Paddlers, divers, and swimmers will be glad to know that Morrison Springs will re-open on Feb. 26 with a multitude of renovations and improvements. I have posted the entire news release as an article. Take a look.

Here in Central Florida, the Ocala National Forest to be precise, we've been waiting months for the Salt Spring Recreation Area to reopen. I found out Saturday that the Juniper Springs Recreation Area is also closed. Juniper Creek and Silver Glen

One would think they could coordinate these projects so two Springs aren't closed at the same time.

Good to know about Morrison and the springs in the Ocala area. How long is Salt and Juniper scheduled to be closed?

Dave - excellent underwater shots at Silver Glen. Really enjoyed them.

How long ? Who knows. Salt Springs has been closed for months.

Above is a link, below the gist for Salt Springs:

Alerts and Important Information
The Springs swimming and day use areas ARE CLOSED for renovation/construction. The projected end date is undetermined at this point.
The camping areas are and will remain open.

Salt has been closed since the spring of '08, Juniper just shut down on Feb 17. Here is what the same website has to say about the timetable:

Effective February 17, 2009 until July 17, 2009 the swimming area ONLY is closed for construction

Salt Springs recreation area is now open. Btw, the link to Salt Springs in the previous reply no longer works, so I included the correct link here. Thx.
