My family has spent many weekends camping at Ginnie. My husband and I scuba, the kids snorkel, and we all enjoy tubing and kayaking. The water is always cold, but on a hot summer day, a real treat. I highly recommend this park for the day or a weekend camping trip.

I think people ought to know this place is always full of drunken college kids on the weekends. Actually, it's hemoraging beer bottles and buffoonery. It's a beautiful property, but it's very loud. THe last time I stayed there, I barely slept between all the hooting and hollering and bass pumping stereos.

This property is beautiful yes, yet it is also ill kept as far as clean up. Amongst other things we found in our campsite an entire broken beer bottle, batteries, a steak knife & an old rusty hanger. All things that the park employees should have caught I felt. Especially being the price you pay to camp here. It's based per person & a family of 4 can easily spend upwards of $50 per night. It is privately owned so you do not have to check out untill 30 min before sunset which is nice. The Springs are beautiful but yes it is a party place. We stayed in the electric side which was fairly quiet but we could tell the river side sites had some partying going on & we were glad we were in the electric side. Quiet time is not untill midnight. We really did not hear anything once we were in our pop up though. Sites were a little small w/no adequate "woods buffer" between sites (yet we had no immediate neighbors so this was ok). All things considered we would return & our experience was a pleasant one. We kayaked we swam we had a great time!

Beautiful Springs with lots of turtles sunning themselves on rocks along the river, BUT EXTREMELY crowded with Drunken, Pot Smoking College students screaming, hooting, and hollering. I went there with my husband and 3 yr old. I loved the springs but would not go back due to the above mentioned issues.

I thought I was at a Dead concert again, only the kids were not peaceful.
