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

Visited during Thanksgiving. Groups were loud after quiet hours and let their dogs run off leashes. Twice someone tried to open our door. Guessing they were intoxicated?? The trails were terrific. Canoe/Kayak launch could be nicer. Wildlife is awesome. All in all not a horrible visit.

We had the opportunity to tent camp here for 3 days and 2 nights. Glad we stepped out of our "comfort zone" to do so. It did help that the weather was perfect, but the park itself was everything we hoped it would be. Sometimes, the write-up and photos on the Florida State Park website can be a tad too... More

Yes, that's exactly what my canoeing experience at Wekiwa Springs State Park was like. It was one-of-a-kind. I highly recommend it. If you're 'lucky', the Wekiva River can be crawling with alligators. We only saw three when we went. The river is flanked by woodlands so it makes you feel like you're canoeing on a river in a jungle. A... More

Me and my boyfriend wanted to do something different this time on our Orlando vacation and i found pictures of this place and just had to try it out! And I did not regret that decision at all! My boyfriend got to hold a small snake, and a ranger spoke to us about all the different animals in the park.... More
