This park has more than 10 distinct natural communities, dozens of springs and miles of trails. Visitors can canoe down the crystal clear river, hike or bike along one of the nature trails, or just sit and watch for the wide variety of birds and wildlife. The picnic area features three pavilions with grills that may be rented for group outings and a playground for the youngsters. For overnight stays, the park has a full facility campground and 10 luxury cabins. There is also a primitive campground for use by organized groups (scouts, church groups, etc.) The park is home to a pioneer cracker village and the Silver River Museum and Environmental Education Center. The center is operated by the Marion County School District in cooperation with the park and is open to the public on weekends and holidays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00. p.m. Admission to the Museum is $2.00 per person. Children under 6 are free. For more information please visit Silver River Museum
Beautiful well kept park. The sites here are all large and will fit any size rig. Many of the sites are pull through. If you are camping here you get free admittance to the day use park at the springs. Nice boardwalk to walk there and there are glass bottom boats(for extra cost) that you can get on for a tour of the crystal clear springs. No swimming or gas powered boats are allowed to preserve the waters of the springs. Several years ago monkeys were brought to the park and placed on a small island. The monkeys turned out to be good swimmers and quickly left the island and can now be seen roaming free in the park and surrounding areas. We saw some when we walked the marsh trail. Great stop were we enjoyed lots of biking and hiking.
