We stopped here on the way to Blue Springs State Park. It's a nice park where you can swim in the spring water. Rental boats are available and there are some trails for hiking. A concession stand is available for light food and snacks. Very...More
We drove up from Kissimmee to explore this park and were pleasantly surprised!
The Main Focus is, of course, the spring. Florida has many springs that bubble millions of gallons of water each day. The water is always between 68-72 degrees. While you'll see some...More
The family went to spend the day and I was very pleased with the park. My granddaughter was able to find and identity lots of trees, leaves and nuts. She gets so excited when she sees a turtle that we are now painting turtles on...More
Two areas within the park, one with full hookup, one with water and electric. Stayed at campsite 37, which was ok except for road noise from the main road, and some home construction going on. Spring was nice, swimming available and a full service concession...More
We went here in December and rented several canoes. The river is calm and warm with real clarity, so you can see the fish, turtles & alligators beneath you. Lots of routes and diversions you can take to make things more interesting and there is...More
Trip Review - Days 7 & 8 - Rest day and Wekiwa Springs (1 Reply)
Day 7 So after four days visiting parks and a very early start to see the manatees, we all felt that a rest day was in order. Nice long lie in until around 10am followed by a late breakfast. We finally headed out around 11.30am and the five of us headed towards the Fantasia mini golf. It was cute and passed an hour or two. We were all pretty rubbish and a few balls ended up lost in long grass and at one point had to be hooked out of the lake! I didn't win but I also didn't come last! ...More

Just to add, disappointed to find out that my parcel appears to have been stolen :( I ordered two flower girl dresses for my wedding as I couldn't get them in the UK, I had them sent to our villa. Figured it would be ok as it's a gated community, there are postal drop boxes plus the management sometimes take parcels in. Found out on Sat that it had apparently been delivered two days ago, we hadn't received it. Couldn't contact anyone over the weekend. Tried the management company this...More

Non-theme park activities in Orlando (2 Replies)
We're going to be in Orlando from Dec 26-30 for a soccer tournament. Depending on scheduling we may have a few afternoons and/or mornings free and were looking for fun, outdoorsy things to do with our 12 year old. Not so interested in fighting the mobs at the parks but were thinking of maybe Wekiwa Springs State Park or Blue Spring State Park. Anyone have any thoughts on either park? One over the other (it looks like Wekiwa might be a little closer)? I also noticed an agency called Adventures...More

"were thinking of maybe Wekiwa Springs State Park or Blue Spring State Park. Anyone have any thoughts on either park? " Blue Spring would probably be the better option (if it gets a little cooler) because of the chance to see Florida manatees in their natural habitat. It has been unseasonably warm so far so it might be best to phone Blue Spring the day before you want to go to find out how many manatees are "in".
