July 30 family tradition by The Linsons
we go every year to canoe on the current river and on our way down we stop by Big Spring. Its a beautiful place to visit and our kids love it. We recently got engaged while visiting the spring so now it will always be special to us.

My family and I have been going year once a year during the month of July to float the current river as well as stay at Big Springs National Park. We also bring along other families who always love going... even children!

I have very many fond memories of this place as we went at least twice a month camping and one week a year for vacation.. we had a ball camping, swimming and floating current river...
December 15 Very beautful and Romantic setting by OliannaEngland
My fiance and I are hoping to have our wedding there this fall. We visited shortly after we got together and now every summer on our way to go floating we always make a stop there to enjoy memories and the amazingly beautifull sites. The water is such a gorgeous shade of blue and it would make for the perfect back drop to our ceremony. He really enjoys the caves, am very much looking forward to starting our life together and I think next to the spring where it is the beginning of so much would be very symbolic and romantic.
September 12 Beautiful! by Mary McCoy
The park was beautiful and the springs was awesome! I have never seen such beautiful blue water.
July 13 My favorite place in Missouri by Steven
I was born in Missouri, my father helped build the Big Springs State Park while he was in the C.C.C. Corps, along with some of his friends. I was told that there is a picture in the museum-store, there at the park, of all the people that helped build the park, when they were in the C.C.C. Corps. I would like to see if I can get a print of it, to send to my Mother, as it should have my Father in it, and he pasted away in 1987. There were six boys in my family, and every Labor Day Week End, Dad would say, where do you boys want to go, and it was always , Big Springs State Park. Four of us learned to swim in the Current River.
June 20 It is all at your finger tips! by kmpnn76
Yes, the fun does not stop there. The kayaking and flowing down the lazy river is the best. It is the first time experianed that welecomes the best at heart. We would like to meet others for a day on the river. Food snacks and canned soadas for a start.
