Enjoyed a late afternoon scuba dive with a small dive group (pre-planned ). My first visit, and I absolutely loved it. Water is stunningly clear, perfect for anyone with goggles. Diving into the underwater cavern was exciting, though the cavern isn't very large (neither is the spring pool). Nice stairs into water, but prepare for sand from the parking lot... More

Well maintained and managed. Clean but can get crowded. Staff are always really kind and helpful. A ton of fun as long as it isn't a holiday weekend.

Contrary to previous reports, this park is very clean kept. Beautiful sites on the water and very friendly staff. With the help of Biscuit, Will, and many others working there, I would definatly return and reccomend to friends. Keep it beautiful, leave only your footprints.

Visited with a group of friends, hired inflatable donut rings and floated down the river. So relaxing and chilled out! There were a group of people with a floating stereo the first time we went down, that was brilliant! Actual spring pools were freezing compared to the summer heat. Recommendations: Bring string or something to tie your group together, the... More

I stayed here in my RV for two weeks. It was amazing. The people where friendly and treated me well. I took my time to scope the place out ahead of time for dump site access, and picked a good time when the crowds were down to move the RV and dump. Site had electric and good drinking water. Was...

Definitely wouldn't take my young children there, especially near a holiday. It is more for the younger adults who like to drink alcohol. It was definitely laid back and a really neat place.

Ginnie Springs has a plethora of opportunities when it comes to diving. We had two dives and I feel like we just got started. You can free dive, open water dive, cave dive, or just swim and snorkel around. We dove Ginnie Spring then devils ear and drifted back to Ginnie spring with the current in the Santa Fe river....
