Area Information
The City of Dunnellon and surrounding area (the "Treasure of the Nature Coast") welcomes you with small town charm. The Rainbow Springs State Park; crystal clear Rainbow River to canoe, kayak, or tube; a fisherman's paradise on the Withlacoochee River and Lake Rouseau; trails for bike, or hiking enthusiasts; and make Dunnellon the TRUE Florida and an easy secret to discover West on FL Hwy 40 from either I-75 or I-95 to US Hwy 41 and then South five miles.

The Dunnellon area offers a variety of opportunities for any age to explore. Both water sports, and numerous trails, and local history abound in Dunnellon for you to enjoy.

The small town atmosphere in Dunnellon makes for a restful break from the stress and strain of everyday pressures.

For the more adventurous types there are numerous opportunities to enjoy our two local rivers: The Rainbow River and the Withlacoochee River.

The crystal clear Rainbow River starts at the Rainbow Springs State Park on US 41 where the head waters are located. The park is open daily and offers areas in which you can canoe, swim, snorkel, picnic, observe nature at its finest, or just plain relax. Rainbow Springs State Park hosts a wide variety of special events throughout the year.

About one mile down river there is the Rainbow Springs State Park Campground on the east side, the campground is located 2.5 miles north of county road 484 off of SW 180th Avenue Rd. At the campground there are ample opportunities to go canoeing, snorkeling, or just sit around the campfire. A boat ramp for hand launched vessels only is available as well as canoe and tube rentals.

A little further down stream and on the West side of the river is the location of the KP Hole County Park. The park is located on SW 190th Avenue Road and has been in service for over 50 years. The Park offers canoe and tube rentals as well as other amenities, and is the only boat ramp on the Rainbow River for motorized vessels.

Behind the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce office is the confluence of the Rainbow River and the Withlacoochee Rivers and the site of the city beach. This park offers a sandy beach as well as a playground area and picnic tables.

For the fisherman the Withlacoochee River and Lake Rousseau offer exceptional large mouth bass fishing, which is why we are the "Bass Capital of Florida". The Gulf of Mexico is only minutes away heading west on CR 40, or by water through the Withlacooche River. The river can be accesed from the City Boat Dock on US Hwy 41.

In the heart of Dunnellon on US 41 is the Historical Railroad Depot. The Depot is owned and operated by the Greater Dunnellon Historical Society. The Depot houses a museum and country store. It is open on Saturdays during special events.
