Salt Springs Recreation Area is one of the recreational jewels of the Ocala National Forest. The recreation area is located in the lush, semi-tropical setting of central Florida. Within the recreation area is a natural spring rising from vertical fissures (cracks) from deep within the earth. The presence of potassium, magnesium and sodium salts give the waters in the spring a slight salinity. Hence the name Salt Springs.
Operational Hours: Open 8 AM to 8 PM (hours vary by season)
Rentals & Guides: Canoe rentals are available at the Salt Springs Marina. An unimproved boat ramp is at the back of the campground.
