The Silver River picnic area features three large pavilions with BBQ grills that may be rented for group outings. A beautiful venue for family reunions, birthday parties, or even weddings, the picnic area provides shelter on sunny days, plenty of seating, and a playground for the youngsters.
For overnight stays, the park has a full facility campground and 10 luxury cabins. There is also a primitive campground for use by organized groups (scouts, church groups, etc.), however, with our hotel just down the road from the Silver River State Park, there is no need to rough it if you don’t need to.
The Silver River State Park is home to a pioneer cracker village and the Silver River Museum and Environmental Education Center. The center is operated by the Marion County School District in cooperation with the park and is open to the public on weekends and holidays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00. p.m. Admission to the Museum is $2.00 per person. Children under 6 are free. For more information please visit Silver River Museum website byclicking here.
The main entrance to Silver River State Park is located east of Ocala, one mile south of our Holiday Inn Express and Suites of Silver Springs, on State Road 35.
