Kayaking Silver Springs is like traveling back in time. There is so much history to be seen and learned here. Silver Springs became very popular after the civil war. The Silver Springs attraction began in the late 1870’s and was the first tourist attraction in Florida. The Florida state park system took over the attraction in 2013. In 1971 the river was designated a natural national landmark. The park is over 5000 acers with an improved and widen kayaking launch , several hiking trails and bicycling areas as well as equestrian trails and a museum. Camping is by reservation only.
The beauty of the Silver River is unlike any other in Florida, and what better way to experience it, than with a kayaking tour. Wildlife is at almost every turn, and old props from attractions dating back to the 1930,s are still standing along the beautiful Kings Trail which harbors a replica of Fort King, named after Colonel William King, commander Florida’s fourth infantry and the first governor of the provisional West Florida region. The original Fort King located just a few miles down the road, was eventually turned into the court house for Ocala. A town was born!
