“10+ distinct natural communities”

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.

Took a walk on the trails - very well marked and well maintained. Very interpretive as well. Campsites are spacious and clean. 80-90 foot tall pines surrounding us. Recommend to anyone who loves the outdoors.

We enjoyed the boat tour a lot. Good captain who made sure everyone could see each point of interest. It's annoying to pay $8 to enter the park and then pay to ride the boats if you're not staying to do other things at the park. That being said, the springs are beautiful and soo clear.

Had the best time!!! Rented a canoe and took the glass bottom boat ride. Both are a must! Worth the trip.
