While camping at Rainbow Springs State Park, I walked the path down to the river. It was an easy stroll through some palms. Off to the side were woods with typical Florida undergrowth. It looked like there may have been some recent storm or flood damage.
By the river, were some fallen trees and a wrecked viewing platform. The launch ramp, for canoes and kayaks, was still accessible. A display panel explained about the plants, wildlife, and spring fed river basin.
A separate entrance and viewing area was a few miles away where you could see the spring. I didn’t make that trip, as it would have meant backtracking a good ways. Pretty sure that during the season a shuttle runs between the campground and the spring.
The camp was a pretty place. However, it only had full hook-up sites which made it far more expensive than anticipated; even with my resident half-off rate. I was pretty eager to get on down the road; so, I left the next day.
