Due to high water and brown-out conditions, Madison Blue Spring has been closed to swimming and diving. When conditions improve the spring will once again be open for these recreational activities. All other facilities are available at this time.


 Welcome to Madison Blue Spring State Park

Located in one of Florida┬┤s newest state parks, this crystal clear, first magnitude spring is a popular spot for swimming. About 82 feet wide and 25 feet deep, the spring bubbles up into a limestone basin along the west bank of the Withlacoochee River. Scenic woodlands of mixed hardwoods and pines create a picturesque setting for picnicking, paddling, and wildlife viewing. Madison Blue Spring is approximately ten (10) miles east of Madison on the west bank of the Withlacoochee River. From Madison, drive east on State Road 6 to the Withlacoochee River. Turn south on the west side of the bridge at the park sign. The entrance to the spring is 525 feet south of the highway.
