There’s a nice, level boardwalk that makes it easy for all ages & fitness levels to go see the falls. They are absolutely beautiful. There’s also an old mill you can see fully from the boardwalk. We got some great pics. It’s a must see!

There were too many people for our actual liking, but this place is beautiful. Even if you don’t take the wonderful cavern tour, you should still visit this area. (But I highly recommend the cave tour). The walkway to the waterfall is nice and there...More

We drove around the area on our motorcycle, thoroughly enjoying it, and took two of the three cave tours! Do not miss the cave tours!! There is also a gift shop, and the tour guides are great!

This is a beautiful natural attraction. So relaxing and worth the drive. Great place to hike or just enjoy the beauty of the spring. Nice camping area and bathroom facilities.

Grew up here and don't get back as much as I would like too. Many great memories. Park is well maintained and has a lot of activities for swimming, camping and hiking. Love this place.

The entire Blanchard Springs area is very nice. There are a couple of short easy hikes and also some longer more difficult hikes. The area is clean. The park service and people who use the park seem to take care of it. We saw families...More

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.
