Swim, camp, dive, fish, go kayaking, and take a real jungle expedition at Blue Spring State Park, an ancient home of the Timucuan tribe. Stretching over 1,000 hectare (2,600 acre) of land, this park offers an array of eco-activities. Fifty-one camp sites, 27 of which are equipped with electricity, can be reserved if you plan on staying longer. Even a few air-conditioned cabins in the woods are available. While swimming is popular, it is not allowed during the season when manatees are present. Also, when the park reaches full capacity, no one may enter until space opens up, so you are advised to arrive early. Put Blue Spring State Park into our Orange City travel itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
Blue Spring State Park Reviews
What a wonderful time to visit the Blue Springs State Park and see the manatees! It was a beautiful sunny day and there was over 300 manatees. The park is super clean and the walk ways and over views ... more »
Attention, il faut arriver tôt, car c'est le parc le plus proche d'Orlando. C'est aussi un state parc. Les trails sont sympas, il y a une forte concentration de lamentins en hiver.

The trails are nice, there is a high concentration of lamentines in winter. There is a little history also on this site.
What a beautiful day. We didn't see any Manatees but that's probably because my friend was too lazy for us to rent a canoe. The water is so beautiful and clear. A we saw a fish stick his tongue out lol photo below. Great for swimming, canoeing and they have a guided tour boat that takes you out. Great day in nature.
This place is incredible!!! It's beautiful, clean, natural, well maintained. The water is cold and refreshing its full of fish and manatees swim rite by you; there are lots of activities like hiking, kayaking, fishing, snorkeling... I can't get over how clear the water is this is truly a natural wonder.
