We LOVE staying at state parks and Rainbow Springs just added to the reasons why! It was a beautiful park! It doesn't matter if you had an RV or a tent, the sites were so spacious and very nicely maintained. There was still a good community park feel, but with the right amount of privacy. We love getting to see... More

So we waited for the Labor Day weekend to make our reservations. Thanks to hurricane Hermine a lot of people didn't come, so we had the place almost to ourselves and a... More

Very nice and clean. Lots of Pokemon stops and Pokemon. You can enjoy a nice walk then go swimming in nice clear water. Get your kids out of the house and enjoy the great out door. Swimming is so much fun .

Very nice place, river has crystal clear water, it is so clear that you can see the bottom of the river and the fish. We did kayaking too, super fun. You can also swim. Cheap to get in. Great for families.

It was amazing I always go here and always have a great time, it is so beautiful and definitely should be on everyone's bucket list to visit! There is not only swimming but you can kayak/canoe plus you can go on nature walks throughout the whole park!

For a great day you can do both rainbow springs 2 hour tubing and rainbow springs state park. First go to the tubing entrance since it costs $5 to park and then you can bring your receipt to go to the state park for free. The tubing itself costs $15 per person which they give you a tube and drop... More

This place is beautiful ! It's $2.00 to get into the park , this fee allows you to swim. Make sure you bring a floating device to swim ( noodle , float , life vest). The springs are deep, cool temperature & fresh water , so it's hard to float on your own. Arrive early to avoid long lines .

Our last spring of four and it was our favorite! The spring was very deep which the older kids loved. They were able to jump in off the dock which the other springs didn't have. There was also a section a little ways down for younger children to play in and snorkel. There were more fish at this spring than... More
