Rock Springs is a wonderful place to spend a leisure day with your family. Swimming, picnic areas and gliding down the run on a tube, it's all available. The water is crystal clear, but cold. Of course on a hot afternoon it can certainly be a welcome relief from the Florida heat. Rocks at the head of the run and... More

Beautiful weather on a peaceful Wednesday afternoon. Hardly anyone here today. The water is amazingly clean and clear. A gentle float was just what we needed. Beautiful area with many picnic spots. Don't miss this when you're in the area.

This has a very good atmosphere and clean place to visit more often as it has been kept in good condition overall.

The run is in Kelly Park and you can rent a tube at a place about half a mile before entrance to park or take your own. Crystal clear refreshing water and a good run though not long which ends in pool area where you can swim. Great for kids. Plenty of room for picnics or just relaxing although it's... More

It is hard for me to believe that this place is within 30 minutes of Orlando. The springhead is one of the prettiest I've ever seen. The run is just beautiful. Do yourself a favor: leave the park and go just up the road to Kings Landing. Rent a canoe and spend the day on the REAL Rock Springs Run,... More

A wonderful place to float on crystal clear water. We saw lots of fish and turtles along the way. Very relaxing and fun for the whole family.

We rented a canoe for the three of us. We are all inexperienced and had a difficult time navigating. A fairly large alligator swam just in front of our canoe and shortly after we lost control of the canoe and capsized. Recovered most of our items, but lost one shoe and a pair of shorts. Had a difficult time turning... More

Wow! I had forgotten how much I love this paddle. It is 8 1/2 miles to Wekiva Island Marina from King's Landing in Apopka. Great way to spend the day enjoying natural Florida.

We were visiting my sister who lives in Floirida and she had been told about the springs. It's a fabulous and not very costly day out. Be sure to pick up ur tyres for floating at one of the places at the side of the road before you get to the springs themselves .make sure you can transport them down... More

We visited on a Wednesday morning so it was quiet and not very crowded. It was awesome because we almost had the whole river to ourselves. You have to walk all the way to the very head of the river, and then get in your tube or I would recommend snorkeling as well. As we floated I saw two different... More
