Blue Springs is a second-magnitude spring with a large swimming area. It has a diving dock and is 24 feet deep in the main boil. There are 50 yards of white-sand beach, great for small children and sunbathers.
The Boardwalk is a quarter-mile long and meanders along the spring run out to the Santa Fe River. You may canoe or kayak out to the river. Fishing is permitted (with valid FL fishing license) at the end of the boardwalk, in the river.
See the map of the park and the locations of the springs below.
Along with the main spring, there are several other smaller springs on the property:
Naked Springs has a floating dock and is available for swimming.
Johnson Springs is a smaller spring near Aric the Giant, a very large and old cypress tree. It is available for swimming.
Little Blue Springs has a floating dock and is available for swimming.
Kiefer Springs is another little spring that you will enjoy. Water is only visible in this spring when the river is at higher levels. Swimming is not permitted in this spring.
Hiking Trails criss-cross throughout the Blue Springs property and offer a quiet getaway to walk and explore nature. You will see flora and fauna in its natural habitat.
