Stayed Feb 2016 to April 22 2016 Clean park. Management and staff were friendly. Sites sand-grass, sunny/open to some shade, nearby to spacious lot spacing, and included a picnic table. There were several activities in the park; the park has been underrated by people that formerly resided in the park and gave it a bad rating due to their behavior in the park. Its a nice park. Good value. - E Hayward

Would never recommend this park to anyone. Dirty bathrooms, no toilet paper, pool not open most days, manager and others in park get visits from sheriff too often, says credit cards taken but manager made us pay cash for two months in advance. Rain makes it a swampland, had to go barefoot to get to vehicle or wade in water and mud and ruin shoes. Could be great park but poor management and too much drama. - Traveler2440

Short bumpy hard dirt road entrance from highway. Excellent Wi-Fi. Sites are all on dirt or mud, when it rains. We were there when there was mud. 10+ sites were too muddy to use. No cement pads/patios or site picnic table. Very close to the Ocala National Forest. Takes PA but only for stays of 3+ days. Friendly management escorted us to site. Didn't see any showers nor were there any indicated on the map. Suggest staying here if you like a rustic setting, and then only during dry times. Not a great value. - LeeCA

Good swimming, lots of tourist. Nice staff. Silver Springs is a great place to see. About 20 minutes to Palatka and also very close to the Ocala National Forest. About 2 hours to Orlando. Wi-Fi spotty and a few tv channels but that was fine as we were there for Silver Springs. - EACreech

Overall this was a nice park. We wanted someplace wooded and secluded but was disappointed when we arrived. The sites are small and mostly taken up by snowbirds.
Staff was friendly and site was clean. - Senora Frog

Just a warning to others....... Their website is VERY misleading. We needed a place to stay for a month in Central Florida. We called from the previous campground that we'd been staying at to see if they had availability. The lady on the phone said "we only have one left". Since the campground that was our first choice was already full we went ahead and booked it. She wanted our credit card over the phone. I know better than paying for a site before seen but she said it was the last one! So I gave her the credit card number which she said would be charged that day. (Absolutely no refunds)
This could be a very long story but I will cut to the chase and comment on discrepancies with their website.
Concrete pads - I don't see any. We are parked on grass that sinks when it rains.
Restaurant- There is no restaurant on site much less that delivers. There is a mini mart at the entrance. Don't expect to get your milk and bread there, but if it's beer and soda you are after you are in luck!
Beach/Swimming footsteps from your site - There is no beach on the property. There is no water that you can swim in on property unless you don't mind swimming with alligators! There is a beach that you can see from the property but you need a vehicle to get there. It is part of the National Forest system so you have to pay fees to get in.
Laundry - Yes, there is a laundry "onsite" but it sits facing State Highway 40 and has a big sign with the hours written on it (the hours on the sign are incorrect) so it is open to the public. There is only COLD water wash available.
Boats and jet ski rental (As described on the Passport America site under 'highlights') - None.
Don't bother sending an email inquiry as their website suggests. I never did get a response. I also would caution you to NOT get anything of importance sent to you here via mail. We never did get the FedEx "overnight" envelope that was sent to us. Everybody that we met that was staying here was very nice. - RunAroundSue

Many permanents and snowbirds in CG and they were all friendly. Office staff friendly and helpful. Appeared that restrooms & laundry were mopped several times a day. We found a cheaper laundramat about a mile down the road from CG. Wind blew Spanish Moss and sticks out of trees while we were there. The next morning a couple of workers were out picking them up to haul off.
The asphalt sites are very close to one another, have a patio and picnic table, with some shade from the foliage. - ebaldy

Sorry to say but our and several others flooded due to lack of cleaning out drain pipe. Water was almost up to bay doors in class A motorhome. A very old place and outdated. Was but way before large motorhomes were on the road. If your are in anything over 35 ft stay clear of this place. - User3774

The person who waited on us was pleasant. Most of the park seem to be filled with permanent residents or many "season" residents with a few short term RV spots thrown in. We were told there was WiFi with no charge - we spent forever trying to get on it (office had closed). Finally found out we needed to go to the office/ community room area. There is a small library area in the common area and large community room.
The pool had terrible looking water in it and half filled. Even if you wanted to just sit by the pool sometime during the day it wouldn't have been available.
The site we had was pretty close to our neighbor, but level. Although the CG is right in town it was quieter than we expected. It worked out fine for an overnight stay. - jannie123

Park is geared for retired people. Streets are a little narrow. A lot of full time residents. Train goes by 3 or 4 times a day. Water is not to bad. Pool is nice heater broke while we were here. - deangrimmett

First clue, only RV park in Florida half full at peak season. Very rude when checking in, old and unkempt park. Plumbing and cable problems, unheated dirty bathrooms, loud constant road noise. Much nicer less expensive parks, keep driving ! - Scatter
Feb 2008 - $22.00
Paid a weekly rate for two weeks of 142.50 per week. Streets narrow, With a 35' 5th wheel able to pull in and out but close. Desk person advised coming into site from wrong side and had to go around. That said, very quiet park, neat and clean. cable is available but you have to contract with local company to hook up. Long term only. Close to Ocala and easy in and out. Would stay again. - Baldone

This park is part of the Ocala National Forest through recreation.gov. It's rustic and quiet and each site is quite private with heavy vegetation between sites. The restrooms are clean and showers are hot. Water spigots are conveniently placed between each campsite at the road. Nice dish washing pantry at the bath house. Camp hosts are extremely nice, stopping to chat or answer questions. Bear/raccoon proof trash containers are everywhere. Dirt sites and interior roads however that didn't deter our group on Touring motorcycles. Great riding in the area and stores are up the road. A firewood vendor up the road delivered firewood to our site for a couple bucks. We had a great time with 18 people and 12 bikes all tenting. There was a beach and a lake, very clean and nice. Sites all had lantern hangers, metal lattice picnic tables, fire rings and shade trees. We'd stay again, it's quiet and back to nature. - Full-timers

This is rustic camping at it's finest! This is a first come, first serve national forest park. Two great hosts greeted us at the gate. There are security codes for the gate after hours, and security codes for the nice neat clean bathrooms too. Well-spaced out sites with plenty of palmetto bushes, tall live oaks, dripping Spanish moss and quiet surroundings make this quite a tranquil experience. Each site has a huge picnic table of a plastic coated grid mesh that we have never seen before. Each site also has a built in charcoal grill, fire ring, and tall lantern hook. We are still camped here as I write this. Air card internet via Sprint allows me to access the net from this remote location. We were only going to stay the weekend, but we decided to stay 2 or 3 more days! Our folks are camping in the next site for only $6 a night, with Golden Age passport. There is a dump station and also water spigots placed all over the park, usually within hose distance to most sites to fill your camper up again if needed (don't leave your hose hooked up all the while, that is not fair to the other campers) Some sites are pull through, others are short and better for tents. We are here with 2 big diesel rigs 40-footers. The two friendly hosts are busy all the time, cleaning, picking up stuff, chatting with folks and answering questions. Nice beach with fenced off swimming area for gator protection. Bear-proof trash containers spaced all through the park at convenient places, not just at the entrance. Our friends are coming to join us tomorrow on the next site, and we might just stay a few more days. - kareninthewoods

Very nice owners who live on site. The grass was well kept. The sites are grass, level, with a picnic table and well spaced. The neighbors were friendly and it was a quiet campground. There was a communal fire Saturday night that was well attended by permanent and temporary campers. The only downside is the rough roads. - esta34950

We stayed in Spot 14, The owners are on site. The park is clean. The owners are real friendly people. We really enjoyed our stay. The location is quiet and out of the way, and an hour or two from the amusement parks or the beaches. I highly recommend this campground if Quiet and Serene is what your looking for.
Oh, and the Cable TV worked awesome for our entire stay. The bathrooms and laundry facilities are clean and well kept. The water pressure in the showers is awesome: "like getting a massage every morning." We will stay here again. - Jack Mac Innes

Don't waste your time. Have stayed several times since 2012. Has gone downhill drastically. Owners should sell or shut down. Yes, that bad. She was constantly complaining about being broke, and was bad mouthing full time tenants. He is just plain nasty & miserable. Bad interior roads, very unkept grass, & some pets were loose. There was even a skinny lady walking around asking for us for pot. No wifi, poor cable, wash machines still broke from last time we were there, dryer took 3x to dry...you get the idea. Felt unsafe. Neighborhood is trashy. The good, restrooms clean. We will not return. Traveling in a fifth wheel. - Lunchy

Stayed a week here and would have been happy to stay much longer. Lovely park. It was full. Majority of lots owner occupied by snowbirds. Areas with park models and class A's only. On site is restaurant, candy shop, fitness center, laundry facilities, propane filling, walking trails, dog parks and 3 pools. Only negative was no wifi and few snowy cable channels. - jackiej

This is a beautiful park. The springs is a local swimming hole, very busy on weekends. There are 3 loops in the campground. Most of the sites are shaded and very large with a good amount of space between. The Fern is for tents only, with dirt road and no set tent pads. The Sandpine has more vegetation separating the sites. I prefer the Tropical Loop which is an easy walk to the springs and nature trail. Your neighbor may be visable but is a good distance away. There are several pull-through sites. A few sites are in full sun during the day, but most are under large trees. You can hear traffic on Hwy 40 at night but it isn't that loud to wake you up. Bathrooms were kept very clean even on the weekend. Showers have a push button which automatically turns off after a couple of minutes. I would give it a 9 or 10 if they had electrical hook ups. The Juniper Canoe Run is 7 miles, narrow and shallow in most places. Toward the end it is more open and sunny. They say it is not for beginners as there are lots of fallen trees in the water, curves, a constant current and one small area of rapids. They check coolers for disposal bottles and alcohol. They will send you back if you have these. They have a shuttle service to take you back at the end of the canoe run but you must register and pay at the store in advance. We also stayed at Alexander Springs but I prefer Juniper Springs. - On the Road again 11

We love to come here because it is close to home. The spring itself is so refreshing and beautiful. The sites are always clean and the operators are very friendly. - jenny_roberts75

For looks and quiet this place is a 10. But we were very disappointed that the concessionaire at the gate does not recognize the "access pass" we have. This is the first USFS facility that did not honor this. Good cell service, had to set the direct TV out and about to shoot thru the trees and the motosat no way. But again very peaceful and serene. - idahojoat

Bike riding available on paved campground roads. Walking trails of different distances. Large, long spacious shaded sites. Good lengthy space between neighbors. A short ride to the main entrance where you can launch your kayak or rent one. Also boat tours including the glass bottom boats which appeared to be filled to capacity each time they departed. The water is crystal clear. The walking path along the water is paved with seating available from time to time. They have a restaurant and ice cream shop. Enjoyed a quiet relaxing afternoon there. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

My site (#43) happened to have sewer but most sites are W/E. Price is the same, regardless. Over half of the sites are pull throughs and are extraordinarily spacious. Campground road is paved, sites are gravel. Most seem to be quite level. Shade varies site to site but most get some shade at some point of the day. OTA TV signal and Verizon reception both good. Laundry facilities in the comfort stations (at only $1.00 per machine). There are loads of trails, including one that goes all the way to the actual Silver Springs Park tourist attraction (2+ miles one way). Or you can easily drive there and, with your camping pass in hand, get free admission. My favorite thing about this campground was its dog friendliness. I have found many Florida parks to limit access to dogs, especially in areas where they have protected wildlife. At Silver Springs, not only is your dog allowed on all the campground trails, but he/she is allowed in at the main tourist site... plus they give you a dog cookie! - aowcarol

Great state park.......clean quiet level sites. Lots of shade ........very clean bathrooms and showers. Close to all kinds of shopping and restaurants. With that being said.... choose your site CAREFULLY....stay away from " shared " or buddy sites if your not traveling with camping buddy. We picked a shared site due to availability and had a horrible stay. Our shared campsite neighbors had guests spend a few days with them in a truck towing a WORK trailer. They had a total of 4 vehicles on one site plus 7 kayaks and stuff all over their site. They blocked the shared driveway so when we looked out our coach windshield all we seen was truck & work trailer. Felt as if we where camping in Walmart parking lot. We complained to the park ranger......but that was like talking to a hole in the ground. Surprisingly the camp host in the same loop did nothing to reinforce the 2 vehicle per site rule. We will not revisit this park. - Don-Deb
