I have been to ginnie springs several times over the years. This particular time, was the first time i took my seven year old daughter. She really enjoyed it. I love how you can rent a tube and float down the river. Its so nice, and serene. My daughter prefers to swim and play in the spring, which is beautiful,... More

we visit every chance we get. We try to camp out here at least a couple times a year and make several day trips during the summer. Love coming and floating down the river and checking out the springs. Although it can get crowded on Holidays

We went on a July Monday. The crowd was reasonable in size w/ a tolerable number of drunk adults & limited obnoxiousness. We mostly visited the devils eye and the ginnie springs and had a blast. The stairs were well maintained for good access, and slow decent in to cold water w/out a backup of people stepping on each other... More

Party central for millenials, really loud and not the Ginnie Springs of our youth. The springs are still pristine, clear and cold, but snorkeling was out of the question with all the tubes! Very commercialized and not the place to commune with nature. No capacity limit like other springs parks in the area, so tube traffic jams on the river... More

Campsites are good but the place is an absolute horrible place to stay if you expect to sleep. I saw some of the most ridiculous acts of drunken idiocy ever conceived that went on until wee hours of the morning. People riding around in loud trucks with even louder music looking for attention. Never again.

It is a fun summer weekend get away, the spring is very relaxing and it is more fun if you enjoy it with a bunch of friends.

We decided to make Ginny Springs the first stop on our summertime camping tour. After reading reviews we decided to try and go during the week in order to minimize the drunken party atmosphere we read about. I guess it worked a little but i cant even imagine what it must be like on weekends and/ or holidays. There were... More

My family had a great time tubing down the river. It's better if you bring your own floats. It does get crowded but the place is large and can accommodate large numbers. Will be back to this special place , next time must get a campsite. It cost us $48 for the family to spend the day in the park.

I feel conflicted about only giving 4 stars because it's definitely a 5 star experience. But; like previous reviewers before have stated there is definitely a lack of social consideration. Which is in no way the fault of the park. I found the park to be clean and very well maintained. The bathrooms where not bad.

went with my son to get certified for his open water scuba diving instructed by Fred Schultz (instructor). probably not the most exciting place to get certified but most definitely the safest. Plenty of signs for no pets, dogs were there, no air horns, a very annoying air horn with the ginormous speakers at a large latino get together, no... More
