VP87 is a 1/10 acre pull through site with ~70 feet of concrete and room to park two vehicles. Water, sewer, and 30/50amp power on site. An 8X12 shed complete with full size modern WASHER and DRYER, residential size refrigerator, a utility sink and even a real porcelain toilet! The shed only has cold water... Just down the street from Ocala and Silver Springs State Park, in the Village Park portion of Wilderness RV Resort. Wilderness is a lovely community of RV lot owners and tenants with palm trees, manicured lots, and many amenities: a bath house, a gym and sauna/steam room, swimming pool and hot tub, big dog park, and a hiking trail... all nestled right on the shore of the beautiful and famous Ocklawaha River. Quick and easy shopping for typical requirements just down the road in Ocala or Silver Springs. Silver Springs State Park is less than 5 miles and offers glass bottom boat tours of the famous springs. If you have your own kayak/canoe you can paddle from there to Ray Wayside Park and return to your car at the state park with the shuttle service. Or you can pass Ray Wayside and paddle another .5 mile directly to Wilderness RV Resort (you'll just need a way back to retrieve your car) ... approximately 6 miles of beautiful clear water and Florida jungle with manatee, gators, birds, otters, and even monkeys! The entire trip is with the current! About 33 miles away is Rainbow Springs State Park... another famous and beautiful spring that offers walking trails, waterfalls, beautiful gardens, swimming and snorkeling, and paddling too. Last but not least, surrounding VP87 there are many other smaller springs each with their own unique attractions. Like bicycling? The Cross Florida Greenway (Santos Trail System) is about 15 miles and offers 32 miles of paved path for road cyclist and easily over 50 miles of world class mountain bike trails for anyone from beginner to expert skill level. For the aspiring mountain bike experts and actual experts out there... the world-famous Vortex Trail is in this system. Bring your "A" game and lots of water. I recommend a fast cross-country bike for these trails. A down country or light trail bike is fine too. The Florida Horse Park is in the Greenway as well and is great for polo matches and horse shows. The World Equestrian Center is in Ocala, 15 miles - also great for horse shows and has a couple nice restaurants. The Appleton Museum of Art is 6.5 miles away. A nice place to go and beat the heat and enjoy a bit of culture. The Grandview Clydesdales are about 30 miles away and they offer 1.5 to 2-hour educational tours of their famous Clydesdales Horses. I personally have not done this yet, but it looks awesome. Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing is 32 miles. Looks fun and they appear to be dog on leash friendly. We love the puppies! Ocala is sweet!A 70-foot cement pull through campsite with parking for 2 vehicles. 8X12 shed included with WASHER and DRYER, full size refrigerator, TOILET and sink (there is no hot water in shed). Water, sewage, and 30/50-amp power on site.

The campground is very well kept, in a beautiful setting, has wonderful amenities, and the other campers (many residents) were so friendly. Steve is a great host. His communication on all the logistics was perfect! Easy-peasy in and out. We had a nice two night stay. Highly recommend for a quick stay on your travels, if you’re hanging out for a week or more the laundry, toilet, and refrigerator in the shed would be super helpful. We just didn’t need it on this stay. Wifi cost extra. Plan your budget or bring your own.

This is a fabulous spot. So close to everything. Very nice well maintained RV park. All the neighbors were very friendly. The hot tub is HOT! This was our first visit to Sulver Spring and it is now on our must return short list. Steven is a great host. Very responsive and clearly loves this spot too. Thanks again Steven!

Magical, convenient place to stay!
This is such a magical place to stay! The park has very nice amenities and is close to mountain biking or road bicycling in the Santos trail system just 12 miles away. Best yet you can catch an Uber or drive up to nearby Silver Springs State Park and paddle board all the way back to the RV park like we did, twice! It was the most amazing adventure! Hitting the hot tub after was wonderful too! The site itself is nice and level, and the neighbors are very nice.

What a fantastic place in silver springs to trailer camp! Your personal shed has its own washer/dryer and toilet/sink - that was a huge bonus. Everyone at wilderness park was so friendly and it was so clean! we highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to tour silver springs
