Rainbow Springs State Park, Dunnellon

North Florida, FL, USA


Dip into a deep, crystal clear natural pool and feel the water swish around you! This is what you can do at Rainbow Springs State Park. You are surrounded by the deepest and brightest green vegetation, and on one side very high trees, which gives the terrain some shape, almost like a mountain. The swimming area, which is huge, is roped off, separating it from the river the flows out from the headspring.
Waterfalls are dotted around the historic park, which used to be a tourist attraction and a phosphate mining area.
Rainbow Springs State Park is an hour from the college town of Gainesville.
