We saw deer and some fish. No alligators or snakes, but there are signs posted to beware (like every park... More

We just visited the hot springs for a half day and found it to be lovely and relaxing. You can stop at the corner burger bar joint and rent tubes for $7 each and buy sandwiches (or you can bring in your own floaties). We arrived at 1pm and had no problem getting in (but it was a thurs--maybe the... More

Nice place to spend with family away from large crowds and chaos. A natural beauty...unspoiled by tourism and commercial interests. One of life's simple and low cost pleasures to enjoy with your loved ones.

My wife and I visited today and were not really impressed. Tables and grills not close to swimming and long walk to the main swimming area. There is a small swim area near the parking but very crowded with kids. I like some of the other springs in the area much better.

We stopped out here to experience some of Florida's nature and it was great! It was a little too cold for us to go tubing, but we got great pictures and loved checking out the park.

The park will be packed, so arrive EARLY! Early in the day, we had a lot of fun tubing and snorkeling the run, but it got really crowded and cloudy water as the day went on. Our early runs included observing a deer comfortably coming to the river for a drink and several birds. It was near the end of... More

Rock Springs is one of Florida's most lovely, pumping 26,000 gals. per minute from its limestone base into a succession of lime rock pools eventually into two large swimming areas. A volleyball court, concession building, numerous BBQ pits and plentiful trails make this a wonderful destination for a family, couple or by yourself, especially if you enjoy nature photography. If... More

We loved our stop here... great swimming and wading, very relaxing, and the kids loved playing volleyball too! Nothing fancy, just a great kid friendly place!
