Silver Glen Springs
Located in the Ocala National Forrest and operated by the US Forrest Service, Silver Glen Springs is unique. The spring basin is littered with 3-7 lb 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. An extensive cave system has been mapped in Silver Glen Springs. A documentary is in the works by Wes Skiles including this cave system due out in late 2005. Admission was $3.00 in May 2001.
From the intersection of S-19 and S-40 take S-19 for 6.5 miles north. Turn right when you see the sign.
