Salt Springs

Springs Recreation Area is one of the recreational jewels of the Ocala National Forest. With a spectacular, natural mineral spring that gives the area its name, there are plenty of outdoor activities.  Overnight campers and day-use visitors will stay busy, including paddleboarding and swimming in the springs.  In the early 1900s, many visitors came to the Springs, believing them to have medicinal healing powers. Salt Springs gush forth 52 million gallons of water daily at a constant 74° Fahrenheit.

The campground is the largest in the Ocala National Forest and the only one with full hookups for RVs. The facility offers spacious campsites for wheeled homes, as well as a designated tent-only area, which is a short walk from the parking area. Sites are nicely shaded and well away from the busy day-use area. 

There are 34.56 miles from Eustis to Salt Springs in the north direction and 39 miles (62.76 kilometers) by car, following the FL 19 route. Eustis and Salt Springs are 45 minutes far apart if you drive non-stop.
