I have come here a number of times, and being European I am happy going in the winter when it is 'cooler' - this is great because it means it is quiet, the summer is totally manic! You can hire giant tyres to sit in and float down the run, or you can swim, or snorkle and just enjoy the... More

I really love Kelly Rock. It is so beautifull and yet so close to Kissimee. It offers a wonderfull place to relax from those busy themapark days. I could fill my entire vacation with parks like this. The water is cristal clear, it's really clean (so is the entire park). There is loads of wildlife from turtles to racoons, birds,... More

$3 admission for one person into the park. Tons of parking on a weekday and just a short walk to the "beach." The area has benches and plenty of grass for you to spread out. A few people were suntanning with towels. The head of the springs is a 5 minute walk from where you leave your belongings and you... More

A great place to visit if you can get there very early. The park unfortunately only lets a certain amount of people into the park. If you do happen to get in, the park is great. Take an inner tube and float down a crystal clear, cold spring. Great for kids and adults. I suggest camping at the park nearby... More

My wife and I wanted to check out this spring after numerous friends had talked of its photo opportunities. We were not disappointed! The swimming part down by the park looks fun for kids or families, but the spring run from the head waters is a blast! Just be sure and bring a snorkel and mask Everyone else was just... More

Our group of 14 had a great experience here. We ranged in age from 2 -52. The run was beautiful and relaxing. The trail back to the start of the springs was well-kept. We tubed down the run over and over again. Our trip was mid-week, there was hardly anyone at the park.

This is a beautiful spring in Apopka which offers a tremendous family value in an incredibly gorgeous natural setting . There is a lot of wildlife and we had an Autre accompanying us while we were floating while we were floating down the spring. It is advisable to wear some type of water shoe as the bottom is a mix...

We had not visited Rock Springs for 20 years but thought it would be a great experience for our 8 year old twin granddaughters to experience. The $5 gate admission, which included parking, was a great relief after 'theme park gouging"! The spring was as clear and clean as 20 years ago. The ride down the run In the inner... More

I really fell in love with this place. The water is so refreshing and clean. Felt like we were in another country because it was so unique. The paths were nicely done and easy access to all the different parts. This was an amazing way to spend the day with my honey. I look forward to bringing the kids here.
