This place is spectacular. It was a last minute stop over back home from a weekend trip to Daytona. We thought the $6 entry fee for a car load was more than reasonable. Inside we were anxious to sign up for the boat tour that was offered at 10am. Unfortunately we were too late, so we put our names down... More

We visited on a Wednesday afternoon in July around Noon. Cost was $6 to enter. It was a bit crowded but the crowd was pleasant and just there to enjoy the crystal clear waters. Bring water shoes as you will walk across a wooden deck and enter the water via steps - there are several sets of steps. You can... More

This is a great weekend thing to do. Floating around the clear, and cool water of Blue Springs State Park. The water here is not as cool as other springs, the seepage isn't much as others and it mixes with a river. Tons of fish and even manatees. Not a big park but lots of fun. Get there early because...

Very cool place. My six year old son enjoyed jumping off of the platform. He must have jumped a 100 times. The run is beautiful and goes out to the Santa Fe river. There is another lagoon of springs on the property that is more serene and has more fish in it.

My first time there and had a wonderful experience. Arrived @ 1030 and the park was surprisingly not packed. Spent a few hours in the water swimming.. the area was suitable for all age due to the beachlike feel. Then we rented a canoe to go out to the Santa Fe river.. 2 hrs for $15 was worth the fun...

I have visited twice in one week, both times during the week. We left before 2 pm each day and didn't experience excessive crowds. Despite other reviews, we didn't experience rude staff and bathrooms were possibly the cleanest I've seen at camping facilities on the water. We experienced a family friendly crowd and didn't see any alcohol, not to say... More

The spring is beautiful. We visited two years ago and had a great time. This time, we had a very bad experience. The spring was overcrowded. A park attendant told us, in their recollection, this was the busiest the park had ever been. That is not a problem. The problem is they closed the restrooms and made no attempt to... More

We came here on a hot day we decided to come here because you could rent tubes and the first time here was great but this time was not that nice. One worker said it was the busiest day she saw in twenty four years and on that day they closed the bathrooms. They did not bring in any sort... More

Come here all the time. Great to jump off of the dock into a cold spring on a hot day. If you camp here you get the place, and the jumping, practically to yourself after the day visitors leave. My teenage boys go crazy doing running flips and dives. Bring a mask and snorkel.They are relaxed about alcohol (no glass),... More

We visited Blue Springs on Saturday and had a fun time. We arrived around 11:00 a.m. and the park was not crowded. We set up lawn chairs in the shade and then rented two tubes. We knew the water would be cold (72 degrees) so we jumped off the diving platform. The water was cold! We enjoyed swimming in the... More
