Blue Spring is a natural wonder, pouring 38 million gallons of cold, clear water each day into its trout-stocked lagoon.Start your adventure with an insightful historic film in the Visitor Center, then stroll the handicapped-accessible walkways and inviting garden paths that wind through the 33 acres of native gardens. Visit the historic mill site that dates from the 1840's, see the Bluff Shelter on the National Register of Historic Places, and walk along the path of the Trail of Tears. Resident Appaloosas and abundant native flora and fauna delight visitors, and our charming gift shop offers an array of items to keep the exerience alive. Blue Spring is a quiet getaway and a perfect place for weddings, group outings or any special occasion.

We drove from Branson south on the 62 and found the charming area of Eureka Springs AR, tucked in the Ozark Mountains it is a gem! The gardens, lookout over the mountains, the shops and the friendly people made the trip worth taking. We stopped along the way for a beverage at the Roudy Beaver, and had the best ribs... More

Wife like all the rocks and rock scuptures and flowers around, It's not really a guy thing i didn't think. Neat story about the family and how the so called castle came about.

My family and I went to the garden while we were road tripping through Arkansas. The guide there was very friendly and helpful. The place was very nice and relaxing. Beautiful scenery. Its a must see if in the area.

My family and I stopped by for about an hour and a half to visit the beautiful grounds. My ten year old son and twelve year old daughter really enjoyed the site. Both historical and beautiful place to visit!

What a treat to spend time on a lovely spring afternoon walking the trails, sipping the spring water, learning the history of the spring and wowing over the 10,000 petunias. It would be a lovely walk in any season. The area abounds in history.

The gardens are full of life, flowers, birds, and butterflies. It is great to walk along the paths and enjoy the gardens and springs that you find.

Have never seen such pretty gardens anywhere! They have obviously been laid out with great care, thought, skill and attention to every detail. The master gardener/designer deserves kudos all the way around. A feast for the eyes and food for the soul!

There are cute shops and restaurants that string along the main road in Eureka Springs. The foliage is changing in late October-early November, and the different colors are just amazing. Take a weekend to relax and take things slow.
