great place to bring family to swim and have a picnic. No alcohol allowed, which makes this an ideal place for family fun. You can bring dogs, but they have to stay in a limited area and on a leash.

A great place for hiking and wonderful springs to swim in. I love taking my dogs for a walk there to get away from the world and clear my head. You will see multiple ecosystems on any given hike; lots of deer and other wildlife to enjoy too!

The best bargain in town as admission is $6 for a car and up to 8 passengers. The springs are great to swim in or sunbathe and picnic nearby, the beautiful Wekiva River offers kayaking and canoeing and there are miles of trails for hiking, off road biking and running. Also an amazing place to see and photograph wildlife.

The camping areas have been updated and the facility is clean. They have nature walks to explore and the water is ice cold on a hot summers day.

Less than an hour's drive from the Disney area is a state park where you can swim in the spring, do some hiking and just commune with nature. There is more to Disney than the theme parks, there are natural parks too.

I visited Wekiwa State Park on April 25th, around 1pm. I tried putting their address in my GPS (iPhone) which lead me down a dead end. I finally called the park, and they gave me proper directions but told me they were about to hit capacity and would be closing the park in about 10 minutes. We drove there anyway,... More

I had an extra 4 hours before a conference gig in Orlando and wanted to see some sights. We left Orlando around 8 a.m. and were in the water by 9 a.m. Renting a kayak is seamless and inexpensive, but you want to get there early. I have only kayaked a few times before and this wasn't scary at all.... More

You don't have to go to the Everglades to see alligators in their habitat. Or have to travel to the coast to catch a glimpse of a Roseate Spoonbill. Why? Because the tropical flora, crystal clear water and fauna are here at Wekiwa Springs State Park. We rented a canoe to penetrate the springs and it well worth the effort.... More

I am a big fan of Florida springs and this is one of the best. The main boil, the source spring is HUGE. I love diving down deep (no equipment) as far as I could before the water pressure pushed me back out. It's very beautiful, and there are canoeing and kayak options available. I think you can rent these... More
