Nice quite stop on our trip to Eureka springs. Enjoyed the walk around the spring. Nice history at the site. Make sure you take a couple of quarters to feed the fish !

Just a short distance off Route 62 near Eureka Springs, this gem of history (on the Trail of Tears) and botanical beauty is very much worth an hour or so of your time. Great for exploring with children also.

They charge $10 an adult to look at water. You can look at springs for free all over the state of Missouri, all over the country even for free. No need to pay $10 to look at water, just look at the photos others have...More

This place is on the Historic Register for good reason. There is a short video clip available before you walk the grounds that gives you a lot of history about the area. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the Spring is fabulous! 38 M gallons...More

I see a lot of complaints in other reviews. We had the best time! It's a beautiful area and the spring is something to see. Very nice little hike and gardens. Spent about an hour there.

Will visit again. Might be the best "attraction" in Eureka Springs. Spend a little time and photograph the butterflies, snakes, buzzards, etc

We were at Blue Spring for about an hour in July. There had been a storm overnight, and they hadn't tidied up yet. The grounds were attractive, but it was obvious that a lot of the gardens were well past their peak. The spring itself...More

If you have the time to watch the video in the visitors center before you go to the spring, you should. It had lots of interesting facts. There are a lot of staircases to get down to the spring. There is a wheelchair accessible path...More

I agree. The springs and the gazebo are excellent and beautiful locations for a proposal. If you are Native American, you may be inspired in the Medicine Wheel Garden, as I am.
