I visited last week on a weekday. It wasn't crowded. There was only person swimming at the time. The water is bracingly cold, but after real feel temps of 100 plus it was welcome. You get used to after a minute. We also rented a canoe for 20 bucks for 2 hours. The kids were not enamoured, but I thought... More

Fantastic, refreshing, the only park I have every visited the had not only handicap ramps but also a lift chair the the elderly and handicap to get in and out of the springs. If in the area this is a must visit with only a 5 or 6 dollar fee for the car. You can enjoy a breaktaking and fun... More

My family and I went here after we couldn't get into Kelly Park. We mostly swam in the springs. The nature paths were pretty cool

Wekiva Springs is a great place to relax, take a picnic and spend time with family, friends or as a couple. The natural springs offers a swimming area, kayaking and/or nature visit. They have full facilities with a small snack bar, kayak rentals and various places to sit back and enjoy the day. It is family friendly, but please be... More

The Florida outdoors besides the beaches never really did too much for me. A lot of flat land and unimpressive vistas. Wekiwa is an exception though and about as good as Florida state parks get. There is a big natural spring with a bank of grass in front to lay and have a picnic. There are also canoe rentals which... More

Enjoy the beautiful springs, rent a canoe, long hiking trails, swim and sun! Stay in the protected areas, don't go swimming outside of these areas (gators, snakes, etc all in their natural environment). 30 min north of Orlando, worth a day trip!

Beautiful and natural springs for 72 degree water swimming. Surrounded by nature. Simply wonderful. Canoe and kayak rentals available. These can be taken to non swimming areas full of Florida wildlife such as turtles, birds and alligators. Good barbecue for a fee available on site. Only $6 per vehicle entrance fee. A bargain price for a wonderful family day.

It is just 6 dollars to gain entry into the park. We visit this place every time we come to Florida, we much prefer it to the plastic Disney parks. The water is ice cold and will take your breath away when you first pluck up the courage to take a dip. The day we were there we were surprised... More
