  silver glen springs
by doug48

located on US19 about 15 miles from astor florida is silver glen springs. silver glen once was privately owned and the silver glen run was one of the biggest party spots in central florida. hundreds of boats would line up on the half mile spring run and people would party all weekend. several years ago the national park service bought the property and prohibited alcohol and public nudity in the run. granted those were fun days but now silver glen is a safer and more family friendly place to visit. the spring has a nice swimming area and is a nice place to visit in the ocala national forest.

Address: US19
Directions: about 10 miles north west of astor florida. from astor take SR40 west to US19 and go about five miles north to the spring.
