History of Lafayette Blue Springs State Park
Lafayette Blue Springs is one of the state’s 33 first magnitude springs. In the mid to late 1800s, this section of the Suwannee River was an important highway for steamboats carrying supplies and agricultural products to and from local plantations. The establishment of railroads signaled the end of the steamboat era. Lafayette Blue Springs has been a public park for many years. It became a state park in 2005 and consists of approximately 702 acres. In March 2008, the park celebrated the grand opening of the cabins and the designation of those cabins at Green Lodges. On hand to offer congratulations was DEP Deputy Secretary Bob Ballard, Florida State Parks Director Michael Bullock along with leaders from the Suwannee River Water Management District and the Lafayette County Commission.
