You ever visit a place and right away feel at ease and peaceful; when you immediately know that you have picked the right place to spend a few days. When this happens, I like to say it has Chi!
This is what Howard and I both felt when we arrived at Silver River State Park, located in Ocala, Florida. What a beauty of a state park it is!
It was our first visit to Silver River and we absolutely love this park. No wonder it is difficult to book; now we know we will have to book a site eleven months in advance!
Almost all the sites are huge, pull-thru, level and private! Once parked you are surrounded by tall Live Oak, Pine trees and Palmettos!
There are fifteen miles of hiking trails to enjoy.

WOW! You hit the jackpot Sheila! Your home looks quite settled in and comfy! And so do Skye and Kloud! Can’t wait for photos of your walks!
Hi Gay, we had a wonderful time at this state park, but could only stay for three nights. It is a very busy state park that books up quickly.
How wonderful, Sheila…beautiful photos!! What is that in the last photo….almost looks like an alligator! Enjoy your camping trip
Hi Barb, thank you so much! Yes, it is a little gator! He was watching us watch him!
It looks lovely Sheila. I would love to visit Ocala someday. Isn’t this horse country?
We really did not have much time to tour around Ocala, but I do believe it is horse country. On our way to I75 we took the backroads (which we like to do) and passed several horse farms. If you want to see horse country, try the back roads around McKinney, TX. We passed so many horse farms with barns bigger than most “big” houses.
Such peaceful pics, Sheila. What a great find. Looks like the perfect place to chill out. 🙂
Sylvia, it is a great location to chill out!!
Great deer picture – shows how fast they really are.
We were walking back to camp, from the river, and it was getting dark. These white-tailed deer were walking along the trail. I did not have enough light to get a good picture; but I liked the “motion” in this photo. Fun trying anyway. And, yes these guys are fast!
Were you by chance using an iPhone or smart phone?
No, I had my Cannon with me.
Kloudoty looks happy
She does and she is a happy girl as long as she gets her walks!!
