We arrived there to enjoy Florida's nature and springs and as a group of 5 families. Site is well maintained but they need to enforce strict nightly rules. There was some kind of... read more

Ginnie springs brought me to Florida ten years ago and is still my favorite place. The cave diving is spectacular, but the cavern is a good dive for open water divers and the river offers tubing fun for all ages. If you don't want the frat house experience do not go on a holiday weekend, just don't. You will see... More

I wish that I had written down the names of a couple of staff at the Dive Shop/check in office as the lady who seemed to be the manager was very good and the young man who assisted me with my dive equipment was spectacular and extremely customer service minded. The property is absolutely beautiful but too many dirtbags do... More

i visited for the weekend with friends, we had a blast! The springs were so pretty and refreshing and the river was nice and smooth to float down for the day, we also jumped off a rope swing into the river then after roasted marshmallows for smores underneath the beautiful nights sky. we will definitely be coming back.

We arrived there to enjoy Florida's nature and springs and as a group of 5 families. Site is well maintained but they need to enforce strict nightly rules. There was some kind of fest going on at a nearby camp where the participants slept during the day and partied all night with howling, shrieking, what not! One night they lit... More

Came here today with friends, and our boys had a blast. They loved the springs, playing in the water and splashing around. This place is a great way to get out and about with nature.

Love this place. A great place to dive and because it is a flowing spring it does not silt up (gets blown out). Nice dive shop, wish I had spent more time inside.... next time!! Facilities are nice, but looking forward to the campground to finish putting up the grounded dive tables. River had lots of tanins in it but... More

Went with my boyfriend for a single night of primitive camping, found a spot right on the river (no electric sites are right on the water). The property is well maintained and clean but if you see any beer cans or trash it's probably very recent as some of the college groups don't respect the land. Your experience here other... More

Enjoyed a late afternoon scuba dive with a small dive group (pre-planned ). My first visit, and I absolutely loved it. Water is stunningly clear, perfect for anyone with goggles. Diving into the underwater cavern was exciting, though the cavern isn't very large (neither is the spring pool). Nice stairs into water, but prepare for sand from the parking lot... More

Well maintained and managed. Camp grounds are well kept and clean. Staff are always really kind and helpful. We arrived Friday night and it was FREEZING! We had a little trouble finding the spot we wanted but when we did everything was fine. We stayed on the water/electric are on #27. Short walk to the River. Very close to the... More

Well maintained and managed. Clean but can get crowded. Staff are always really kind and helpful. A ton of fun as long as it isn't a holiday weekend.
