Blue Spring State Park, FL

Recommended Posts

What a lovely campground, and an extraordinarily beautiful park.

The park has it all for central Florida: private campsites, electric and water, and very level sites. Small, but with our trailers, who cares?

The park is incredible. A beautiful boardwalk rims the spring run, the spring, and ends at the St. John River and the marina. Absolutely lovely.

Bugs? Yes. Tiny mosquitos in late Feb/early March, a campfire took care of them. Very nice neighbors.

The bathhouses are old, but absolutely immaculate. Not a cobweb or spider in sight, (nor mildew), in spite of the 80's color theme of yellow and gold. The posted schedule on the wall for cleaning, cobweb removal, and pressure cleaning is strictly followed. Kudos to the staff.

We loved our stay, and we'll be back again.

Photos to folllow.

PS Blue Spring is a fabled, legendary spring in the heart of Florida. I was so glad to finally see what I'd read about in poetry and essays. Go if you get the chance. At $24 a night, it's a steal, manatees or no. The spring is 73 degrees year round, so the manatee population is larger when the river is colder (November thru February). You cannot swim or kayak during the manatee season, as Blue Spring is a refuge area for the gentle giants.

Our daughter and her friends could not get into Blue Springs this weekend. They did snag a last minute opening at Wekiwa Springs State Park. Anyone been there? It's very close to Blue Spring.

Sounds like my kitchen! I keep telling the kids not to worry. By the time they get it, it'll be in style!!"

 

LOL ;)

 

Sounds like a lovely campground, thanks for the report . . .

We stayed at Wekiva Springs a few weeks ago before we left Florida... we loved it! Great hiking trails, and the campground is about a mile hike to the swimming springs and kayak launch. And so close to stuff in Altamonte Springs for shopping & dining.

 

If it wasn't for the guys blaring their truck's stereo all night, it would have been a very peaceful stay for us.
