The springs were ah-mazing!! We rented kayaks and it was only $22 for a double seater for an hour. We saw so many manatees! They came along side our kayak and attempted to make contact with us. AJ and Kodi were very sweet at the rentals. The only thing that was disappointing was the price of the food. $5 for... More

We stopped here on our way back from Orlando. This is an awesome park. We rendted kayaks for a small fee and paddled with alligators, manatees, and all kinds of wildife. This was really the highlight of our trip. Part of the water is crystal clear and you can see all kinds of fish. The park is just stunning.

This park is absolutely beautiful! Well maintained. You truly feel like you are in mother natures paradise. To see the hundreds of manatees in the river during winter months is breath taking! I highly recommend this place!

My wife and I visited the park to see the manatees and take the boat ride down the St. John's river. The park is beautiful and the manatee area is very nice. The boat ride would be great if the didn't pack you in like sardines and allow people to stand at the front of the boat so others can't... More

Really just left us with a poor impression of the park due to the hostile manager "Lois" and her group of flunkies. Go a bit further along the river to Ginnie Resort for a first class experience. You are paying for it, after all.

This place has a nice spring to swim in. That's about it for the flattery. Now for the rest of my review. Do not come here to camp in anything larger than a tent. The whole place is convoluted with regard to how it is managed, run and set up for camping. Getting past the fact that there is no... More

We spent the day in this beautiful place. The parks facilities were lovely and we enjoyed a wonderful time at a unique place. Very unfortunately the manager was extremely rude from the beginning. I felt rushed to leave all the time, even before closing time. She kept making aggressive sounding announcements over the loudspeaker an hour prior to closing time... More

We came here after seeing many pictures of it online. Let me just say, it's my favorite spring so far. The water is clear, there is a jumping platform, clean bathrooms and showers too! There are hiking trails and a million armadillos. Be careful because the current down the river from the spring is strong and can pull you away... More

Started going to Blue Springs to camp with my kids years ago. And I've been back several times since. It's definitely become more crowded and unfortunately with a crowd that sometimes is loud and disrespectful--leaving trash laying around, using foul language around kids, etc...) but the water is still clear and crisp. Be sure to take your snorkel or dive... More
