Tubing on Rock Springs
Kelly Park features a free-flowing natural spring (68 degrees year round), full-service concession, picnic pavilions and playground. Tube rentals are available from vendors outside the park; guests may bring their own pool noodles or floats, which must be less than 5 feet in length or width. The waterfront closes one hour prior to park closing. During the summer, inclement weather can affect park operations; for the safety of our guests, the swim area will be closed if a storm produces lightning.
Programs for Our Weekend Camping Guests
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to the popularity of Kelly Park, it is normal to service a high volume of visitors during the summer months and on holidays. You may also experience traffic congestion due to the popularity of the park. Frequently, the park is filled to capacity by mid-morning, and unfortunately guests must be turned away at the entry. In order to provide a quality recreational experience while preserving the natural beauty of historic Kelly Park, a daily maximum visitation has been determined: 280 vehicles will be allowed entry each morning, and an additional 50 vehicles are allowed in after 2 p.m. with afternoon parking pass. These 330 vehicles equate to an average of 1,350 visitors each day. You must get a parking pass in the morning once we hit our initial capacity to be able to gain access at the 2 p.m. re-open time. Only one pass will be given per car and they are on a first come first serve basis. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for working with us to ensure a sustainably safe and pleasant experience for you and all of our guests. No pets; No alcohol
