Really clear, pretty and COLD water. We visited around 11am and the park was almost packed. We hiked the trails and had a good time. Decent trails to hike on. We saw four deer , a huge box turtle and like 50 really really big spiders. If spiders aren't your thing don't go on the trails. It was a nice... More

Always enjoy a trip to this spring! The water is nice and cool on these Florida summer days. Always crowded, most times you can't get in, they limit the number of visitors who can enter, otherwise it would be a circus. Thanks rangers for capping the number so its not over crowded.

Wekiwa Springs State Park is beautiful and highly recommended! However, it is important to know that the park no longer offers camping amenities. Of course I found this out after arriving there with no tent or cooking supplies. A quick trip to Wal-Mart can buy you the basics. An air mattress is highly recommended! The camping sites are compacted bedrock... More

As a photographer I look for great places to spend time. This was amazing - third car into the park at 8 am. alone, bugs, peacefulness, deer, spiders, and just beautiful sights. as the park filled within the hours, colorful flotation devices, kids, parents, and lots of fun and laughs. constant 72 degrees and 42,000 gallons of running stream, springs...

Wekiwa Springs is a beautiful part of nature hidden just half an hour's drive from I Drive. Among other things there are numerous hikes to choose from; being quite experienced and having hiked the Grand Canyon and a three-peaks day in the Santa Monica Mountains, my wife & I were pretty confident that we could handle the 10 mile nature...

This is a very unique and beautiful park. The water is as clear as it is on a Caribbean island. The water is also VERY COLD! The park is nice to visit but you better bring your own chairs to the springs to swim. There is only one table and a few benches. No where else close to sit. We... More

Went canoeing with my son. Loved the scenery including the turtles and alligators. A fun thing to do with a family.

This park has a large swmming area at the head spring. There are several ladders into the water and chest high deep. A little further from the main spring the water gets shallower. There are no lifeguards there and would not recommend it for small children until very supervised with a life jacket on. There are very large trees and... More

Perfect for one day getaway, just 16 miles from Downtown Orlando, this place offers fun, adventure , peace and relief all in one sweet package that literally saves the dormant souls from daily routine. They have a huge pool which is the beginning(or end?) of the wekiwa river that pumps 42 million gallons of fresh water everyday, it's literally the... More

Always fun and always 74 degree water temp. Gators, snakes and all other manner of Florida critters. The water is always crystal clear with great swimming. It is the epitome of the Real Florida.
