This was my first camping experience, and I officially love it! The grounds were very well maintained, and the security was quite satisfactory. The grounds have bath houses in several different locations, which is very convenient. You can either find a campsite that is a bit secluded, or right near the main road or the river. They have a large... More

Great place to scuba dive and swim! The amenities are top notch and the staff is very friendly. The only downfall for diving is that it gets a little crowded on weekends and holidays, but I guess great place attract a lot of people!

This park is beautiful and the tubing was fun. The reason I give it three stars is smoking and alcohol are allowed. There is also a "party crowd" here so I would not recommend for families.

After taking our nice to beautiful University of Florida in Gainesville this past week, going thru the hustle of running to stores to get all the little things she needed needed to move into her apartment, we took time to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the region. Ginnie Springs (www.ginniespringsoutdoors.com) , a private nature park located about 30-45... More

Ginnie Springs and the surrounding springs in the park were my favorite that we visited while in High Springs. Though we heard from many that Ginnie can be very crowded and not very family friendly, we did not experience this. We went during the week and did not feel crowded. The majority of the patrons there were families. Excellent snorkeling... More

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
