Lots of swimming and wading in the 72 degree waters of Rainbow Springs Run or if you prefer rent a kayak or tube and lazily float down the river. Also visit the nearby spring head and walk through the gardens or down the nature trail. PROS: Easy access to the water for swimming or wading CONS: It is a little bit of a drive to g... more

Nice park. Spring head waters is several miles away. Camp stay gets free entrance to Springs. Full hookups. My iPhone 8 had one bar on T-Mobile, streamed YouTube TV with no problems. Wife’s iPhone 6 Plus had intermittent coverage.

This is a pretty nice campground, with decently spaced level sites. Some sites (like ours) were mostly open with no trees or privacy, while some others were heavily wooded and you can't see your neighbor. If you're visiting for tubing down the river you'll find this a great place to stay. However we found the campground to be a bit far... more

“Great River and Park, So-So Campground”

Reviewed Sep 20, 2017

Overall Rating

I stayed 2 nights at Rainbow Springs Campground in March of 2013 and although it wasn't too bad for tent camping, I felt it was really better for RV's because many sites were in full sun and there isn't much privacy (especially on the inner circle). I'm giving it a 4 for noise only because we could hear the generators of the RVs and so... more

Large, private sites with level gravel pads. The outer loop sites are wooded and shaded and the inner loop sites are sparsely shaded. Quiet and has a swimming area on the river within walking distance from the campsites. The spring head area is separate from the campground, about 5 miles away, and on the other side of the river.

“Great place to stay and explore Rainbow River State Park”

Reviewed Sep 20, 2016

We chose this park because of the access to tubing on Rainbow River in the clear fresh water. This park had kayak's and canoe's for rent, a swimming area in the river, and tube rentals with a tram ride back when you're done for $15.00 per person. If you have your own floats, you can always just buy one pass and that person can go get... more

Note: The campground is NOT in the State Park. Its about 8 miles away, and although we had the correct address, our GPS did not take us there. If you feel you might not be heading in the right direction, definitely call the park for directions! The campground is beautiful – but I would definitely recommend getting a site on the out... more

Firstly, ne'er let it be said that all spots were created equally. I think Thomas Jefferson was the first to come up with that quote when signing the Declaration of State Park Camping when he purchased the Louisiana portion of Florida. Facts people, dig them.
