Owner description: Park With Beach And Restrooms For Entering Rainbow River
Reviewed June 20, 2013

The section of the Rainbow River north of the county park is worth exploring. There is a $5 fee to launch from this park, but it is worth it. The workers at the park are very helpful and will answer all your questions willingly (Ph. 352-489-3055). Bring a pair of goggles to explore under water. The sights are impressive. From the park you can travel up to Devil's elbow and see the under water caves--which is an easy 15 minute paddle. You can go further up to the area referred to as the blue shallows, which is also fun to snorkel. The water is chilly, so you may want a wet suit if you are going to be in the water for a long period of time. They sell pre-made sandwiches, which are basic but hit the spot after snorkeling in the cold water for any length of time.

More fun when you go to Rainbow Springs and tube down to KP Hole or right on to the Withlacoochee. These are very nice places to visit when in Citrus or Marion Counties.

Very well maintained area. There is a $5.00 fee to get in. The wildlife is plentiful. But there are no manatee's on the Rainbow River, only the Crystal River. (They dam the area off from the Manatees. They will eat the filtering grasses like cotton candy.
