I can understand why some people have given this place a bad review. Ginnie Springs is not for the people who are used to a quite campsite in a state park. There is drinking and there is partying. From my experience though the best way to avoid this is to reserve one of the electric sites, even if your just camping. This area mainly has RV's and Travel Campers. It might be more expensive but it also seems to be a lot quieter and you get a larger site that you can hook up a fan or your radio to the electricity hookup. The campground though is wonderful, the people that work there are kind and knowledgable, and the facilities are well maintained. The spring and river are beautiful but very busy during the weekend and remember to bring your snorkeling gear and tube. For those that haven't gone before, beware, this place is huge! There are tons of wilderness campsites and it's a hike to get from one end to the other.
