on the corner. Parking is ample. Camping available and reasonably priced. The park is roomy and clean. The facilities were standard: changing rooms,... More

This was amazing. Yes the water was cold but it wasn't too unbearable. The water was so clear. Our boys had so much fun tubing and snorkeling all day. The food at the concession was much better than I anticipated and not expensive. This was a very fun and inexpensive weekend for all of us. The best part we stayed... More
