I had my 10 y.o. out in the boat today and we were trying to visit a spring all the way across the river from Ginnie. We HEARD Ginnie before we saw it. Rap music so loud that he and I had to yell at each other in our little boat. Drunks, smell of marijuana, swimmers/tubers clogging the river, monster... More

We rented some kayaks and went down the springs. Beautiful, clear water and there were not a lot of people when we went, so you can really absorb all the natural beauty around you. There are many springs to swim at, and my daughter had fun swimming and watching the divers enter into the caves below.

Love diving at Ginnie Springs Outdoors! Was there for a Rebreather Try and Fly event and enjoyed the diving as well as some open water diving with my wife. Kids really enjoyed swimming in the freshwater springs!

Ginnie Springs is truly a beautiful well laid out camping & tubing attraction. The springs are incredibly beautiful and the campsites are plenty. However there is one element that ruins the entire experience. ALCOHOL. And with that said this place is in fact a party place. It is over crowded with drunken fools that do not respect the property and... More

We arrived at the Springs early Sat morning and found a great site on the water. The floating down the stream was by far the best part part of the trip. Bathhouse was clean and they had a great little trail to easily access. The downside of the trip for us was the extremely loud music and vulgar music that... More

The spring itself is unique and worth a once time visit. We went on the weekend and found it to be overly crowded and very noisy. For the most part was a young, collage age crowd , tubing , drinking, and a little bit rowdy.( but that's ok just wasn't what I had expected) really cut down on the rest... More

RELAXED EXPERIENCE: Adult tickets with an all-day tube rental (return at 5PM) came out to $20 even. The Sante Fe river has a very mild current and you can float down the river from the starting to ending point in less than 2 hours. Ideal activity to hang out/have a drink/talk with friends. There are also places to set up... More

Previous reviews saved us from what would surely have been a miserable camping experience. Instead we heeded the warnings on this site and camped at Oleno State Park, then visited Ginney on Sunday for a day trip only. Even then, it was pretty crowded and we could see plenty of remnants of the partying crowd from the night before. The... More
