Enjoyed the 5.7 mile kayak paddle/float from park to Ray Wayside Park. Saw manatees, alligators, monkeys, various birds and fish. Beautiful springs and scenery. Definitely worth it. Nature abound.
This park is more than just a glass bottom boat tour. Within the park radius—> You have the “Silver Springs Attraction”, the state campground with all it’s hiking/biking trails, Silver River kayaking/paddling , a small museum and lots of history at this park. Then within an aprox 6mile radius (easy biking) you can enjoy Majorie Cross Greenway,Florida Trail, Swamp Lake trails and the state park equestrian trails. Wow! RV and tent sites -some with full hook up and really nice cabins. This was some the best kayaking up and down river….both ways were a joy to paddle. (Watch our kayaking the silver river video on our YouTube channel…resident manatees are often seen on river!!) ~We were here in a 34 foot Class A with only 2 bikes and 2 kayaks~ Happy Camping www.travylcouple.com
Nice quiet area. Lots of history! Restrooms and showers are in nice condition. Washers and dryers as well. Park staff are all very nice as was the campground host.
Lots of Floridas natural beauty but it felt like the camp sites were a bit close together. Very few full hookups most with electricity and water only. Probably won't stay here again
Went here with a group of women campers. We had about 30 total. The screened in porches on the cabins were so big we were able to have a potluck altogether on one porch. Once a month, there’s a volunteer-led tour of the Cracker Village and drumming. The museum was well worth the $2 donation. The hiking trails are well-marked and in good condition. The glass bottom boat tour was a blast. Great facility, great weekend.
Silver springs campground really nice extremely large campsite area is nice fire rings But we wanted to see the monkeys so we brought kayaks with us and went out on the river and got a photo of a rhesus monkey
love the nature and plenty of options for exploring
Has beautiful sandy trails and near the silver springs park that allows kayaking and boat access on 40. You can rent a cabin or park rv. Not the most beautiful Florida park.
Just beautiful kayaking with the chance to see monkeys.
kayaking through the springs you have a chance to see the monkeys that live there. The trip was beautiful there is a store and restaurant on the grounds.
