More funny to spend a whole day than blue springs, but both are amazing! Rent a kayak or something else to go river down..

Went with a few friends for a camping trip. We were having a ton of fun floating down the river, swimming and enjoying the springs. Definitely some major downsides that would deter me from returning. The park is privately owned, so unlike a State park, they can charge whatever they please. $12 for day entry and $6 for a tube... More

One of my favorite springs, Clear and spotless. Smaller than others but has great character. Somehow seems to be slightly warmer than the others.

Most relaxing place in Florida. Water is cold but perfect for the hot humid florida heat. Good food and coffee at the main building. Restrooms facilities and showers very nice, good clean grounds.

Like many other reviewers I have had several different experiences at Ginnie Springs Outdoors. If you go during the weekdays during the summer it isn't too crowded. However do during the weekends once UF and SFCC are back in full swing and you'll be in for a crowded experience. Ginnie Springs is the only spring in the area that allows... More

This was our first camping trip to Ginny Springs and most of the reviews were right. While we made some good choices, like campsite location, we made the mistake of staying through a weekend. Not that we were too shocked by the nightlife - but it got old when they were still whooping and hollering well past 2am. There was... More

We went on a day that wasn't all that hot and boy was it cold. Didn't take long to get used to though. Really pretty area. The kids had never swam in a spring and I wanted them to see the crystal clear waters. Saw some fish, turtles, and vultures but not too much else animal wise. Went on a... More

Just got home from a three day weekend of camping at Ginnie Springs and must say it was excellent! The grounds are very well maintained, the staff very friendly and the facilities had everything we needed. This was our first time camping and we had our 12 year old in tow. I was honeslty a little worried after reading reviews... More

We went down for the day to Float the Santa Fe River with friends and had a wonderful time. The whole operation is well run, clean, and offers a lot for your money. We were just there to kick back, have a picnic, and float the river a couple of time. It wasn't crowded. Lots of young people and families... More
