Blue Spring is beautiful, great for swimming and tubing, but definitely not a place to dive. Extremely crowded and long walks with gear.

My 20 year old niece and I went to Blue Spring State Park and enjoyed the 73 degree water temps on a 95 degree day. Rented one inner tube and purchased snorkeling gear from the on-site store and rented a locker. If you walk up the path, go all the way up before you jump into the water so that... More

We camped at Blue Springs 2 nights in our travel trailer. The campground was spacious and most sites are shady. The bath houses look very new and were clean. There are only about 50 sites so book early. There are also cabins available. One benefit of camping at Blue Springs is that you have easy access to the springs. A... More

Kayak rentals, guided boat tour, crystal clear spring water, grills and tables, playground, wide open spaces, informative nature walk, gift store and old south plantation style house. The last two times I have been there we even saw a family of otters swimming in the springs with us. The water is... More

The water was so clear and so refreshing Not big of a spring so it does get over crowded but it didn't bother us at all. Staff very friendly!

6 dollar park fee is well worth it. Beautiful place where you can see manatees (we saw only only one in July but more than hundred on an earlier visit in February last year). You can take a swim in the river. Best to bring a tube of you can rent one in the park. Water is cold which was... More

Excellent place to take a swim or ride in a float for a few hours...you can rent floats but can also bring your own floats as well. Pack a lunch for a picnic

We went kayaking at Blue Springs/St.Johns River! It was so beautiful! We saw gators, manatees, turtles, fish and all kinds of birds! We were so satisfied with our experience. One of the coolest things we have ever done!! Then we got to swim in the spring after our kayaking adventure!! Everyone go! It's so breath taking!

Wonderful place to relax and walk around enjoying nature. Also great for a cool swim. During the winter, it is a great place to view manatees.
