Call Salt Springs around 10AM to see if they have any walkup sites. If so, get there quick because they won't hold them. I don't think you would have any problem during the week at Juniper Springs due to no hookups. Good Luck as this time of year it's TOUGH grabbing sites here in FL.

We'll be at Salt Springs next week, but thankfully we have a reservation we made months ago.

Juniper Springs, Alexander Springs and Clearwater Lake are in the Ocala National Forest. No hookups. Water available. Salt Springs is Fed too. Full hookups.

There are many small private campgrounds around Ocala with FHUs and have availability.

Silver River St.Pk. on the East side of Ocala and west edge of there is wonderful. I think All sites are pull thru and big nough 4 the largest rigs. They have the nicest bathouses I've seen, complete with private showers and Infra-Red heat lamps for drying as well as it is a disinfectant. The, nearby, Silver Springs is now a part of the State park and the famous Glass Bottom boat rides are great.

jolooote, agree that Silver River is a great park with one exception that not all the sites are pull through, the majority are. The second loop has some back in sites on the back side. The sites are huge and level. My DH is an Ocala native and has been around here for 74 years and has really seen changes with Silver River. We use to take our boat and ride up the river to the springs, look at the monkeys, the fish and wave at the tourist. LOL! We live about 15 minutes from there now. They now have some sites that have FHU but not all. It is another park that is hard to get into, I guess because Walmart is so close...lol! Glad you enjoy our neck of the woods.

X2 on Silver River. We love this park - and yes, very hard to get into.

If you're trying to look up info on Silver River State Park, it was renamed Silver Springs State Park in 2013.

Orig. Poster didn't say from what direction they would come into the Ocala area. We always come up I-75 from the south. We don't like having to drive thru the center of Ocala on Rt 40. Is there an easier way to get to Silver River(Springs) St. Pk.?
