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....

This place has an extremely extensive cave system. Well beyond my abilities but if you're a cave diver you will want to vist this and surrounding areas in Florida. The place is perfectly laid out for divers and is kept impeccable clean. Water is a constant 72 degrees F so plan accordingly. If you're not cave certified you cannot enter... More

The hubby and I dove Ginnie Spring and Devil's Eye and will definitely return. Fun, easy, and beautiful dive sites! We went on a weekday and it wasn't crowded at all. A must-do for divers!

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
