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

Blue Springs is one of our favorite places. However, the people who run it are not particularly pleasant. I'd give it a 10 out of 5 if it weren't for the people who run it. But that does not affect our fun. We rented a canoe this last time and were surprised at the way we were treated. They rented... More

All I can say is Blue Springs is a beautiful attration! The water is blue and crystal clear! Jumping off the deck is a blast!! I love that you can stroll on the walkway over the springs and enjoy the lovely view. It is a little pricey, $10 a person to get into the park, but it is truly worth... More

Blue Springs is unique amongst most springs along the Santa Fe River. It has a large basin and a jump off deck and beaches for the parents. It also had a nice boardwalk. However they are a bit pricey. I would suggest season passes.

It is small, access road to the park is soft sand (not motorcycle friendly), place to swim.....not a warm and fuzzy feeling from the lady at the gate. No pets allowed.

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
