Salt Springs



Salt Springs Recreation Area is located between the St. Johns and Ocklawaha Rivers, 35 miles east of Ocala, in the Ocala National Forest. The recreation area included a spectacular natural mineral spring, which gives the area its name. The semi-tropical region gives the campground a mixture of pines and palms, which lush greenery and warm temperatures.

There is plenty of activity to keep campers occupied, in addition to swimming the springs, campers come to fish, snorkel, hike and boat. Hikers have easy access to the Florida National Scenic Trail.
