I love this Park! I have been coming here since I was young. I am super paranoid with any bodies of waters in Florida since we have so many gators. This is one of the few places I get into without worry. There are lifeguards...More

Kelly park is actually a natural forest in which a wooden path has been made that enables you to walk over the wet thick forest and marshland. Although you can not bike or do sports in the park, but you can have a fantastic refreshing...More

People come here for tubing and I can see the appeal. Water is very clear and beautiful. Park is pretty all around. However, after the water there is not much. There are hiking trails and they are fine but not particularly mind blowing or fun....More

I gave this park 3 stars only because of the actual spring. The spring is crystal clear, clean, and cool. It had beautiful scenery. The camping though was mediocre at best. They have soooo many rules. You can't pick up dead sticks for the fire,...More

I love this place the water is a perfect temperature on a hot day and floating down the spring with a water proof speaker brings strangers together if you’re playing good music. Definitely recommend bringing food and water shoes.

Yes, the park is open daily 8am - 8pm (water area closes at 7pm). Keep in mind that this week, March 18-22, is spring break for our local schools so the park could reach capacity early, especially on the weekend.

You should not have to get there early since you’re going on an off peak season day where most people would be at work and the kids are in school. You will probably have the place to your self. There might be a few locals... More
