This is the first time I would give a campground a 3 out of 5 and go back. We really enjoyed the amenities the park offered. The spring is great and we got some bottom time (SCUBA) in every day. The campground needs some love. The grass needed to be cut and the dump station was out of order. If you stay here please note that the White Camping (water and electric only) and Red Camping are close to the spring and swimming. The Blue Camping is too far out back and felt too secluded. We were given a Blue site and we asked to be moved to the front since it felt like we were too far away. We camped at Vortex Spring in a Fifth Wheel.

I'm from Panama, and my family was down from Atlanta. We picked this spot to meet up with each other for a weekend. To be clear, this was a fun weekend, but make no mistake, this place caters to divers, not campers. Gorgeous springs, diving rentals, a swimming hole, lots of activity going on all the time. They also have cabins and houses to rent out. The sites are not clearly marked, but are easy enough to get in and out of. Kids had a blast in the water. No lifeguards though, so be diligent. Overall, we do plan to go back because of the diving/swimming portion where we can camp, too. But if swimming/diving aren't priorities for you... you may want to look to other places as the campsite is not the priority for this area. We camped at Vortex Spring in a Travel Trailer.

Pulled off the highway looking for an overnight stay. Found this park way out in the country. Beautiful setting with super friendly staff. Great diving area available along with swimming and recreation. Great, off the beat spot for family vacationing at a reasonable price. A,lot of people staying there, but surprisingly quite at night. If I ever traveled through this area again, I would not hesitate to stop. We camped at Vortex Spring in a Motorhome.

Very primitive, much sand, roads were in disrepair, sites poorly marked. It took us 50 minutes just to get checked in, staff was new and not very professional. This is an excellent Dive site, great swimming area, kind of small. We left a day earlier than we were supposed to. Hopefully they will bring this park up to standards soon. We camped at Vortex Spring in a Travel Trailer.

Yuk. Sites were awful. Electric boxes falling apart. Only saving grace was the swimming area. A cool spring. I would recommend staying somewhere else and day visiting because this campground is terrible. We camped at Vortex Spring in a Fifth Wheel.

The pull-thru sites aren't. Or at least the site they put us in wasn't a pull thru. There was garbage all through the site we were given. We attempt to hook up to the water and the pipe broke, flooding the campsite. When we informed the office, they didn't seem to concerned. We were. We backed out of our pull-thru site and went back into the office to tell them the water was still pouring out and we'd left because we didn't want to get bogged down. There were kids running all over the place including through our campsite. It looked like a great place to party, but not for an overnight stay. This is a dive place, and serious divers are all around. Try at your own peril. We ended up getting our money back and driving down the road and staying elsewhere. We camped at Vortex Spring in a Motorhome.
