The 2,833 hectare (7,000 acre) Wekiwa Springs State Park offers a plethora of outdoor activities. The most popular is the park's spring, which supplies the Wekiva River with 159 million liters (42 million gallons) of water each day and flows into a warm, natural swimming pool of varying depth. Explore the network of trails via foot, bike, or horseback, or rent a canoe from the nature center on site. Have a picnic or a barbeque at one of picnic areas, complete with charcoal grills. If you want to extend your stay, pitch your tent or bring in your recreational vehicle for a night of camping at one of the many campsites, ranging from primitive to modern with amenities. Arrive early to guarantee your entrance into the park, as it can fill up.

  • Really enjoy the clear waters of Central FLA rivers, and this park & area is no exception. Depending on where you put in/start kayaking, you have varying distances you can go.. There is an "island" fu...  more »
  • We never tire of coming to this park. We've always brought our own kayaks and go as far as we wish along the clear fresh spring water & never fail to spot alligators, lL mpkins, Ibis and other birds -...  more »
  • Wekiwa Springs is a special place just north of Orlando. The canoeing and kayaking is slow paced and very picturesque. It's soooo green there and the water is crystal clear. It's a refreshing place on...  more »

  • Beautiful park with very reasonable equipment rental fees. Its a great place to spend a hot floriday day with your family playing in the cool fresh water. Get there early during the summer and beat the crowds, many parks turn people away once they reach capacity.
  • This is my favorite spring around. A relaxing place with the best views. It's specially a great place for "Kayaking" and "Paddle Boarding". The entrance is cheap and the rentals are reasonably priced.
  • Amazing place, if you rent a kayak or canoe you'll probably see an alligator. The waters crystal clear and not too cold. River water isn't too fast but it's upstream on the way back so pace yourself.
  • I absolutely love this place. The water is always clear and cool which feels amazing in the summer heat! It's one of my all time favorite places to visit during the summers.
  • Horrible experience! We arrived an hour late from opening hours. Their were vehicles getting out of the line and driving towards incoming traffic at high speeds, could not wait their turn. I called the Orange County police department, and explained the situation with cars jumping on side walks against incoming traffic, and was told that it was normal. Normal! Really! So public citizens can get hurt and its okay, because its normal traffic for this state park. Very disappointed. After I spoke to the Police department, all of the sudden the Park Ranger decided to do his job and try to control the traffic that was driving in the incoming lane. We left and will never return to such a poorly run state park.
