Ginny was packed when I went this last Saturday July 14, 2018. However I've been there on very slow days. It's a very well maintained (with running water toilets) spring. And drinking is allowed. The spring is huge with lots of great snorkeling on a...More

Absolutely beautiful place! Fun hang out spot but the campsites could use a little attention (fireplace had glass and junk in it) and the map should have roads labeled (it was very easy to get lost and we weren't the only ones).

Beware of the long line to get in! Beware of the $15 per person! Then when you get in, you park and go to a ticket office. Then after that you ride around and attempt to find a parking spot. Then you get to deal...More

The spring itself is absolutely beautiful, but if you are not there when they open at 8:00 you will not be able to enjoy it. Kayaks, canoes, and tubing are all put in at the same location where you snorkel and dive. The small swimming...More

We rented tubes. We had some inclement weather, but decided to stick it out. Dogwood Spring was really nice, nobody else there. The main spring "Ginnie" was nice but very busy, even on a Tuesday. Plan to spend a full day there. Bring water shoes,...More
