The path is shaded and safe for walkers with the splashing stream just to the right. I have visited here several times since the 1960s even before the Caverns were opened. It is a favorite and we enjoyed our picnic here although there was no...More

You will enjoy the scenic drive to get there and the destination itself. The spring is right next to the cave & a picnic area, so you can have a great time doing all three. Yes, you can wade in the water at the picnic...More

Blanchard Spring's recreation area is a great place to camp with or with out kids. Quite camp ground and plenty of hiking, fishing and exploring to do within the area.

It is definitely worth taking the time to go down and see the spring and the area around there. They have it set up very nicely and it is easy to get to. It is just a beautiful area!

Great for hiking, photography, or just relaxing. The scenary can't be beat and the trails aren't nearly as challenging as they make them out to be.

I grew up in the Ozarks, so postcard views are "normal" to me. If you have not had that same experience, I am sorry. You really need to stop by Blanchard Springs and bring your camera, or sketchbook. The hikes are perfect, the scenery never-ending,...More

This is one of the most beautiful sites that I have ever seen. If you like nature you won't want to miss this attraction. Words can't describe the beauties of this area.

We didn't camp. However, all of the Blanchard Springs cabins were rented and we had to stay outside the park. I suggest reserving a campsite to ensure you have one.

Sylamore creek is a great place to paddle around in a kayak but I would steer clear of the White River because the current is pretty swift there.
