  • We landed in Florida during unusually cold January weather (courtesy of "the Bomb Cyclone"/Polar Vortex) so when we'd read about a "Friday Night Bonfire" at Wekiva Island we incorporated it into an af...  more »
  • Nice people, gorgeous scenery, good food and cold drink! Just sitting in a chair by the water... so relaxing. Make this a stop!  more »
  • Did a day trip to Wekiva Island and rented a canoe. Took it up to the state park to swim in the springs - water was crystal clear while we were there. Beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife to view. T...  more »
  • Water is the darkest I've ever seen it. My friend was driving 3 over the limit and got scolded by the owner. She drives a Tesla. Moving forward, I have to say that the property is extremely well kept. The coconut shrimp is top 5 I've ever had. Place has good potential. If it wasn't for my pilot being scolded I would of had a better feel of the place. Really not a good way to start.
  • It's Florida in a nutshell! You can mingle with the locals, bring your well behaved dog, sip a cold adult beverage all while taking in the beauty of natural Florida. For the adventurer, you can rent a kayak or canoe and paddle down the river to get up close and personal with nature. Simply love this place!
  • Wonderful place, nice family friendly atmosphere, especially for a place with an outdoor bar! We took our dog here to run freely and jump in the refreshing waters. Good choice of drinks, occasional live music, volleyball tournaments, and other fun events. Hope to come back here to relax again soon. Great place to rent kayaks too!
  • White sand beach adjacent to scenic Wekiva river. Canoe/kayak rentals. Beer and wine bar with catering/food truck on-site. Beach volleyball court, dog friendly, large movie screen, with picnic tables and other wooden chairs for ample riverside seating. Delightful and well-informed staff. All good!
  • Wonderful place to take your dog and let them swim around a bunch. They’ve recently rebuilt over the years using a lot of solar panels and energy saving structure stuff. They rent kayaks and sell food. There is an open bar, volleyball, and live music during crowded times. Would love to come back there some day.
