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 .

We loved this park!!! The grounds are beautiful!!! There is plenty of places to sit and lots of shade the waterfalls are gorgeous. They have a gift shop and a snack bar. There are a few pavilions for families to use, I'm not sure if they are first come or if you have to make a reservation. The only reason...

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...

We had a great time but it was extremely crowded. We sent to go to the tubing entrance and were turned away at 0800. Also the state park slows people to smoke and play music as loud as they want. Great scenery and experience but they need to raise the price and tighten up on the rules.

Great experience! We decided to go tubing first and come to find out that is the best deal because you can enter the main spring for free once you have paid to tube. If you have enough time on your hands definitely go tubing first which will be about two hours down the river. I suggest to eat afterwards and...

We visited back in June and we are so happy we found this place. There is a lot to do here and they allow dogs in the park! (BIG plus for us) The natural springs are a real treat to swim in after being out in the scolding sun all day. There are nature trails with small waterfalls, kayaking, canoeing,...

5 stars! Very fun place to visit for everyone. It is a lil bit of a drive, I live in Tampa and its about an 1hr 30 mins to get there. Make sure you leave early if your going on the weekends. Tubes and parking spots are limited. If you bring alcohol, try to hide it in a diff container...

This is a beautiful park! There are nature trails, Swimming in the spring, Kayak and canoe rentals as well as tubing. You can rent tubes for $15.00 for a two hour tubing excursion. They also had a little cafe I am not sure if it is just snacks or if they had lunch. There was also a little store but...

Beautiful crystal clear spring in Florida. This was an amazing experience and my only regret is that I didn't get to check out the Rainbow river . I will definitely be back. However my experience at the rainbow spring park was brief but great. As I jumped into the water I pray to God my lips didn't turn purple due...
