Blue Spring State Park
This spring is much more than a scenic area for canoeing and swimming; it plays a vital role in the survival of one of
Florida's most beleaguered residents -- the Manatee.
Visitors can learn more about this endangered animal through ranger interpretive programs.
A chair accessible observation platform provides a view of the endangered mammals that gather at the spring during the cooler months of the year.
From November through March, the manatees leave the colder waters of the St. Johns River for the safety and comfort of the 72-degree spring
Camping, cabins, canoeing, fishing, boating, picnicking, swimming, scuba diving, and nature trails are available.
