Peace & Quiet
We stopped at Silver Springs State Park for an overnight stay on our way from Iowa to Daytona. What a beautiful adventure. The park is nestled off the beaten path with an array of natural walking trails, which we had primarily to ourselves. Quiet & solitude and it was amazing. This is one of the oldest parks in Florida and therefore established trees and foliage tuck you away. The gravel sites were spacious and level with picnic tables and firerings and you were not on top of your neighbors. We visited in March so campground was not to capacity. The bathhouse was well maintained and sparkling clean. The women's restroom was spacious and accomodated three showers with two additional unisex shower locations. Well maintained laundry for $1.75 and a community area to wash dishes and such with a vending machine. We had many visitors in the way of squirrels to entertain us. Electric and water with a dump station close by. My only regret is that we did not stay longer.

Wonderful Staff, Facilities
We camped in a 30 ft MH. All spaces are huge and well shaded and very level, with big fire ring and table. A few have sewer, and all have water and new electric. Bathhouses are spotless with plenty of hot water. Coin op laundry for$1.75/load. Hiking trails to the river. Do not try to bike the connector path to the main springs; path is very sandy, and not well marked. You can take sidewalk whole way along Rte 35 to Rte 40. Definitely do a2 hrs kayak, or glass bottom boat tour. Unfortunately the store and education center were still closed as of March 2021. Florida State Parks are great!

What A Gem!
Large, level, gravel sites, lots of shade and vegetation between sites for privacy. Water & electric hookups; some sites also have sewer. Flush toilets, showers, laundry (1washer, 1 dryer) $1.00. Super clean and well maintained. We had to evacuate, after 1 night, due to an incoming hurricane so didn't get to do much, but loved, loved, loved this CG. We WILL be back. $12 for senior Florida resident. Be sure to enter from the WEST, not the south. (ask me how I know).

Nice Sites
Nice camping sites, large with E/W, clean large bathrooms with showers. Bring bug spray, mosquitos can be fierce! Close to entrance for Silver Springs Park for Kayaking, a must if you come here!

Impressive
What a nice campground! Spacious and well laid out sites. Bathhouses are large and clean. Plenty of things to do here and peaceful enough to just kick back and relax. I definitely want to go back to this one.

Peaceful Stay
Spring head is 1.5 miles from campground entrance. It was a fun stay. Quiet and peaceful. Lot's of shade at campsites. Would definitely stay here again.

This is one of our favorite parks. Large, wooded sites so you can’t see your neighbors very well. Some sites have sewer. Lots of walking trails and roads.

Perfect Campground
Could not have asked for a more beautiful setting! Campground is well maintained, gracious hosts, hot showers, fire ring and water at all sites. We took our canoe and fished on the river that connected to the lake. Favorite place to dry camp. We visit often. You have to reserve online, however there are two walk ups available for $10.

Fantastic Campground!
Loved camping here! Easy access, beautiful, large, level sites and some even have sewer hook ups! The Campground has many hiking and biking opportunities. The springs offer glass bottomed boats, canoes/kayaks, and hiking. There are also equestrian and mountain bike trails too! While there isn't any swimming in the park, Juniper Springs is about a 30 minute drive to the east. It's well worth the drive!

Beautiful
Best park yet! Park was full, yet we couldn't see another RV from any window. Lovely areas to walk, and bath house and laundry very clean. Hosts kept areas clean and bug free.
