We have been going to Blue Springs for well over 15 years. A large group of us stay in the cabins and float each August. The last many years we have been at the Rock Castle. The cabins are kept clean. The last two years we have also gone in October for their Halloween activities ... FUN!!!

We had a great time, grandson loves coming here. Unfortunately the last night a huge storm ruined our evening. But the camp grounds are nice. We also sat at the springs, the pool was great, we all enjoyed that. There is a very nice convenient store for whatever you may need.

This campground has lots of activities for families, but I would not call it family friendly. Our family camped for one night and endured a large group of adults 4 spots away from us who screamed the F word along with sexual obscenities in almost every sentence. It was non-stop and very frustrating. They drove fast and honked their horns... More

We have been going to BSR off and on over the last 10 years. We camp and then either canoe or raft. We have always reserved rafts when we book the campsite but Gina said not to worry about it and to book it when we got there. My husband had called 2 other times. Spoke with Gina each time... More

There is a lot to do; floating, pool, zip-line and horseback riding. The cabins are nicely spaced apart so you still have plenty of privacy. Cabin was very clean. The only downside I found was the full size bed. In today's age, I think most couples prefer at least a queen size, and there would have been plenty of room... More

We stay here every year to camp with friends and if the weather is nice we take a float trip. We have a large 5th wheel camper so we camp in the sites with full hookups. A majority of the sites are long enough for a 37ft or larger rig. Cabins and tent sites are also available. The grounds are... More

We have rented cabins @ BSR for the last five years in a row. We have ALWAYS had a great time. The cabins have been very clean, well stocked and every staff member has been fabulous. This past June, we had a large group and at the time of checkin, we had 2 couples that had an emergency and were... More

VERY MISLEADING -- READ THE FINE PRINT! We and two other couples rented Cabin 9 for two nights. On the website, the floor plan clearly shows three separate sleeping areas. The video tour also implies that there are three bedrooms. We rented this cabin because each couple preferred privacy. On arrival, we discovered that there were two separate sleeping areas... More

Went on a great float with my family - husband and three kids. Nice crowd on the river, totally family appropriate. Grounds very nice, great store, nice staff, clean stretch of river. Did not stay on the property but looked nice.

Although we didn't stay on property (INTEND TO NEXT TIME), The grounds are very nice, it is out there in the woods. It is a scenic area. We went there to go one a float trip. It is the least expensive rip. Friendly staff.place we found to rent tubes and ride to drop off point.
