Fun dive

One day dive trip. Really nice facility and the cavern was fun to dive. Snorkeled to the river and floated with the fish. Look for the little fresh water flounder!

This "Water Park" is a great area to have a family gathering, or just to hang out for the day. I've spent many vacations here enjoying the slower pace. You have 3 parts to the park...There is the Tenting side, the RV side and lastly there is a cottage. The primitive camping sites have a grill and picnic table and... More

The Devil’s year and the Devil’s eye provide world-class cave diving in a fun, family-friendly environment. Also, has great diving for the non-cave diver.

First off let me say that the springs are absolutely beautiful. But, it's a shame they are being ruined by all the trash that ends up in them by the disrespectful drunks. We visited back in July and I was completely disappointed. The website made it sound like a good family park, but in actuality it is a big college... More

I love Ginnie Springs! I'm counting down the days until the park is open again. My husband and I have visited several springs in FL, and what we like about Ginnie is the laid back and fun atmosphere. Don't expect the pristine clear water of the Itchetucknee, this float is mostly on a river. At the various spring heads you... More

The campground was nice and we had a very spacious campground site with electricity hookups. The water was chilly but easy to get used to, and the food at the front camp shop was delicious. However, other reviewers were not kidding about the noise and partying. There were fireworks going off well into the night, easily past 2:00 or 3:00am.... More

No words can describe the true beauty of this place. The water is crystal clear but vey cold, I recommend a wetsuit even just for swimming. My only pet peeve is all the party people that were there, but I guess you can't win them all.

I saw an aggressive white american went to the tent of Brazilian and Puerto Rican Guys on October 11, 2015. This american white was to the tent of Brazilian and Puerto Rican and insulted the womans of the party. After that, the Brazil and Puerto Rican were forced to leave the park. Of course, the American White lied on the... More

Totally amazing! The springs is crystal clear -- great for swimming, snorkeling, cavern diving. This area is large enough to accommodate alot of activities. Camping and RVs are both encouraged; rental cottages are available as are a laundromat and dump station. Tubing, rafting, canoeing are offered. The day we were there, the river was quite muddy but it did not... More
