RV Parks in Marion County, Florida

RV Parks in Marion County, Florida
Marion County, Florida, is one of the few landlocked counties in a state known for its coastline. But what the county lacks in saltwater beaches, it more than compensates for with the natural beauty of springs, rivers and forests. Stretching eastward from the outskirts of Ocala, the largest city in Marion County, the Ocala National Forest provides ample opportunity to explore a Florida that seems ripped from the pages of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings' "The Yearling." Other natural attractions include Silver Springs and Rainbow Springs.

Ocala National Forest: Salt Springs

More than 380,000 acres are available for exploration in the Ocala National Forest. Centrally located in the forest, full hookup RV sites are available for families looking to camp comfortably near the year-round 72-degree water flowing from Salt Springs. The vast forest offers outdoor recreational opportunities such as fishing, boating, hiking, equestrian trails, cycling and even trails for off highway vehicles.
