I'm lucky enough to live in Central Florida surrounded by bears, deer and alligators! If you're lucky, you'll see a few of these on your visit to Wekiva Island, one of our favorite local hangouts!! We... more »
Get there early since they close the gates once it gets overcrowded - before 10 I would recommend. Any time I tried to go after 10, i was turned away. Once you're in, kayak rentals are reasonably pric... more »
Great spot to rent and put in kayaks or canoes. Lot to see on the river. Safe and fun; good alternative to theme parks. Food is pretty good w/ large covered area to eat. Try it. more »
This was actually plan B after the line to get into the State Park was way backed up on Fourth of July weekend. Gave them a quick call and they said there was a few limited parking spaces available so our group headed over fast. Parking was a breeze and only $1 per adult for entrance. Large bar with a nice list of draft and bottled beers (including crafts) and wine. Service was quick. Nice selection of well kept canoes/kayaks. Our group rented 3 canoes and went down towards the springs and back. Lots of places to set up your own camp with chairs, etc. would definitely be interested in a cabana next time. It was nice large crowd and good mix of party goers and families. Pets Welcome! This is truly a Central Florida gem.
Local gem, drove from Miami to soak with the dogs. Thank you for having decent prices on craft brew! Made me drink more and try more beers! Service was great. The kids that are in charge of parking should have a sign with rules, got into a stupid discussion about where my beer came from... Overall Awesome time, people were nice, younger crowd but a mature vibe.
Laid back authentic Florida atmosphere. Great for any age group. People bring their dogs and family. Others sit and drink all day. Food and bar. Recreational area, cabana and canoe rentals. Gets super crowded in the summer months.
Great little spot. The water is perfection, plenty of chairs, but you can bring your own too. Would recommend you being an umbrella as there's little shade when sitting out on the dock (expected). The food/bar shack is open early don't worry about not bringing a cooler. It's dog friendly: a reminder to people without dogs. All the dogs were friendly, people around were friendly (even without dogs), encouraging the dogs to meet each other and whatnot.
Get here as early as possible to ensure you have a spot in the park! To conserve the environment, access is limited. We rented canoes for 2 hours for $19.15 and also floated on inner tubes in the springs. Super relaxing and a great way to cool off!
