Located on the Suwannee River, Lafayette Blue Springs State Park is an inviting source of cool, clear water has attracted people for thousands of years. The spring produces up to 168 million gallons of water daily, making it one of Florida's 33 first magnitude springs. Swimming or snorkeling in the spring is a refreshing activity on a hot day. Bring out the family for a picnic or family reunion. Take a quick swim in one of Florida’s first magnitude springs, or explore the underwater caves if you are a certified cave diver. We hope you will visit soon as we look forward to serving you, your family, and your friends.

River fishing is also a popular recreation. Visitors can enter the park by boat from the Suwannee River as well as by car. Many visitors enjoy the shaded picnic area. White-tailed deer, gray squirrels, red-shouldered hawks, pileated woodpeckers, and barred owls are some of the animals seen in the park. Walk-in tent camping is available for a fee and the construction on our new cabins is complete and will soon be available for rental. During rainy seasons sometimes the dark river water backs up into the springs making the springs appear to be black in color. When this occurs, swimming and diving is prohibited for your safety. Be sure to call the park ahead of time to see if swimming is open.
