Ginnie Springs Outdoors is a beautiful place near High Springs, Florida, highlighted by a natural spring.  

This privately owned Florida tourist attraction has many exciting things to do in the outdoors.  Guests can go scuba diving, camping, canoeing and kayaking or a host of other things in a beautiful setting.

The resort sits on more than 200 acres of pristine Florida woodlands near High Springs Florida. 

There are 90 full-service campsites with electric and water hookups.  The resort also has heated bathrooms, picnic tables and grills along with a nice general store for basic supplies.

There are also a number of wilderness campsites suited for tent campers.  The wilderness campsites are scattered throughout the 200 wooded acres.

Ginnie Springs is a pleasant private alternative to Florida State parks camping and busier more heavily visited Florida tourist attractions.

The wilderness campsites are available on a first come first served basis.  Many of these camping sites are on the Santa Fe River or on the spring.  The Santa Fe is a famous Florida river that disappears underground for a significant stretch of its total length.

Most wilderness campsites have a grill and a picnic table, and running water available on some sites.

There are also two small cottages on the site.  Reservations for a cottage should be made well in advance.

The crystal-clear water in the springs gives tremendous underwater visibility.  Scuba diving and snorkeling are very popular.  The inventor of SCUBA, Jacques Costeau, even made a visit and was impressed with the clarity of the water.

Cavern and cave diving are also available for the more experienced and adventurous scuba diver.
