In the 90's I visited this park many times, camping on motorcycle trips. It is a real little gem, peaceful, relaxing, quiet, but much to see and do in the park and in the area. Orlando and Disney have had a lot to do with area growth, obviously. Hiking trails, kayaking and canoe trips in the river and swimming and... More

The springs are beautiful, but the park has much more to offer. We hiked from the springs to Sand Lake, over to another lake, and back around to the springs, and passed through an amazing variety of biomes. We were very surprised to find hills! On another day we rented a canoed and paddled upriver towards Rock Springs (until the... More

This spring looked like a huge pool that led out to a lake. There were no shallow parts except for large rocks that you could stand on. After a dip in the "pool" we went kayaking through the lake where we saw a baby alligator. Very nice park.

We rented a canoe for two and enjoyed two hours on the river that flows in this local state park. The scenery was peaceful. We saw a variety of wildlife. There is plenty of space for picnics, swimming, and water play! Will come back here if we're ever in the area!

This park offers a nice campground, beautiful springs and a friendly staff. Located in Apopka, it's close enough to restaurants and things to do outside the park as well. We went on a damp, chilly day and still enjoyed it, but in the summer it's really good. With hiking, biking, swimming, and canoeing , we'd stay there again!

I have been going to Wekiwa for years to enjoy the spring. Went camping for one week over Thanksgiving and enjoyed the stay! From the spring to the trails, there is something to do for everyone. The restrooms were very clean and well maintained. Site #14 was very spacious with our tent and canopy on it...we loved it! Some of... More

a chance to stay close to the nature- cycling, camping, birding, campfire circles. Wekiwa is a full service state park with something for everyone, hike along a portion of more than 13 miles of trails and then cool off in the refreshing 72 degree spring. The Wekiva River is one of two recognized National Wild & Scenic Rivers in Florida.

Great park with a beautiful spring and well maintained and marked hiking trails. The trails take you through multiple types of environments . I would highly recomend spending some time here.

The spring is gorgeous and warm keeping it's temperature at 72 degrees. Lots to do here, great for all ages. The campsites themselves aren't very secluded from each other but it works.

Wanted to check out something different with my teen boys and a local mentioned this. Short drive from Orlando, but well worth it. It's a state park with a cool water spring that creates a river through a jungle forest. We rented a canoe for an hour, paddling the gin-clear Wekiva stream. We saw over a dozen alligators in their... More
