Swim at Rainbow Springs State Park

Originally added by Allison Foyles

State park that offers crystal clear water with beautiful underwater scenery.

If you’re looking for some more adventure other than well known theme parks you might be searching for something Florida is also famous for - their springs. With more than 30 in the state, Rainbow Springs is the 4th largest. Located three miles north of Dunnellon, this state park is open 365 days a year. The swimming hole is located next to a floating dock which is just a quick walk from the visitor center. The water is 72 degrees year round which is the perfect temperature to cool you off after a hot day. Don’t feel like swimming? There are trails with numerous waterfalls nearby. Tubing, kayaking, and canoeing are available as well. Admission is $2.00 per person. 

Directions from I-75: Take exit 352 for FL 40 West. Drive until you reach the end and the park entrance will be located on the left.
