So beautiful and great for fishing. Also has a small food stand that is open on weekends. I come her often as it has many trails and is a great place to take a nice walk. Just love it!

Oh my. I almost hate to share this wonderful space with the world in fear that it will get crowded. Right now, it is not. However, it could handle many more people! It is clean, has wonderful trails, offers picnic areas and plenty of walking paths. You can fish or boat or just sit on the benches and enjoy the... More

We visit Silver Springs State Park every chance we get, in every season - it is incredibly awesome, clean and idyllic. There are several parking lots from which to choose your starting point for some fantastic hikes and exploration of this well-kept natural beauty. Camping is no longer permitted at Silver Springs Park, so in summer we always make advance... More

This place is confusing! Apparently, there are two entrances - the west entrance and the east entrance. I parked near the boat launch at the west entrance and from there, it's a little difficult to find the hiking trails. Once I got there, it was fine, but they still weren't marked very well. As I looped around, I came to... More

It is a nice state park but it needs to be cleaned up big time. Especially along the paths. Last time I was there trash was all over and the marshes and ponds other than the main fishing pond are full of garbage too.

We went to Silver Springs State Park for the afternoon. It is in the process of being rehabbed but is still a great place. The glass bottom boat ride is neat. There are beautiful trails. We rented kayaks for an hour long float. Saw alligators, turtles, and monkeys. Our 13 year old granddaughter had a blast! Well worth it!

This park is a great place to visit nature. The fishing is good if you know how to fish. The park gets alot of pressure, so the fish are very picky. As with most state run parks, under staffing and general disconcert for our natural resources as compared to other states, shines through. Don't get me wrong, this is a... More

The scene here is absolutely beautiful!! So many trees, the crick is beautiful. I had never seen a spring before, and that was neat and the water tasted great! It's a great experience.

Great hiking trails. We love it and the dogs love it. The path is not overly groomed, it's hilly in parts, and the scenery changes throughout the trail. Not too crowded.
