Fun at the springs with kayaking!!

We went with kids from 8-13, the kayaking is well worth it but I suggest a double kayak with the kids. It was a peaceful 2 hours for kayaking but you can make it as short or as... read more

We went with kids from 8-13, the kayaking is well worth it but I suggest a double kayak with the kids. It was a peaceful 2 hours for kayaking but you can make it as short or as long of a trip as you want. The kayaks are about $18-24 to rent for 2 hours. We saw wild life (small... More

I went as a day trip with a few friends, and it was a really lovely experience. Beautiful scenery and the water was great in the Florida heat! We went canoeing through the channels and swimming in the larger pool area. There was also a small kiosk with food and drinks, but not the best variety (you're best to bring... More

This was a big state park. Even though there were a lot of guests, you didn't feel crowded. Of course, we were there in the late morning to mid-afternoon. As we were leaving, there was a line of cars entering. We were glad we left when we did. They do have a concession stand, but we brought our own food.... More

Went there for the July 4th holiday! Always peaceful, beautiful and clean. They always accommodate us. We stayed there for 2 weeks in June and back again in .July. One of favorite places to camp, see wildlife and hike. The rangers are a delight. We love this park and the springs!

We visited the campgrounds for the first time and must say that it was refreshing. The campgrounds are well kept and you feel one with nature. Our site (#1) had sewer, electricity, a ground fire pit (BBQ), and a long picnic table. If you are planning on visiting the springs, make sure you bring, bikes, moped, or a car to... More

This was my first trip back to Wekiwa Springs since before having children and I was a little worried about the lack of lifeguards & the swimming area's openness to the river & the alligators that inhabit it. It didn't take long for me to relax and truly enjoy the day in this scenic spot. We went early on a... More

This was my first visit to a spring that I specifically went with the purpose of swimming in the water The cost of entering the park is $6's per car for all day which at present is 8 to 8, so good value if you are there all day The car park itself is a short drive from the entrance... More

Great place to bring your family to hang out for a day to swim and cookout. Had a blast being there with my family and to try something new. You can rent canoes at a great place and jump in the water to cool off. Be prepared to pay $6 to get into the park and looking for a parking... More

Beautiful spring. Only problem is no safe shallow areas for young children. No beach area at all. Parking is very close to the spring.
