Getting to Ginnie Springs Outdoors from I-75, Heading North
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. Take Exit 423, just south of Lake City. From Exit 423, take State Route 47 south, through the flashing light at Columbia City and the stop light in Fort White. 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.
Getting to Ginnie Springs Outdoors from Jacksonville
Use these directions if you are driving south on Interstate 95 from Georgia, or coming west from Jacksonville on I-10.
From I-95 south, take I-295 to skirt the outside of Jacksonville. From Jacksonville, take I-10 west for approximately 25 minutes, to Exit 335 (the second Macclenny exit).
From exit 335, take State Route 121 south, through the towns of Raiford, Lake Butler, Dukes and Worthington Springs. Approximately 30 minutes after exiting I-10, you will pass through the town of Worthington Springs. At the south end of town, you will cross the Santa Fe River bridge.
A little less than three miles further, you will see the turn off for County Road 236.
At the CR-236 intersection, turn right and continue for approximately ten minutes. In the process, you will cross I-75 and enter the town of High Springs. Continue straight through the two stop lights in High Springs, and go approximately one-half mile further to the turn off for 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 approximate 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.
