It is definitely worth taking the time to go down and see the spring and the area around there. They have it set up very nicely and it is easy to get to. It is just a beautiful area!

Great for hiking, photography, or just relaxing. The scenary can't be beat and the trails aren't nearly as challenging as they make them out to be.

We didn't camp. However, all of the Blanchard Springs cabins were rented and we had to stay outside the park. I suggest reserving a campsite to ensure you have one.

Sylamore creek is a great place to paddle around in a kayak but I would steer clear of the White River because the current is pretty swift there.
