Silver Springs State Park

  • to

  • Silver Springs State Park

    1425 NE 58th Avenue, Ocala, FL (map)

    29.201036 -82.050743

  • Think pristine clear water, glass bottom boat tours, nature trails, kayaking, horse back riding, tubing down the river, Manatee watch in March-April, on and on....  Silver Springs SP is now open for reservations in the winter/spring months. They have availability now, but it will fill up FAST. Early reservations are a MUST. There is so much to do in Silver Springs and we haven't been there, or at least not recently.   Book the lower loop (31-59 there is more availability there).

    Hi Campers, where's it at after Silver Springs?

    November 2

  • Alan L

    Just saw where at least 9 members of the Tallahassee Trailblazers Camping group are joining us for the meetup. This should be fun, meeting other like minded campers and sharing experiences.

  • Alan L

    It's a shame we have to book 7 months in advance to get enough sites for our group. I may try to go down there for a few days in January.

    From Carol M. Please let me know if someone has reservations at the park, can't make it, and needs to cancel. I am still unable to get a reservation. We have a small pop-up camper and would be willing to pay you back for your space. We have not attended one of these events yet!

    August 5

    • Ruthie V.

      Carol - Not sure why you can't get reservations. I just checked and there are plenty of campsites available for March 31-April 2. Have you tried booking on www.floridastateparks.or­g ?

      August 5

    • Alan L

      Carol, I just made a reservation this morning, over 30 sites still left. Did you go to Reserve America, that's how you have to book.

      August 7

  • Alan L

    Just booked 59 for Thurs to Monday. Thrilled that these sites have sewer and I've been wanting to go there after we drove through on the way back from Bradenton last year.

  • Lisa K.

    Hi Ruthie, NO, I didn't notice, didn't even know to look for that. Can I change my reservation? I don't mind sharing with our group- being I'm new to camping- I wanted to be close to the shower- which site do you recommend so I can be with the group?

    July 28

    • Ruthie V.

      You need to read entire descriptions before u choose ur site. I also found out the hard way. choose another site & Call reserve america. They should b able to switch ur site. Not sure where everyone else will be.

      July 28

  • Lisa K.

    Just booked site #040 FK1 for Sat and Sun- as I have to work- too hard to get there on Fri night

    July 28

    • Ruthie V.

      Lisa - did you see that #40 is a "buddy site"? It shares the driveway with #41. there is only 1 driveway...... "41a- Sites 40 and 41 Buddy Sites and are two sites closer together than most of the campsites for the convenience of traveling companions. Each site is a back-in site with picnic table, fire ring, stand up barbecue grill, and electric/water hook up." Just wanted to point that out to you..... Glad you're coming.

      July 28

    • Ruthie V.

      It shares the same driveway as site 40, but has separate hookups.

      July 28
