“Beautiful Campground but with I-75 Noise”

Reviewed Jan 09, 2019

Overall Rating

This campground has plenty of charm among Live Oaks with a partial view of Silver Lake. The campground and sites are spacious. The Withlacoochee State Trail (paved 46 mile rail trail) is within walking distance of the campground. This was a convenient stop off of I-75 with lots to explore in the surrounding area, but the road noise ... more

“Beautiful Campground”

Reviewed Jan 02, 2019

Overall Rating

Great campground with nice hiking trails. This campground is right next to i-75 so be careful which site you pick. My personal preference, I would pick site 6 next time. All the sites looked shaded and well kept but 6 seem to have the most room on either side without neighbors.

“Great place to camp”

Reviewed Oct 26, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a great campground to stay at. This is Silver lake. We have stayed in Cypress Glen as well. This one is closer to I75 so I take a star off for road noise. Pet friendly. Someone posted that you are locked in overnight. You are not. The gate code is on your email receipt. Good cell reception.

“Nice trails and lake (cypress glen)”

Reviewed Apr 25, 2018

Overall Rating

Some nice hiking trails and a nice lake. Spots were spaced fairly well. I don't recommend 32 unless you have a sub-25 ft rig. It's not even close to level front-back (Jacked the front of my trailer to the limit with as many blocks as I could fit and it still wasn't quite level), but would be more manageable with something shorter than ... more

“Would not stay in Silver Lake section again”

Reviewed Mar 31, 2018

Overall Rating

Road in is paved but rough. I think they should have left it dirt & scraped it level now & then. There was no one at check-in station when we arrived or any other time we went through. Since we had reservation just proceeded to sight & set up. There is a gate that is locked from 8pm to 8 am. Truly locked. It does not swing open to exit... more

“Nice campground and lake except for road noise”

Reviewed Mar 07, 2018

Overall Rating

This was our first state park that we have stayed at for quite a long time, the spacing of sites is adequate for privacy. The loop closest to the interstate was very noisy, luckily the site we had didn't have as much noise. The restrooms where older but clean. The lake provided a great opportunity to try out our kayaks for the first ti... more

“Beautiful camp but hard to escape the highway. ”

Reviewed Feb 04, 2018

Overall Rating

We had a great stay at Silver Lake Canpground. The sites are well kept, come with picnic table, fire ring, hookups. Not super secluded from other campers, but enough space. Our site was on silver lake (quite a few sites are lakefront), so it was quick and easy to kayak. There’s also a paved boat ramp. Silver lake connects to the Withla... more

“Hidden Florida gem”

Reviewed Dec 20, 2017

Overall Rating

The Withlacoochee River passes through here and opens up to create a nice lake for fishing or kayaking and boating. It's right off of I-75 so there is some road noise but the scenery makes up for it. The Withlacoochee Bike Trail is at the entrance and is an excellent paved bike trail. The Silver Lake Campground offers shady campsite... more
