Ok Park - no dogs allowed
Mar 2021
Park is nice - there is a $5 fee. There was no parking so we planned to leave but wanted to let the dog stretch. We took her to an area where there were zero people and threw the stick for her a few times. A gentleman came out and told me no dogs were allowed....which was fine....but funny because there was also several signs outside of the location he came from that said "beware of dog" LOL.

Kayak Launch
Jun 2020 • Friends
This is a very nice park costs $5, bathrooms are decent. The Silver River is beautiful, people fishing. However, if you want to see Silver Springs, I recommend launching from the State Park. The trip from wayside was tough and we kayak often. The current was very strong and took us quite a while to get all the way there.

Good for access to Ocklawaha and Silver river
Mar 2020
Nice for boat launching, and good for hand launch of kayaks, but not really a pretty park. Right on busy highway 40, and the water is nasty looking until you get out to the river. The water you see when you launch is simply a canal coming from the river, not the river itself. Many picnic tables available, but nothing special as far as any view .

Kayak launch for Silver Springs
Aug 2019
Very nice park for launching paddle craft with a dedicated ramp that was easy to get in and out of our kayaks. Tables and benches to lay items while we fussed with boats.

Canoe/Hand Launch
Mar 2019 • Couples
We launched/retrieved our canoe on two separate occasions. Very nice facilities, the powerboat and hand launch areas are separated with adequate staging and parking areas. The $5.00 launch/parking fee is "fair enough" to have access to such a nice facility.

Great access to the Silver or Ocklawaha rivers.
Sep 2018 • Friends
Theories itself is well maintained and safe, but nothing special. However, it offers quick and easy access to the Silver and Ocklawaha rivers. There are two ramps for boats on trailers and a separate kayak launch area.

Nice kayak launch area
May 2018 • Couples
Great kayak launch site. Kayak drop in right at parking lot. Bathrooms available. A 5 mile upstream paddle to silver springs. Fair amount of current. Beautiful along river. No houses. Saw monkeys at about half way to springs. Honor system to pay to launch.

Nice place to launch boat

Ramps are great and give access to the Silver Springs River. Nice place for a picnic. Plenty of parking for boat trailers.

Nice place to launch your boat. There was also a playground and restrooms. It was pet friendly. There was a small fee to enter.

I sometimes fish there and watch the kayaks launch, it's a very nice, well kept small park with plenty of parking.
