When you visit this park, remember to come early. They will close the parking lot when full and you will not be able to enter the park. We visited in July and arrived at 9:30 a.m. and there was plenty of parking. As soon as we arrived, we bought tickets to go on the 2 hour narrated Nature and Ecological Cruise on the historic St. Johns River. Cruises Depart Daily at 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
Nadia and I really enjoyed the cruise. We saw a lot of Alligators, one turkey, many birds, but no manatee. It was not the season and too hot.
We had a great guide and we learned a lot about the area.
The springs remain a constant temperature of 73 degrees all year long!

Blue Spring State Park has a lot to offer. There is camping, tubing, snorkeling, boat tours and hiking. There is even a Wilderness Escape Guided Segway tour.
I really enjoyed this park and would like to come back and try camping sometime.
