    This is a small state park. I was expecting a large spring but it was more of a small body of water that emptied into a larger body of water. The path around it is paved and there is a small train mus...  more »

    It's hard to entertain teenagers, but this stop had them interested and engaged. There was plenty of "weird" wildlife (muskrats & crayfish), clear, cold spring water with steam rising from the surface...  more »

    This place is simply beautiful. Drove up from Mountain View, took about an hour and a half, the views driving up were not so great, but once we go there it was well worth the trip. The water was beaut...  more »

    When you need to just get out and experience nature, the Mammoth Spring State Park is a great place to go. The natural Beauty of the spring is a great sight itself. The park has Paddle Boats for those who want to explore the spring close up, a wonderful playground for families with young children, and a Historic Depot which they have transformed into a wonderful museum. And lets not forget the most Beautiful manmade waterfall as the water flows over the Mammoth Spring Dam. The Tourist Information Center also has a great gift shop lots of info for other great attractions in the area.

    On our way to Cave City this is always our favorite place to stop. We love the space to walk around and things and wildlife to look at. The visitor center building could use a little rework. Sometimes it seems like the air isn't working great and the gift shop could be bigger. I also wish the children's shirts weren't just fairly random designs with the name Mammoth Springs slapped on the front. Little tip on real hot days walk down to the bottom of the damn area it's like air conditioning!

    Had a blast! But they have everything locked up now 😔 I remember exploring the train and station as a kid... my children couldn't (we were all disappointed)

    Nice park! The guys really like the ball diamond. Very nice that they have a pop machine with Gatorade on hot days!

    It's a great place to take kids to learn the history of Mammoth Springs and see the dam and ducks and geese and picnic tables for families to eat or cook on the small grills and it's all free for families on limited income and it's fun for the family to spend quality time together
