I took my children here for a break from Disney and I must say I was truly wooed. For just a few bucks and a few miles from the highway it is definitely worth a visit. It offers a shaded wooden board walk and pathways running along a beautiful creek housing everything from manatees, turtles, and massive fish. Bring a... More

Blue Springs State Park, located just off I-4 about 45 minutes north of Orlando, is the winter home to hundreds of manatees. Only $6 fee per car to see manatees in their natural habitat along a wooden board walk that parallels a river. A must see for any nature lover. Dogs allowed on leash

Went here to see manatees and didnt see any. We went on 12/28 hoping that there would be some to see, we got there around 12:30pm and the park was crowded. Lots of families and watchers hoping to see the manatees. We walked up and down the paths and didnt see any. So that was disappointing... (you might ask at... More

We visited this park about 9 years ago and were surprised how much more developed it is now. When we visited previously there were about 20 Manatees there - this time because of the unseasonable warm weather there was only two. Keep in mind the Manatees are mainly there during winter - November to February (if it is cool enough).... More

We kayaked into Blue Springs on a Sunday and there were only a few people in the water. It's absolutely worth a trip in, beautiful blue water. There is no charge when you kayak in but you can not go on land or the boardwalk, if you do there is a $10 fee. From the water it looked small but... More

So I feel like I should have gone here before going to. Ichetucknee Springs because after going there, it makes Blue Springs look like a kiddy pool. LITERALLY. The area where you tube is super short, and has no current so you don't really float any where. The prices for all rentals is really cheap, except for the tubing which... More

You can get we great views of the springs along the trail but the canoe area and springs areas are way over crowded and you can't hardly get to the stairs to get in the water for all the children and teenagers. The water is absolutely freezing so if you're not use to the cold this is not the place... More

We enjoyed an afternoon at Blue with our teenage boys. The water is beautiful! Clear with the most amazing blue color & COLD! But it's such a refreshing change from the salt water of the ocean. There's a great 1/4 mile boardwalk above & along the edge of the spring water flow that takes you to the edge of the... More

This a pretty great spot to take some friends or the family. This is not a luxury water park, so don't be expecting it. But it is not the pits either. This a family ran park, they offer a lot here. They offer RV hook ups and camping spots for people wanting to stay the night. The offer showers to... More
