Overview

Step into history at one of Florida’s most historic and natural state parks delighting guests since the 1870s. Visit the pioneer settlement including cabins, outbuildings, outhouse, blacksmith forge, gardens and more. Explore one of America’s largest natural spring from the park’s historic glass bottom boats. The springs are naturally crystal clear and you can see many species of fish, ancient Native American and Spanish artifacts and even underwater movie props from the days when Hollywood movie productions filmed at the park. There are over 4,000 acres to explore, hike, camp, paddle the river, visit the Silver River Museum or take the glass bottom boat tour. Stop by Paradise Treats ice cream shop or Springside Restaurant for a bite to eat.
