Must see · State Park · Park
Swim, camp, dive, fish, go kayaking, and take a real jungle expedition at Blue Spring State Park, an ancient home of the Timucuan tribe. Stretching over 1,000 hectare (2,600 acre) of land, this park offers an array of eco-activities. Fifty-one camp sites, 27 of which are equipped with electricity, can be reserved if you plan on staying longer. Even a few air-conditioned cabins in the woods are available. While swimming is popular, it is not allowed during the season when manatees are present. Also, when the park reaches full capacity, no one may enter until space opens up, so you are advised to arrive early.

  • Wow is the water cold!!! Know that going in, but for $6 for the day you can’t beat a day of swimming and fun. The pictures alone are worth more than that.  more »
  • Beautiful area to stop! Only a $6 per car for entry. Walk along the trails and observe the beautiful springs. Be sure to bring a bathing suit and jump in! Cold but so refreshing!! High recommend...  more »
  • Beautiful springs with lots to do. Campground has great, secluded and shady sites. Park has affordable rentals for kayaking, snorkeling, scuba and plenty more. Camp ground host was very helpful and nice when we needed help getting from the campground to the springs. Only thing to remember is to get there early if not camping, the park is known to get to capacity quickly. We were unable to go here on our first attempt in August cause they were full by 10 AM.
  • Oh I love the Springs! When we went it was super hot. The cool water was exactly what we needed to cool off. Before we left we walked around a bit. We got to see the Manatees!! The sun starting sink down it was the most beautiful day.
