The recreation area of Salt Springs is one of the recreational gems of the Ocala National Forest. The recreation area is located in the lush, semi-tropical environment of Central Florida. Within the recreation area is a natural spring rising from vertical cracks from the depths of the earth. The presence of potassium, magnesium and sodium salts gives the waters a low salinity in the spring. Hence the name Salt Springs.
The camping ground inside the park is very spacious.
