I happen to live in the area so I've been multiple times. I always love going to the springs. I like the fact that there's a leisurely area and an area with a faster current. It's a very fun thing to do with your family and kids usually love. Just be ready for very cold water, and it is a... More

Hire a tube for a few dollars just outside the park and take them down the run. It's a gentle running stream that takes you from the top of the run back down to Kelly Park Springs, in the main pool. Loads of fun, especially for kids!

This is a clear spring that you drift down for about a quarter of a mile. The beginning of the spring is a little deeper with a few rocks, but most of the spring is waist deep with a swimming area about halfway through.When we were there we saw fish, turtles, and even a deer grazing on the side of...

The park opens @ 8am, however, ya really want to do your best to get in line as early as 7:00am if you can, especially on summer holiday weekends as the park fills up fast and you will actually be turned away when they are at capacity. Admission charge is $3 for a carload of up to 8. Coolers are... More

Oh how I love Kelly Park! It's so beautiful. You can Bring your own tubes or rent them outside the park. You start tubing at the mouth of the spring,go all the way to the end, then take a short walk and start all over again. Perfect size park for my kids ages 5-8. We did see an alligator up... More

We just went here Saturday, got there early only to find that the water was closed because they saw an alligator. REALLY, in Florida I would be surprised NOT to see one. You could walk all around the water but not get in, gators come onto land too. The place is really nice, but I think it should be the... More

Very cheap to enter and free parking. The natural spring head provides a great tubing experience and the water is shallow so suitable for all. You can take your own tubes or hire them just outside the park. You can take your own picnic, buy food on site or take food to grill on the BBQ's which are spread throughout... More

This is really the most beautiful place to swim in Florida spring water we have found so far during our travels through Florida. We have visited many other springs north of Orlando but this is the most beautiful one. It is also a good place for children as you have a clean area with a good overview to monitor your... More

The park rangers keep this place up and clean. I remember coming here a lot as a kid and I loved it and I still love it to this day. The fees are fair and reasonable considering they keep it clean. I think the hardest part is finding out the days they are open cause the Florida site says only... More
