We stayed at the campground here in our motor home. The sites were spacious, shady and very clean. It was cold for February in the 60's yet people were swimming in the 72 degree clear spring water. It's a beautiful park and the swimming area is outstanding. Lots of land to hike, bike and explore.

This is a good campground close to all the towns north of Orlando. Sites are full hook-up, are private and level with bathroom showers nearby. Grocery is 2-miles away. No laundry here, so must go 4-miles to Apopka to wash clothes. The area has lots of walks and trails and the swimming in the springs is year-round at 70-degree water.

Overall it is a decent place to spend an afternoon. Sometimes the spring can smell like eggs but I hear it's normal.

This park really embodies all that is natural beautiful about the state of Florida, from crystal clear, spring fed waters, lush plants, abundant animal life, this place has it all. Hiking, swimming, canoeing, and bird watching are just some of things to do at this natural marvel.

Been here plenty of times for years while in FLA. The springs are nice and park was good for the family to enjoy. Get a tube and follow the water trail or BBQ.

If you make it to the Orlando area, you have got to spend at least a half day at Wekiwa Springs State Park! It has a natural spring swimming pool that looks like it came from garden of Eden. It has trails for hiking and/or biking, ample picnic space, and refreshments. Further, it's employees like Thom O that really make... More

This is one of the parks that involve this spring, others would be wekiva, rock springs. This is a beautiful place. I would not recommend this place until you become familiar with first aid of the local Florida wildlife. Typically 8 out of 10 times I always run into something that needs immediate reaction, snakes, alligators, ticks, spiders, racoons, etc.... More

We go here often as a family and theres something for everyone. If you love the outdoors...this is the park for you! We have gone on hikes, had picnics, went swimming/snorkeling and went canoeing. The do charge a fee per car to enter.

We visited here last year. We rented canoes and spent a lot of time on the water. We saw a lot of wildlife including alligators and turtles. It was very neat. At one point, an alligator was swimming alongside our canoe. It was an experience I'll never forget. I recommend to any other nature lovers out there.

Wekiwa Springs State Park is a gem close to central Orlando well known to the locals but not so much to visitors. The springs are remarkable--bring your swim suits! The hiking trails are peaceful and relaxing. However, the trails are poorly marked. Also it would have been nice to have identifiers next to some of the unique trees and plants.... More
