First, consider this is a State Park and that it is a cabin. With that expectation in place, the Silver River Cabins clearly exceeded my expectations. Second, he initial approach to the cabin is - "Wow, this place is huge" because of the large screen enclosed wrap-around porch. The cabins are of cracker style appearance, but the interior living is light pine wood paneling giving it more of the "lodge" look. They have large 2 bedrooms, a full kitchen and a large open living space. Actually, my sister rented one next to us, and they had a considerably larger master suite that took up little bit of the porch space, but our master bedroom had double-french doors that opened out onto the enclosed porch. We utilized the porch extensively, especially the large picnic table, as well as the fire pit outside where we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows; there is a cooking grille too. There were a couple of sub-par experiences: 1) even though the bathroom is very large, the type/texture of the floor tile does not lend itself to a feeling "spotlessly clean" in the shower and shower area, I recommend flip-flops during usage. and 2) even though they do have one fully fitted disable accessible cabin, they could still put about 3 runs of railing in the shower/bath area just for good safety for those with marginal steadiness. Our stay included a visit to the museum, which is Excellent - someone is doing quality work there! A trail walk down to the Silver River. And a 1/2 day canoeing trip from the Ocklawaha River into the beautiful Silver River. I have camped here before, mountain bikes and canoe/kayaks are recommended if you do that sort of thing. I would highly recommend the cabins, especially for all age levels and those not interested in the camping experience.
