“Central Florida's natural, pure oasis”

"Nestled at the head of the Wekiva River lies a tropical oasis. This is what Central Florida used to look like. Wekiwa Springs State Park is, in many ways, a trip to the past, to when the Timucuan Indians roamed Central Florida. And it's just an hour from Orlando.  In addition to camping, there are thirteen miles of well-maintained trails, perfect for the hiking, biking or horseback riding outdoor enthusiast. The Wekiva River itself offers plenty to do to cool down, from kayaking to canoeing to snorkeling in the spring. There are rental concessions if you don't have your own canoe or kayak. 42 million gallons of pure spring water flow from Wekiwa Springs to Wekiwa Springs Run, every day. The water then joins Rock Springs Run and forms upper Wekiva River. In 1941, the Apopka Sportsman Club purchased the land, which is currently Wekiwa Springs State Park. The area was used for hunting and fishing until it was sold to the state of Florida in 1969. The Florida Park Service Ranger Academy provides twice-yearly training for Florida's park rangers. The academy moved from O'Leno State Park to Wekiwa Springs State Park in 1977. President Lyndon Johnson signed the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System into law in 1968, and this helped to preserve rivers that have exceptional natural, cultural and recreational importance. Rock Springs Run State Reserve and Wekiva Falls Park are protected under the act. This is a very popular park on weekends. To ensure entrance into the park, we recommend arriving early, otherwise, the parking area will be full and you may not be able to enter. Options for camping include a full facility campground and primitive camping areas. Canoe and kayak rentals are available.

My wife loves canoeing!! She claims you can see places you are not able to see while touching your feet on the ground. I think she was talking about Wekiwa Springs State Park.

Adventure, beauty, peace and harmony are hugging nature in this place. Absolutely gorgeous experience!

The only negative was the long lines we had to wait to get there!
Heard from other visitors that one must go there very early in order to avoid it!

I love this park. The springs are beautiful as well as the grounds around it. So close's to so much to do and still feel like you are out in the wildness.
