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.

This place was incredible... the water is cold but only for five seconds while you get used to it. We ate, sun bathe and you can easily be there for hours.

Great place to g in the off season. Not too busy and can rent tubes up the hill at the pub. A little restaurant down there would have been awesome!

I’ve never seen the bio luminescence at Kelly Park. Try Indian River lagoon or merrit island & you have to be in a canoe or kayak. It’s beautiful!
