A road trip to Blue Springs was fantastic. The water was kept at a cool temperature despite the humid weather. An entrance fee will be charged, so its more worth it to travel in with a car (with more people in the car that is). Besides seeing the aquatic mammals (huge fish & manatees), you get to snorkel for free... More

My family and I enjoyed it so very much. We will definitely be back anytime we are around this part of Florida. My husband, I, and our 18 month old from MS enjoyed this clear water beauty. Shallow waters for our toddler to play. Swing set and plenty of sand for the young ones also. Plenty of picnic tables and... More

I was in Florida last week and decided to go to Blue Springs Park again. I had been there about 30 years ago as a teenager and it was neat so why not enjoy it as an adult. I had a great time and will make that trip again every time I am there. With the temp's being cool the... More

In warm weather you will see alligators and anhingas. When the weather turns cold you will see the manatees. If you have never seen manatees in their native setting, this is the place. And while doing it, you can get history, natural history and geological history lessons from the lesson boards along the boardwalk. The best time to go to... More

We were brought here by friends to hopefully see the manatees in mid November on a rainy day. We saw about two dozen including several young babies and a number of juveniles. It was a fantastic, memorable experience.

We went there with zero expectation and came back with tons of fun. The water is super cold irrespective of the outside weather. Be careful when you walk upstream, the walk way can be very slippery and use extra caution if it rains......Go there enjoy the day with ur family and friends. There is a shelter where you can have...

We had such a great time with our 14, 10 and 2 year old! What a great escape from the theme parks and just a beautiful day outside with nature. Don't miss the mosaic manatee photo opportunity! Couple of FYI's: bring water shoes for everyone in your family. In my mind I was thinking the ground in the spring would... More

This place has the dubious distinction of being the first place my husband and I saw a gator up close - thankfully we were in our canoe at the time! Don't let that put you off though, as this park has a lot to offer. The swimming area is breathtakingly blue and crystal clear. There is also a second pool... More

The entrance fee for this park is slightly higher than other springs, but in my opinion it is worth it! We have come here several times and have always enjoyed ourselves. It is great for families with kids of any age- the water is shallow enough in the pool for toddlers to explore, and the dock is great for the... More
