Located in the Ocala National Forest and operated by the US Forest Service, Silver Glen Springs is unique. The spring basin is littered with large Striped Bass that swim around you in groups of hundreds. No diving or SCUBA diving permitted. Boats must stay out of swimming area.
Rent a kayak or canoe or launch your own for a trip down cypress-lined Silver Glen Run. Stick close to shore to watch for eagles above and manatees below.
Enjoy a walk in the woods with a cool breeze off Lake George on the Lake George Trail (3 mile round-trip), or a visit to Jody's Spring beneath a canopy of palms along the Spring Boils Trail (3/4 mile round-trip).
Operational Hours: Open 8 AM to 8 PM (hours vary by season)
