    Natural Features

    The semi-tropical region gives the campground a mixture of pines and palms, with lush greenery and warm temperatures. Within the recreation area, a natural spring rises from cracks deep within the earth. The presence of potassium, magnesium and sodium salts give the waters a slight salinity - hence the name Salt Springs.

    A 64-site campground offers 26 primitive tent sites and 38 sites with power and water hookups. A dump station, picnic pavilions and boat ramps are located in the campground.

    The 9,500-acre Rodman Reservoir is perennially rated in the Top 10 Trophy Bass Lakes in Florida by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

    The 67-site Rodman Campground is located approximately 9 miles southwest of Palatka off State Route 19 on Rodman Dam Road.

    The Rodman Reservoir provides a diverse and extensive habitat for not only trophy fish but numerous avian species as well. Many endangered and threatened species of wading birds, waterfowl, bald eagles and others use the reservoir, particularly during the cooler months. There are also numerous alligators, turtles and even manatees that inhabit and travel through the reservoir seasonally.

    The campground and reservoir were originally created during the 1960s-era Cross Florida Barge Canal project. The mammoth public works project was started in 1964 when President Lyndon B. Johnson flew into Palatka and started the project with a ground-breaking explosion at the nearby Rodeheaver’s Boys Ranch.

    Almost 50 years later, the nearby Kirkpatrick Dam still remains intact, impounding the Ocklawaha River and maintaining the reservoir. A political and environmental battle continues since the reservoir was first flooded in November of 1968 of whether to maintain and manage Rodman as it is, or to remove significant portions of the earthen dam and restore the “Free Flowing Ocklawaha River."
