Amazing place for snorkeling, scuba diving, camping, or just to get out of the city. Stay away from spring break or any other date that may have students from nearby areas coming here. The place gets very crowed and may not be the appropriate place...More

We have come before to this beautiful place and decided to come back to make a b-bq with our family and friends. We had a great time floating and exploring the beautiful springs and eating our meat and fruits😀

The springs are awesome though if you have kids you'll want life jackets or tubes as the water is pretty deep throughout. It is cold to touch but once you get in it's not bad at all.

Our cub scout pack planned this camping trip. We were able to reserve a large area by the Devil's Eye spring. My son and I pitched our tent right by the river's edge and were greeted by a beautiful sight each morning. We went swimming...More

Expensive camping since per person per night and admission to float. But a fun time and we have camped and floated more than once. It can be a party campground but there are people enforcing rules. We are young at heart so the party atmosphere...More

Joe was so very kind and sweet. He offered us hot coco and was talkative the only reason I liked my trip. Water was cold and rained both nights.

Very hot not good for tent camping unless you like to sweat and mosquitoes are bad at night. The springs are 72 degrees year round so very refreshing on a hot day.

You can access Ginny Springs in a sports car. Some roads are dirt, but they are hard packed and well maintained.
