Welcome to Silver Springs State Park
Explore one of America’s largest and best loved springs from the park’s famous glass bottom boats and see an underwater world.
The first- magnitude spring is surrounded by serene gardens and historic structures, reminiscent of the days when Silver Springs was a major destination for northerners arriving by steamship.The park is still a favorite destination and the home of the annual Springsfest that celebrates protection and restoration of all Florida springs and waterways.
The Silver River, which winds through the park, allows paddlers to experience a primeval forest wilderness. It is surrounded by some of the state’s best managed sandhills, accessible by trails and dotted with friendly campgrounds.
