This was our first self guided dive after completing our cave course. The system had just opened for diving and the flow was high, reducing visibility and making progress difficult, but we persevered. We were able to make the Godzilla cave loop before gas supply...More

This is a small day park. It's great for picnicking and swimming in the spring. It's a small area so may be very crowded in warmer months.

This is a beautiful family place. It is great for cooling off on a hot summer day. There are lots of picnic tables available for a quick picnic meal. It is a nice shady area and safe for children.

My family recently did 3 days of springs and tubing in North Florida. Madison Blue Springs was the last on the agenda and it did not disappoint. There is not a beach to set up your stuff on, so claim a picnic table. Once you...More

The actual swimming area was beautiful. It was very unique to be able to swim from the cool spring out to the warm river. Picnic area needs some work. The state of Florida can and does do better at other springs. Very small picnic area...More
