Directions
Getting to Ginnie Springs Outdoors from I-75, Heading North Use these directions if you are driving north on Interstate 75 from the Tampa Bay area, or from Florida’s Turnpike, coming through Orlando. Take I-75 north through Ocala and Gainesville. Thirteen miles north of Gainesville, look for and take Exit 399 (the Alachua exit). From Exit 399, take US-441 north approximately five miles to the town of High Springs. At the first stop light in High Springs (at the Hardee’s), turn left onto state road 27/41. Continue through the next stop light, at the center of town, and go approximately one-half mile on main street to County Road 340/NE 182nd Avenue. (You will see a sign on top of a pole indicating that this is the turn off for Ginnie, Blue and Poe Springs.) Turn right on to County Road 340 and go West approximately 6.5 miles, to the sign indicating the turn off to Ginnie Springs (NE 60th Ave.) Turn right at the sign (NE 60th Ave.) and go approximately one mile further to the Ginnie Springs Outdoors entrance. Getting to Ginnie Springs Outdoors from I-75, Heading South Use these directions if you are driving south on Interstate 75 from Georgia, or coming east from the Florida Panhandle on I-10.

Approximately 20 minutes after getting off I-75, and four miles south of Fort While, you will cross the Santa Fe River bridge. There are two ways to get to Ginnie from State Route 47: Approximately two miles south of the Santa Fe River you will see a green sign mounted on top of a pole along the highway’s shoulder, indicating the approaching turn off to Ginnie Springs. This is a county lime rock road and sometimes is in poor repair. We suggest that you proceed past the sign to the flashing yellow light at County Road 340. Turn left and go approximately 2 miles to NE 60th Ave (look for the Ginnie sign). Turn left and go about one mile further to the Ginnie Springs Outdoors entrance.

Best Springs Around!

This campground was huge! They had a camp store, playground, walking trails, volley ball, snorkeling, diving, and kayak rentals. A little bit for everyone to enjoy. The campground accommodates very well, there were enough bathrooms and maintenance that it wasn’t bad at all. There are limited electric sites which makes it tricky in the summer but so worth it to cool off in the springs any time of night. This is also the only spring you can drink on even get a keg delivered to your site. Please be curious of the nature we get to enjoy and clean up after yourself in the water and out.

Favorite place in the world

Love this place

Favorite Springs in Florida

Favorite springs in Florida and one of my favorite places to camp and spend a few days in Florida or the country in general. Awesomely maintained, plenty of sites. Plenty of bath houses and area to roam and swim. 10-10

Great time!

We had an amazing time. The springs were beautiful, you have access to tube down the lake and access other springs as well. Water is refreshing, bathrooms could be cleaner. If you want to relax stay away on the weekends, college kids are everywhere

Best camping with snorkeling

4 stars

The frat house of camping

Dont let the Title fool you! I still love this campground, it is a bit pricey however the staff and rangers keep this place in TOP condition. Prepare for loud nights though and tons of drinking/music/wild humans. Its mostly fun! I actually met a guy wearing a squid hat and he was DJing in a Yurt tent or something. Very interesting and fun.

Private but costly

beautiful, private and fun if you like floating down the river. Bathrooms are decent. You pay per person per day and MUST pay to float even if you don’t float in addition per person camping fee.

Party Camping

Sites are small and include a picnic table and charcoal grill. Fires are allowed, but there are no fire pits. Be careful during the summer some of the sites will flood. if you reserve early you can get a site by the river. There is a tube trail that will take you to the put in and take out for tubing.

Fun but loud

Anytime I have ever visited Ginnie Springs we have had a blast. This campsite is always busy even in torrential downpours. The store is well stock cold drinks firewood ice food kayak scuba paddle board rentals. If you left it at home this store has it! The staff is super friendly and helpful. We had a dead car battery one time visiting and they had someone out to fix it. They have electric and water sites as well as an abundace of tent sites. There are plenty of bathhouses mostly muddy but you can get a hot shower. You can dive or snorkel in the crystal clear springs in several spots along the Santa Fe river. But you have to go early or late the springs are way over crowded on the weekends. The store offers tube rentals so that you can float down the river with several take outs that are very clearly marked. You can also take your own floats and the camp store offers free air to blow them up. We have always had so much fun floating down but it is not the place to look for peace and quiet. We have been there many nights with people coming I. And setting up camp well past midnight blaring music and yelling. Other than it being a party spot it is a great place to go.
