My husband and I camped here for three nights. The property is beautiful and the wildlife abundant. Forget getting a satellite signal. The swimming hole is an amazing spring with cool and refreshing 72 degree water. The park staff were very nice and accommodating. Our only complaint is the bath house. There was soap scum and hair on the shower... More

Visited here on 9th September and was just under an hour north of Orlando to get here. Being a keen hiker in the UK, I wanted to walk some of the 13 miles of hiking trails although there’s plenty of other activities to do here such as swimming in the famous 72 degree spring, bicycling, horseback riding, canoeing and kayaking....

Its cheap and theres lots to do. The hiking trail we did was awesome! (The Orange trail). We saw loads of different fauna and even wild deer during the middle of the day! Truly amazing. After hiking we dipped into the springs. Very cold, but refreshing and fun. The water is very clear and I loved it. Theres toilets, a... More

I like to scout out a campground before staying, and my aunt and I took a trip there to check it out. Showers were clean and they got hot (I tried them), and the camp sites were really different. Some in the sun, some in shade and some a mix. Some were small and some were large spaces, but all... More

Saw a black bear and an armadillo there. The only bad thing is you camp quite a distance from the spring but still we really enjoyed our stay.

Excellent for camping! The campground was spotless,bathrooms are clean.Most camp sites are large and shaded.The park also features miles and miles of walking/hiking trails.We will pass on the springs part of the park!! WAY to crowded with the rudest people I've dealt with in years....Adults and children! No respect for personal space or property,I can't tell how many times our... More

We camped here to visit universal studios. It was a little bit far (25mins) but way cheaper than anywhere around. The camp grounds were nice but about a mile from the springs. We didn't bring bikes so we took the car there. It would've been ok to walk but we had walked all over universal and wanted to chill in... More

My husband and I live in the area and go here every so often. During the summer months it's extremely busy. If you don't get there within the first two hours they will usually be full and close the entrance down until people start to leave later in the day. This time that we went I couldn't go in the...

We did research prior to trip but I gotta say best to visit this place for yourself. They rent canoes, kayak etc here in the park...very convenient. The water was clear. You can paddle to Kings Landing or Rock Springs. There were people of all ages on the water with canoe,kayak or stand up paddle boards. We saw alligators,otters, turtles,various... More

I had read about Wekiwa Springs when researching our trip to Florida and was looking forward to checking it out! It seemed very popular with local people, lots of groups of young people hanging out, people eating, hanging out with their kids, enjoying the sunshine. It was a lovely environment, it's a nice way to escape hectic tourist-Orlando. One really... More
