About

State Park

Blue Spring State Park has 51 campsites (recreational vehicles up to 40 feet long) located in the sand pine scrub and are within walking distance to the spring. Each site is equipped with a picnic table, water, electricity and a grill. A dump station is available in the park. Pets are welcome in the Blue Springs camping area in accordance with our Pet Policy. ADA Accessible sites at Blue Springs State Park camping are offered on Reserve America and two new bathhouses are complete with accessible showers and bathroom stalls.

Conservation measures can produce astounding results. In 1970, two years before Blue Spring State Park was established, researchers tracked 14 manatees in the spring run. By 2005, after years of park improvements and manatee protection efforts, wintering manatee numbers exceeded 200 and by 2018, that number skyrocketed to a record 485.

Besides "sea cows," fish abound in the spring run, and these attract a variety of wading birds, ospreys, eagles and kingfishers. To see the park’s wonders, visitors can hike along the spring run or on the 4.5-mile Pine Island Trail. Visitors can also launch a canoe or kayak (rentals are available at the park) or take a guided river boat cruise.

Manatee and Florida nature

Visited to see Manatees from the land. Cooler temps best for manatee numbers.

Campground sites feel secluded with vegetation but can be challenging for backing up into spots.

Had electric and water but trash is upon exit along with dump station

Nice paved road around campground and short trail to main park area. Canoe and kayak rentals available.

Beautiful Blue Springs

This beautiful state park has a secluded old Florida feel.

The facilities, the manatees, the fireflies, the sites…everything was wonderful. We loved our stay.
