Great Camping
Mar 2021 • Couples
We camped for 2 nights at Wekiwa Springs. The sites are nice and spacious. Some have sewer and some don’t. The sites without sewer have a bathhouse in the middle of the inner circle. The bathhouse looked very clean. We decided to ride our bike to the springs. It’s only about 1.5 miles away. Bikes are not allowed past the parking lot so make sure to bring a lock. We walked down to the picnic area/ Springs. There’s a wooded short trail that takes you around the left part of the park. We didn’t walk the other side. The water was kind of cold but it looked beautiful! You can rent kayaks or bring your own. A fun place to relax. Dogs are not allowed past the picnic area.

Wekiwa Springs is doing a very good job with Covid 19 procedures, the water is warm and clear. Very good kayaking, lots of fish. Lots of trails for hiking, seeing wildlife.

Can you guess who first time it is?
Mar 2021 • Couples
First time kayaking and was very scared at first. Mostly the fear was from the comment the rental staff stated. Regardless of being told it was alligator decides to go against my norm and loved it. There were GATORS mostly on the banks. The people was nice and we played music. At the end if the trail there was a hang out spot to drink and take pictures.

Fun Place
Mar 2021
We were looking for a place to be outdoors enjoying nature and having a family visit after a winter cooped up in New England. While this wasn't the most beautiful State park I've ever been to, it was interesting with the spring, a hit with the kids especially. (It's very safe because the cool water is only about 4 feet deep.) We had arrived by 10:00 on a Saturday and thankfully were able to get our three cars in the limited parking.

Swimming hole and Kayaking river
Feb 2021
The spring is powerful, the water perfectly clear and fairly warm, though Rock Springs at Kelly Park near here is way more exciting, but currently closed for construction “until further notice” —so call ahead. This park was not as much fun, but at least is is open. The picnic areas at both parks are large mostly shaded and pleasant.

Great outdoor escape in Central FL. Pretty cool to spend some time even though it can get very crowded.

Beautiful Water
Jan 2021
We took a day trip but make sure you get there early! We arrived on a day in January literally 30 minutes after opening and it was already full. They suggested we come back around 2 so we went to the Apopka Drive Thru trail for a few hours. When we came back the line was quite long but we were able to get in.

The water was BEAUTIFUL and pretty warm. There were dressing rooms to change into but the lockers are very small that are located near the Kayaks. Lots of people there but it is a large area so it never felt too crowded.

We rented Kayaks and the river is beautiful, but we learned we are horrible paddlers and spent a lot of time in the trees. We did see several gators on the banks which was amazing.

great fun kayaking
Nov 2020
Wonderful kayaking for the day. Arrived about 10am and plenty of parking, but there were lines later in the afternoon and few spaces. Short line to get kayaks and canoes – took about 10 minutes to wait and process. They do keep your license until you return the kayak. Lots of people were on the river, its not very wide. Plenty of wildlife – saw gators and lots of birds. It was about $26 to rent single kayak for a couple of hours. Great fun.

Yes, visit the Springs, but don't miss the trails. Walk or bike over to Sand Lake. Keep quiet and you may very well see some deer!
