This is by far one of the nicest springs I have been to. There are nice trails to walk, kayaking, canoeing, and snorkeling available, and plenty of grassy areas and picnic tables. You can also enter the park and tube the Rainbow River. According to park signage this is some of the clearest water in the world. Due to water depth I bring a noodle float for easier swimming. NOTE: Park admission has been raised to $2.00 per person.

These pictures honestly do not do the park justice. It is so beautiful, especially if you go when all of the azaleias are in bloom! The canoe trip you can take down the rainbow is really pretty too!

There is also a nice public beach with a fee, called KP hole that is much more accessible for the little ones. A lot of tubers enter here as well. Love this river!
