Silver River State Park opened to the public in 1987 with only an Education Center and one Ranger on site. The park is now home to campgrounds, cabins, picnic pavilions, children's play ground and canoe/kayak launch and rentals. The Park is also home to a pioneer cracker village and the Silver River Museum & Education Center operated by the Marion County School District.
Visitors can canoe down the crystal clear river, hike or bike along one of the nature trails, or just relax and watch for some of Florida's distinct wildlife. Frequent wildlife sightings include armadillos, deer, turkey, fox and gopher tortoises; an occasional glimpse of coyote, bobcats and Florida Black Bear is also possible. Bird watchers will find several varieties of water and woodland birds.
