Blue Spring – National Park Service

See Photo Location

This spring really lives up to its name—the vivid blue water makes this Missouri spring a sight to see; well worth the half-mile walk from the parking area. The spring is 310 feet deep; that is deep enough to cover the Statue of Liberty. At approximately 90 million gallons of water per day, this spring definitely adds its share to the Current River. Blue Spring is one of the many springs that feed the Current River.  The spring may be reached by boat/canoe from the Current River; also by hiking the trail from the parking area located off Route 106 at County Road 535, 12 miles west of Eminence—watch for the Blue Spring sign. Picnic tables are available. Don’t forget your camera. Note: The steep approach road is not paved and is not recommended for large RVs and buses. Part of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways.
