The park will be packed, so arrive EARLY! Early in the day, we had a lot of fun tubing and snorkeling the run, but it got really crowded and cloudy water as the day went on. Our early runs included observing a deer comfortably coming to the river for a drink and several birds. It was near the end of... More

Rock Springs is one of Florida's most lovely, pumping 26,000 gals. per minute from its limestone base into a succession of lime rock pools eventually into two large swimming areas. A volleyball court, concession building, numerous BBQ pits and plentiful trails make this a wonderful destination for a family, couple or by yourself, especially if you enjoy nature photography. If... More

We loved our stop here... great swimming and wading, very relaxing, and the kids loved playing volleyball too! Nothing fancy, just a great kid friendly place!

Fabulous place to go. Hardly anyone here which was a bonus. Crystal clear water, warm too on a February afternoon. We saw otters, deer and turtles. It's only an easy 15 min tube float but we did that 6 times as it was so nice. $5 entrance for all of us... bargain!

So beautiful ! Drove a little over an hour and was definitely worth it. Nice big spacious park, has a play ground and a couple swing sets placed near pavilions. The water is warmer at the springs than it is at the beach right now for sure (January) we went yesterday (Sunday) and not even 25 cars were there. I... More

This park is SO beautiful in design and the water is gorgeous! There are quite a few rocks in the river if you choose to navigate the whole stream, so I would advise an inner tube, especially for kids. The water is a cool 70 degrees, and there are plenty of trails to explore.

Beautiful park, with everything you need. Concession stand, showers, covered picnic pavilions, sandy beach entrance into the spring. Camping or day trip. Lots of shade. Very clean. Safe, shallow, crystal clear, 72 degree water. Choice of tubing on a moderate current for 3/4 of a mile or swimming in a sandy bottom, open spring. The tubing area is separate from... More

Just got back from this park. I expected more people for a 80 degree day on a Saturday. We rented tubes right before the park for $7.00 a tube for the day. I thought it might be cold - middle of November, but the water was around 72 degrees. We saw turtles, a deer, some fish, and an otter. It... More
