Welcome to Madison Blue Spring State Park
This crystal-clear, first-magnitude spring is a popular spot for swimming and cave diving.
About 82 feet wide, 25 feet deep, and a 150-foot spring-run merging with the river, 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.
Voted the No. 1 swimming hole in the country by USA Today, Madison Blue Spring is a family favorite destination and a fantastic place to spend the day.
