Make sure to top off your visit to Blue Springs State Park by cruising the crystal clear spring water in one of our inner tubes or snorkeling gear.

Rent an inner tube and slowly drift down the tree-lined spring run from the boil, or if you really want an up-close view of the fish and turtles that call the spring their home, rent a mask, snorkel, and fins and dive right on in. Also be sure to store your valuables in one of our many lockers right inside of our cozy gift shop.
