We visited Ginnie Springs as we had heard about how much fun it was. We arrived and proceeded to check-in for our day pass at the main visitor's center. The process although quick was somewhat confusing but we purchased our individual passes and rented a tube for the day. I believe the entrance fee is somewhat high for what the... More

We had 4 teenagers with us. They had an amazing time. Place was quite busy when we visited but we still had a amazing time. Everyone was friendly and you honestly cannot beat the scenery or the springs. Will definitely visit again.

Very poor customer service, the staff was all very rude and couldn't be bothered. Too many drunk people for it to be a family environment. The river is cold, but is so overgrown with plants that it makes it difficult to peacefully float down the river. There was poop, vomit, and a bloody sanitary pad in the female showers and... More

Been coming here to cave dive for more than 20 years, and as always, that experience is always fabulous. Had some friends visiting from Europe, and it was great to show them a cave they had heard and read so much about. Summer time (post Labor Day until Columbus Day) this is a POPULAR spot for canoeing, kayaking, and tubing.... More

I have been visiting Ginnie Springs since 2003. I'm in the military and we have a camping trip here just about every year. Every other year has been fun but this year was ruined by the manager, Beth. She basically discriminated against me and my 7 other military brothers because of a "fight" that she couldn't provide any details for,... More

The water is crystal clear, you can see all the way to the bottom everywhere. But beware - it's COLD (at least for this Floridian)! Beautiful surroundings, beautiful trees, I didn't want to leave. There is a store and deli in case you forget something. The only thing I wasn't satisfied with was that I called to try Discover SCUBA... More

we decided last minute to add Ginnie Springs to our road trip. What a great idea! The water is cold but we had a lot of fun tubing and swimming in the springs. We also had a great lunch at their on site deli. Was pleased because there isn't much for food around the area.

I have three kids ranging from 9 to 2 years old. My bigger two kids know how to swim and snorkeled for hours without getting bored.we visited in July so the freezing cold temperatures of the water was a welcome relief. Trust me it's not so bad once you get in. The area around Ginny Springswas also beautiful. When we... More

Just got home from our first camping experience at Ginnie. It was such a breath taking place. The water at Ginnie is so clear it is like looking through glass, it is really something else. The water is freezing but just jump in and enjoy, it is just amazing. The clarity, the bright blue had me in awe. It is... More
