Blue Springs is a slice of heaven on earth. Great hiking, camping, canoeing and snorkeling and swimming. The long hike is beautiful and takes you through several diverse ecosystems.

I used to visit here when it was privately owned. The spring hasn't lost any of it's charm since becoming a state park. It is a maximum magnitude cave flowing over a million gallons of water a day. It's popular with those wanting to swim...More

We headed east and came across this state park, small. It is limited to parking area, but that makes it nice limiting the number of people, even though there were plenty, but not on top of each other. The spring itself is small, beautiful, and...More
