Located in the Ocala National Forest and operated by the US Forest Service, Silver Glen Springs is unique. The spring basin is littered with large Striped Bass that swim around you in groups of hundreds. It's quite a site. There are two vents that are located at a 25 foot depth. There is a strong outflow, but you can pull yourself into the small cavern and explore as long as you can hold your breath. There is no scuba allowed. A second spring with a large cave is about 100 yards south of the head spring. An extensive cave system has been mapped here.
