A wonderful place to spend some time. The caverns are well done and beautiful. Within the area is a beautiful, crystal clear swimming area that is awesome for kids.

It was beautiful here, seriously. Moss everywhere, lovely waterfall, perfectly clear water, and little crinoid stem impressions in rocks. It really was wonderful. Also, fun to climb around.

We stopped by the Blanchard Springs area for a short walk, went to see the Springs and the old Mill by Mirror Lake. The color of the lake is beautiful, reminded us of the water in Alberta Canada! Going down by the mill is tricky,...More

Blanchard Springs is beautiful. Wear your tennis shoes, take a picnic lunch, your bathing suit and spend the day. Nice hiking trails (easy hiking), gorgeous swimming holes, lots of family fun.

Beautiful lake with waterfall. Walk/hike to the waterfall is easy. Perfect view of the waterfall from below. And good for fishing up at the lake.

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.
