Blue Spring is a natural wonder, pouring 38 million gallons of cold, clear water each day into its trout-stocked lagoon.Start your adventure with an insightful historic film in the Visitor Center, then stroll the handicapped-accessible walkways and inviting garden paths that wind through the 33 acres of native gardens. Visit the historic mill site that dates from the 1840's, see the Bluff Shelter on the National Register of Historic Places, and walk along the path of the Trail of Tears. Resident Appaloosas and abundant native flora and fauna delight visitors, and our charming gift shop offers an array of items to keep the exerience alive. Blue Spring is a quiet getaway and a perfect place for weddings, group outings or any special occasion.

Long drive from Eureka Springs. Have to pay to walk from parking to the Springs. When the river is high it hides the blue hole.

You must take the time to ponder on the marvel of the clean, blue water that is so magical. Also, think about The Trail of Tears where Cherokees were forced from their homelands and driven to Oklahoma: another crime of the U.S. Government!

You must go at the right time of the season to get the full affect of the 77 foot waterfall. We only got to see it at about 10 feet because it was so dry. But it has a nice gift shop, clean and friendly...More
