I live right around the corner from this beautiful State Park and I highly recommend it! Camping, hiking, biking, picnicking, swimming. canoeing....family fun galore! The clear, Sparkling clean Spring is a great swimming hole with a grassy covered hill for suntanning. Restrooms are provided , along with a concession in the summer months. A boardwalk divides the Spring from the... More

A beautiful place to spend a day. The springs have crystal clear water as does the Wekiva river. A canoe trip down the river is a special event. Primitive wilderness surrounded by all types of wild life including gators, large turtles and all types of birds will make this a trip to remember. t

We camped here for a few nights over spring break. The park is well maintained and very quiet. I was surprised at how quiet it is here considering its location. The spring and swimming area are beautiful. The trails are also very nice and well kept.

I love to go hiking, and Wekiwa Springs State Park has more hiking trails inside the park than most state parks in Florida. I also love how the park rangers burn the forest trees as often as they do. They understand that this particular landscape needs regular fire, and I have been impressed with their attention to detail. I haven't... More

Our son and daughter in law live in the Orlando area, so we're always looking for non amusement park things to do. Wekiwa Springs Park is Florida unspoiled. Beautiful and unbuilt a canoe trip brings you past all sorts of wildlife and tropical pants. A great place to spend a day.

I stopped off at this lovely state park for an afternoon of sunning and reading. What a great place, right in middle of town, and a great neighborhood. I wish I had this in my backyard like the local residents do! Very friendly and informative park rangers. $4 entry (single person). I drove thru the campground and it looks very... More

Coming to Wekiwa on a cloudy 80 degree day Winter Day was like HEAVEN for me!) While visiting the area with friends from high school (30 years post graduation!), our "local" friend took us to Wekiwa Springs to... More

So my wife and i wanted to go to Wekiwa Springs and enjoy some by the springs and ride some of the bike trails that are offered. While we enjoyed our time be forwarned that bike trails are only for very experienced off roaders. The trails are mostly sugar sand which is very hard to ride through. The other option... More

Be aware this park is difficult for motorhomes with tow to get in and out of the park. It is located in a residential area and their is a lot of traffic getting into the park. Once we were in our site the park itself is very nice. Very clean and large bathhouse. Camping sites had enough space to not... More

Excellent place to spend the day with the family, swimming canoeing and having a picnic. Saw lots of gators, turkeys, deer etc etc. A top day out cheap and a break from the mouse.
