We were very impressed with this park, everything was clean and kept that way. Not much shade on some of the sites, but some had shade. You must have a vehicle to go to the headsprings, which were beautiful and enjoyable. Beautiful waterfalls in the headsprings area. We would go back again and again.
We paid a senior rate; most Florida State Parks offer this. What a beautiful state park, very well kept, very clean, and kept that way at all times. Staff were very helpful and supportive in all ways. We rented a canoe and traveled the Silver River, saw a lot of wildlife, also alligators. Have nice hike and biking trails, Museum (which is only open on week ends) and an old Florida area with a church, homes, school, etc. Close to shopping and just around the corner from Silver Springs and Wild Waters water park. We will go back again for sure. Saw quite a few deers and other wildlife in the park.
