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

Please be advised that there is more than one "Blue Springs" in Florida. This park is currently privately owned, and is situated on the West side of the state in High Springs -- adjacent to the Sante Fe river. This private park is well maintained with plenty of parking. The facilities include modern bathroom facilities, covered pavilions, picnic tables, a... More

We came here as we were celebrating my son's 17th birthday. Best idea ever. The Spring is beautiful with crystal blue water. They have a dock where you can jump from. There's a few trails that lead you to a couple of Springs in the park. Would recommend this to anyone who's looking for a great time. The scenery is... More

Beautiful springs. Great dock for walking to enjoy the spring and It's connection with the river... Alcohol allowed, grills, a "playground". My only complaint, they don't mess around when it comes to closing time... I don't mean the adcertised time they close... I mean 45 minutes early they start pushing people out and they are clear about their intentions with... More
