Rainbow Springs is Florida's fourth largest spring, located near Dunnellon, Florida, which is in the southwest corner of Marion County Florida, about 20 miles southwest of Ocala, 100 miles northwest of Orlando and 100 miles north of the Tampa Bay area. The headspring basin which produces between 400 - 600 million gallons of fresh water per day. In addition to the springs located at the headwaters, there are many smaller springs that discharge from numerous caves, rock crevices, and sand boils the entire length of the river. The Rainbow River is a gently winding river that is 5.7 miles long and merges with the Withlacoochee River at Dunnellon Florida.  The Rainbow River was designated as a Registered Natural Landmark in 1972, an Aquatic Preserve in 1986, and an "Outstanding Florida Waterway" in 1987. The state purchased the original area that was the Rainbow Springs Attraction in 1990. Volunteers cleared the overgrown park and opened the park on weekends to the public. The Florida Park Service officially opened Rainbow Springs State Park on a full time basis on March 9, 1995. Rainbow Springs State Park, which surrounds the head spring and flanks much or the eastern side of the river, contains 11 distinct natural communities, including sandhills, flatwoods, upland mixed forests, and hydric hammocks. The Rainbow River is popular for SCUBA diving, snorkeling, fishing, paddling and tubing. Photograph Copyright Carlton Ward Jr / Carlton Ward Photography / CarltonWard.com
