I camped there for 5 nights while taking my Cave course. It gets a little rowdy Friday and Saturday night, but being so close to a major university it was kind of expected. The... read 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

I camped there for 5 nights while taking my Cave course. It gets a little rowdy Friday and Saturday night, but being so close to a major university it was kind of expected. The grounds are kept in good order, plenty of facilities and trash cans spread out. The spring itself is crystal clear. While I was there I only... More

It's a beautiful place, but for $100 to dive with my own equipment and own kayak, really? No body seemed to know what was going on. We were ignored when we came into the shop. We Are very experienced divers (israel, Egypt, Africa, Thailand, etc), but only in salt water and not cave certified. So. We asked about weight issue.... More

Went out to Ginnie Springs this weekend with a four of my buddies. We found a tucked off campsite with plenty of firewood, picnic tables, and a charcoal grill. We were impressed with the clean facilities, hot water showers, and helpful staff. The river and springs themselves are absolutely beautiful. We floated down two times and jumped off trees and...

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
