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

ATTENTION TOURISTS...If you want to see what the real Florida looks like then put the address in your GPS and get over to Rock Springs. The water is spring fed at a rate of 26,000 gallons per minute at around 75 degrees or so. Canadians will swim in it all year...Floridians mostly in the summer. Either way, it is spectacular....

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
