This is such a beautiful park. The springs, the manatees, turtles, birds and other animals, the nature trails, everything. We had a wonderful day.

Our trip to Blue Springs is a highlight in our trip to Florida! We tried to go last year but the park was packed. This year we were at the gate before the park opened. No crowds, a lot of manatees. My husband and I enjoyed the park greatly. The walkways and plat forms to see the manatees are well... More

This place is a gem of Florida. However the people running it do not care about you or your family and just want your money. IF YOU ARE TRAVELING BY BOAT DON'T GET OUT ON THEIR PROPERTY OR YOU WILL BE CHARGED! If you don't immediately pay what they ask you to, they will call all 3 branches of law... More

It's amazing, nothing else. You can spend all your afternoon, but after some hours it's kinda boring if you are not having a barbecue or playing something. I recommend rent a kayak or something to go river down..It's 5 dolars to rent it and there are some machines to buy chips and this stuffs. To get into the park you... More

The park's name comes from a 35-foot deep spring surrounded by a small swimming area edged on one side by a narrow beach. On the side across from the beach is a large raised platform where brave people can jump down into the blue water bubbling out of the spring. Along one bank of the shallow tributary that flows from... More

Lots of picnic tables; concessions available along with canoe and tube rental. Boardwalk along the water; tower for jumping into spring; also beach area for little ones. Can hike in surrounding woodsy area and camp with reservations. Took a nature walk and had a treasure hunt for the kids. Enjoyed a canoe ride and swimming in the crystal clear and... More

When I recently went to visit my daughter in Gainesville Florida my husband asked me what are you going to do for a week in Gainesville. Well my daughter found plenty of things for us to do, but I have to say my most favorite was our visit to Blue Springs. We packed a picnic lunch and charcoal for the... More

We have been coming to Blue Springs for many years & always have a blast. Frequently they have been Boy Scout trips & we camp here rather than Ginny because the drinking is insane at Ginny, usually a fatality there every summer. At Blue all the non campers must leave at 7 so it calms down at night. The spring... More

First off, don't confuse this with Blue Springs STATE Park. This is in a different location, with less to do, and it's more expensive. These springs are nestled in between Ichetucknee, O'leno, Ginnie Springs, and the Santa Fe River. In its natural state, I'm sure it would be a very pretty place. However, on a Saturday in July, the place... More

Visited July 5, 2014- It wasnt quite what we expected, or even close. First off the spring run is extremely narrow and I wouldnt call it a run, its more of a sprint. VERY short and you spend the whole time maneuvering around canoes, fallen trees and there are places its so shallow your behind will literally bump things on... More
