Silver Springs State Park
Discover the charm of a historic Florida attraction and the crystal clear beauty of one of the last uninhabited spring runs in the state at Silver Springs State Park. As the largest, first magnitude artesian springs ever discovered, visitors have long been captivated by the springs' natural beauty and vibrant clarity.
There are many activities to choose from at Silver Springs from Glass Bottom Boat tours, wildlife viewing and kayak and canoe trips to camping, nature trails and the Silver River Museum. Silver Springs State Park offers 5,000 acres of outdoor fun. Explore on 14 miles of mixed-use trails, go kayaking or canoeing, and enjoy park facilities including a playground, campgrounds, picnic areas, grills, and more.
Don't miss the glass-bottom boat tours through the crystal clear waters of the artesian springs. The glass-bottom boats allow you to see the beautiful underwater ecosystem up close and spot alligators, manatees, fish, turtles, and more!
