A campground with plenty of explore

Blanchard Springs is one of those campground that you visit and have plenty of things to explore around camp.   From hiking trails of several different difficulties and distances to fishing, water wading and cave exploration this site is one which offers many opportunities.

When I visited the main camp was not open, only the group camp by reservation.   They were currently underway with working on some improvements in the main loop.   I opted to check out the group camp which is a larger reflection of the smaller sites.    I could see the regular sites from atop the hill and they looked very similar.    

Campsites all come standard with fire rings, lantern hooks, picnic tables and camping pads.   They additionally have common spigots within a short distance of each site.    Parking for the sites is well placed and freshly resurfaced with medium size gravel which is easy to drive over.

Campsites are all within walking distance of flush toilets and have access to the flowing waters nearby which are both beautiful and peaceful to visit.     

Just up the way from the campsites is one of my personal favorites, the Blanchard Springs itself, a thundering water fall which emerges it seems from the mountain.    During rainy season especially this is quite the amazing place to visit.   Down a boardwalk you will hike to the spring and once there it is amazing to see and explore.
