Nice place to learn about Blue Springs and take pictures. We were there in October and the fall folliage was amazing and made for great photos.. Will be back and have told several to check it out!

Beautiful, historical place to visit. Actual Cherokee Trail of Tears camping site and very unique underground spring.

My little group took a tour through Blue Springs, and we were so glad that we did. It was so beautiful and rich in history. We highly recommend a visit here.

The gift shop has fake replicas that are way over priced. $10 person to walk the grounds. Absolutely empty when we showed up which kind of concerned me. Not worth it.

I’m sorry you feel that way. My staff has put a lot of hard work into these gardens. Not a busy time of year for us. I’ve never gotten a “fake” response? That’s a head scratcher for sure!

If you're visiting Eureka Springs, this is one of the places you'll come. It is a nice enough gardens to have a nice walk with your friends and family. Enjoy the flowers in bloom and the spring. It isn't an extensive botanical gardens or arboretum,...More

What a beautiful experience. The woman in the gift shop/entrance was very helpful - and I was jealous because she gets to look at that view every day! A lot of stairs - however the entire thing is wheelchair accessible...it may be a bumpy ride,...More

Roughly $10.00 per adult and about $7.00 per child ages 6-17 years old? Somewhat in that range? Hopefully not too much more!
