Rainbow River State Park Camping Weekend

Rainbow River Camping/Tubing Trip

I love this campground and thought since we'll be tubing on Saturday July 19th, why not make a camping weekend out of it.

Some information about Rainbow Springs....

Rainbow Springs State Park Archaeological evidence indicates that people have been using this spring for nearly 10,000 years. Rainbow Springs is Florida's fourth largest spring and, from the 1930s through the 1970s, was the site of a popular, privately-owned attraction. The Rainbow River is popular for swimming, snorkeling, canoeing, and kayaking. Canoes and kayaks can be rented at the headsprings. A picnic area at the spring includes tables, grills, and pavilions. Rainbow Springs State Park is a magnificent first magnitude freshwater spring that pumps 500 million gallons of water per day. With over 1000 acres of managed area, there is an abundance of recreational opportunities. Our campground has 60 campsites.

The park gates close at sunset. If you plan to arrive late please contact the park prior to 5 PM on the day of your arrival. We'll be camping on Friday, Saturday and leaving Sunday with a tubing trip scheduled for Saturday morning at 10 AM.

Campsites are $30 per night (+tax) and include Water, Electricity and sewage for the RV sites.


The campgrounds have brand new bath facilities that are very nice.

The sites will fill up fast....so if you're going to camp, don't wait to make your reservations. Campground Reservations To book your reservations CLICK HERE

Their address for GPS purposes is 18185 S.W. 94th Street Dunnellon Florida 34432 They told me that some GPS units have a problem so you can use this address 10830 S.W. 180th Ave Road Dunnellon Florida 34432. This is the address for their tubing entrance. If your GPS can't find the first address, use this one and then just drive 1 1/2 miles north past the tubing entrance sign and you'll see the campground entrance on the left.

We can plan a potluck cookout Saturday evening for anyone who would like to participate.

They allow 1 RV or 2 tents per site along with 2 vehicles and up to 8 people total for those who wish to share. To book your reservations CLICK HERE

      Hey Sisi, make sure you call the campground and get the gate code (if they have one). State Parks typically close at sunset. This time of year that is 8 oclock maybe.

      Hi SiSi. I posted a while back that I has to go out if town. My mother is not doing well. I must have posted to the wrong thread. If you don't have someone sharing your space, I will still pay my share.

      I'm pretty sure you can have 2 tents per site but it's best to call the park to confirm.
