Kayaks for rent, and hiking/horse/biking trails. 4 camping areas, 2 of which are group camping areas.There is space or RVs in the group camping... More

My wife and I visited Wekiwa Springs State Park today, and although the weather was cool, we explored the park. The park brochure hiking trail map is not so good. We enjoyed the hike, but were never sure what options we had. Next we rented a canoe and visited the Wekiva Island area, then returned back to the Rock Springs... More

I was in the Orlando area for work and needed to burn some time. I love to hike on trails and I have a lifetime State Park pass. This park was reasonably close to my work and my motel so I spent about two hours exploring it. It has an enormous swimming area and even has a disabled chair hoist... More

The campground should receive zero stars. It is filthy! The restrooms were not well-maintained, and the sites were infested with no seeums and large ants. I expected much more from a campground that had been renovated within the past 3 years. The three stars are given for the Spring area, nature trails and friendly rangers. I recommend this park only... More

Just love Florida State Park Campgrounds overall but Wekiwa is outstanding. Large sites with water, electricity and sewer. Deer, rabbits, woodpeckers including Pileated, Carolina Wrens, Oalm Warblers, Grey Squirrels at the campsite. Large number and length of trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Great Birding opportunities. Beautiful spring fed waterways with rental of kayaks and canoes. Very close to... More

Campground is remote and laid back. Stayed in our motorhome while our kitchen was being renovated. Campsites are large and well forested, clean bath facilities. It is always booked on weekends. In the summer the swimming area at the springs is extremely popular with locals. Lots of hiking trails, swimming or canoeing for those so inclined.
