Last year we paddled kayaks up to the park, and this year we drove into the park and walked the trails, and Jaclyn took a dip with the alligators. They have nice waterfalls to enjoy and the water is so clear, down to 275 feet! Hopefully this is a tradition and they continue to

1st time at Rainbow Springs State Park The ranger at check-in was not very helpful at all. We were told no tubes available to float down the river. Privately owned business offered tubes and shuttle. Beautiful scenery and great experience to float down and be brought back

Absolutely beautiful park with nice swimming area. Crystal clear water. Clean restrooms. Opportunities for kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding. BUT.... tranquility ruined by large party & LOUD MUSIC and possible alcohol. The loud music is the reason for not being 5 star

I'm not sure if there is a closer one. But its about 20-30 minutes give or take for weather and/or traffic.

I"m afraid i can't answer that. We went for the sole purpose of kayaking and we didn't really check out the campsites.

There is a shelter to have a party. They could certainly swim there, but the the canoeing and tubing I have not done.
