We sold our pontoon boat after our first visit to the Blue River. It's such a peaceful place to go. You can go hiking, fishing, swimming, photo taking, or just sit and enjoy the birds and wildlife. There are deer and turkeys that can be...More

The Blue River always transports me to some beautiful mountain river in the Rockies. The water is cold and clear and a great place to fish and swim. In the fall, the state stocks the river with trout. It is one of the very few...More

I think it is a standard state fee. I'm not sure of the exact price. I do know you can purchase a day, weekend or year pass. I'm sure if you went on line, it could tell you the price. There is a gas station near the park... More
