Blue Springs (Gilchrist County)
Blue Springs is a second-magnitude spring which discharges north to the Santa Fe River.
The 72-degree Farenheit water is the same temperature year-round and provides a refreshing break in the hot weather. You can bring a tube and float down the spring run to the Santa Fe River. An elevated quarter mile-long wooden boardwalk extends from Blue Spring north along the spring run to the Santa Fe River.
Four smaller springs (Little Blue, Naked, Johnson and Kiefer) are also located on the property.
Canoes, kayaks and tubes are available for rent. Covered picnic pavilions are available, and there is a concession stand onsite. The park also provides RV and primitive camping, bath houses with showers, and restroom facilities.
