  • A group of 8 women who hike, kayak and horseback ride stayed in a large 3-3 house called the Hammock House in the Reserve for a long Holiday weekend. Not only did the park offer thousands of acres to ...  more »

  • Great family trip. Cool clear springs that feed all the way to the Wekiva River. Can canoe down the river (which I did with a Boy Scout troop), but shallow water requires fording some sections. Great ...  more »

  • Beautiful park that I've been going to since I was a kid. Never disappoints with it's year round 72┬░water. Always great for kayaking, canoeing, boating, swimming, fishing, and just simply observing nature. You can't go wrong by spending the day here! Great place to visit for a fun day or even just a couple of hours. You won't regret it, I promise!
  • Loved kayaking through these beautiful waters. Take plenty of sunscreen and water and even if your dog if you have one. Great fun day out for all the family
  • Had a wonderful time. Brought our own canoe and only pay $10 to drop it in. There are still a lot of trees down from the hurricane. But their team has done an amazing job clearing everything. Just be wise when you're out there.
  • While some parts were beautiful, most of the actual scenery is being cut down dug up, I remeber walking and seeing trees. Now you walk through sand then you get a little grass. There is a little black plastic thing that runs the length of the Walk kind of takes away from the naturalness and the beauty I just hate to see all this destruction to something that used to be so beautiful
  • Beautiful place.. A must see for tourists to Orlando. Great spot for tubing too.
