We spent a couple hours here with out four boys 10, 7, 5, 2. The water was quite a shock (even more so to a friend who thought he was jumping into a warm spring! Ha). So the water was cold but what an awesome time! My ten year old thought the snorkeling was awesome (so did I), it was...

We tubed down the rainbow springs river with our family. Ages 6 to 50 and we loved it. The river is so beautiful and peaceful. Plenty of wild life to see from otters to turtles to birds. My son snorkeled most of the way. The river is very clear. We had a bit of trouble as we were exiting due...

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...

We have come many times to Rainbow River State Park during the summer, and the place was totally pack of folks wanting to go tubing down the river. 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...

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...

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 .
