Visited Kelly Park with family including grandparents, parents, and children ages 8-17. SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. Plenty of shade, water to explore, or water to just take a dip in. Bathrooms, concession stand, outdoor bbqs. If visiting on WEEKEND (especially in summer)- You must arrive very VERY EARLY 9:00ish latest, I would suggest arriving by 7:30/8:00. They close park when they... More

We discovered Kelly Park for the first time this vacation and it is a hidden gem. For holiday makers from the Uk, this is well worth the one hour drive from the theme park areas to find a piece of real Florida. Signposts to the park are almost non existent so you will need to use Gps but it is... More

Went for a day out on a Monday, the Park was so quiet! Bit of confusion as to where we hired the tubes but they're about 500ft from the outside of the park, next to the main road (looks like a shack). For $5 tube hire per person and $5 for parking for 4 people, it was amazing value! Beautiful... More

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.
