The river is amazing but they raised the price to $10 to launch your tubes off their dock. We didnt use their facilities otherwise. Little over priced but it is what it is. The float down river is amazing otherwise. Crispy clean water.

We had a very wonderful experience putting in our own Kayaks at KP Hole. The employs were very nice and helpful, the bathrooms were very clean and big enough to accommodate all the people there.

Very nice to have a bathroom with large changing stalls and showers. Makes it easy to spend the day on the river when you know you've got what you need right there.

Wonderful place for swimming, kayaking, tubing all things water related. If you put in at KP Hole a nice stopping point 3.5 miles down is Swampy's restaurant for lunch. Water in Rainbow Springs is crystal clear you'll see lots of fish, turtles and birds
