If your idea of fun is 200 beautiful acres of nothing but loud, shirtless, beer drinking, truck driving, ATV driving idiots, then this place is for you my friend. One word of caution, watch where you step, the entire park is covered in beer bottle caps that shine in the Florida sunshine.....even in the springs! It's a damn crying shame that such a beautiful place is being absolutely trashed. This place has sooooo much potential that is going down the drain. It's probably a great place during the week when everyone who has a job is working, but I would avoid the place on the weekends and when school is out..........that is if these people actually go to school!? As far as the springs themselves are concerned, they are a site to behold and are fantastic and beautiful. The staff was very helpful and kind, but the camp sites are left wanting. Very dirty, lots of trash and the electric and water hook ups are on the wrong side of the sites! Did get to see some wild life other than the naked drunks......several wild turkeys and a hawk visited our site. The best thing that could happen to Ginnie Springs would be for the State or Federal government to come in and make it a park!
