If you want to try and beat the summer heat and don't mind a lot of people, this is the place for you. If you are looking for a place to swim that isn't chlorinated and is outdoors, this might be the place for you. However, if you are searching for a true Florida natural spring experience, try Blue Spring... More

Love this park, it fills up very fast, year round! Must get there early before the masses show up and the water quality turns to crud. Nice fissure spring opening, 50 feet long 8-10 feet accross at main opening. I witnessed a real ding-dong down in the spring head clawing at limestone when he clawed away wall support and got...

We were on vacation and spent a day exploring the park, walking along the trails and just relaxing by the spring. We rented a canoe and went down the river...we observed nature at its best....there were turtles, birds and alligators along the river....made our visit even more exciting. The park provides areas for cooking/grilling and has a kiosk that offers... More

We recently spent four nights at Wekiwa and we loved it. We have a large fifth wheel (38 feet), but we managed to get in our spot without much trouble. Some of the sites are a little tight, but they are manageable with a big rig. Most of the sites have quite a bit of tree cover, which can make... More

I used to live about 30 mins from here and I enjoyed going there to swim, bike and run. The mosquitos are horrible though so do not forget your deet! This is a frequently visited and over populated park on the weekends and holidays so the place looks worn out and does not receive the best maintenance. Overall though Ive... More

We were introduced to this springs by local friends. So glad they asked us to go along! Wekiwa was on my 10 years old's "Top 3" list from our entire vacation. No glitz, no plastic. Just a good old-fashioned (cold) swimming hole. And more...which you can read in the other reviews. ;-)

This is a beautiful state park that is easily visited from Orlando. The main attraction is swimming in the Wekiwa Springs. The large springs are developed for easy access and public use. There is a large grassy area for sunbathing as well as picnic tables in wooded areas. A short nature trail with a boardwalk starts next to the springs.... More

Wekiwa Springs is a great state park. We camped there with our RV. Springs are beautiful. You can canoe or kayak down the river seeing wildlife. On our kayak trip we saw herons, turtles, snake and yes alligators. The camp sites are well maintained. Not all campsites have sewer, so be aware which site you book if you would like... More
