Florida

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.

Address:
2100 West French Avenue, Orange City
Hours:
From 8 am until sundown, 365 days a year.
