There was five of us hired kayaks for a couple of hours in late November, the whole park was really quiet which lead to a nice relaxing day. The kayaking was easy going and we saw allegations, turtles and all sorts of other wildlife whilst on the water. We stopped for food and drinks further down the river which was... More

Beat the crowds by arriving before 0900 and get far downstream in the peace and quiet. 1.75 hours down stream and 2.25 hours back. We saw hawks, eagles, osprey, kingfishers, otter, ibis, two types of egrets, four heron species, warblers, lemkins, woodpeckers, and several size classes of gators. Could not ask for a better day on the river.

This state park is definitely a hidden gem. We rented two kayaks and went in the morning before the crowds came. We were alone with the animals as we paddled in the river. We saw lots of alligators, turtles and otters. Animals are most active in the morning so go around 9am if you want to see lots. Afterwards we... More

Wekiva State park is easy to get to, good hiking trails. Their nature center is educational. and the staff is great. The place is very picturesque..especially the springs. And they have kayak rental which is fun to go on the river or just stay around the base and see all the wildlife. Very neat place. Mark that on your list.

Not crowded in late October, but this place must be a zoo on summer weekends. The springs feed a swimming hole somewhat larger than an Olympic pool, and roughly 4' to 6' deep in most places. There are some walking trails, but mosquitoes can be a major nuisance. There are also a few displays with local fauna and history of... More

Beautiful if you love walking around nature. The Springs are a bit chilly. And must be aware of all the Insects, snakes and reptiles and bears in and around the area. Watch your children at all times,be safe in the water and please be aware that there are Alligators around.

Most excellent state park in Florida. Only minutes from the major attractions. The natural spring is 72 degrees Fahrenheit all year around. The spring feature is excellent and there is a full liqueur bar at Weliva island. The Weliva island is dog friendly. Weliva island is not part of the state park. It can be canoed to from the state...

We started from kings landing and paddled to the marina. We started at 8:30am and just floated and took our time and reached the springs at 3:30pm. The river is shallow and is mostly clear. The river does not have the blue color that other spring feed rivers have. There is plenty of wildlife to see including the occasional alligator.... More
