We recently spent four nights at Wekiwa and we loved it. We have a large fifth wheel (38 feet), but we managed to get in our spot without much trouble. Some of the sites are a little tight, but they are manageable with a big rig. Most of the sites have quite a bit of tree cover, which can make satellite reception difficult, but we managed to get ours working, as well as our antenna. There is not much foliage between most sites, so I wouldn't say that there is a lot of privacy.

There were some sewer hookups in the other loop, but we didn't have a hookup, so we used the showers at the bath house. The showers were acceptable, mostly just older and dirty from recent showers. We used them later in the day, so I suspect they received a lot of use after their cleaning.

The park is beautiful, with hiking, horseback riding and the spring. We brought our own kayaks and went to Kings Landing, about 20 minutes from the park to launch. They say it's 8.5 miles down river, but Mapmyride said we went 11.8 miles. It was beautiful and completely worth it! Kings Landing picks you up at Wekiva Island and takes you back to your vehicle (they also rent canoes).

We plan on returning when we are back in the area, it is a very beautiful park and we enjoyed our time in the campground. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Canoeing or kayaking from Kings Landing. West Orange trail for biking or walking.

Campground is nice. Location is great near Orlando Bathrooms were clean with plenty of room. Some sites have full hookups the springs are about a mile from the camp ground Overall is a great place to stay but need to make reservations well in advance in the winter or the week ends. Road and sites can be a little tight for big rigs but doable. We will return. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park but showing signs of weak management and overuse. Camped during the high season so Shuffled from site to site during my two week stay. Florida State Parks allow you to reserve specific sites instead of non-specific site reservations, therefore, you have situations where a tent is on a 50+ foot long site and there are no sites available for larger motor homes. The entire time we were at the park, only one of our sites was cleaned by the camp host. Found trash in the fire rings, deep tire grooves in another, and trash littered around one loop. All day, people not suppose to be in the campground driving in and looking around. One day, some children threw wooden poles in the middle of the main road as a joke. Park rangers did nothing about it and the poles were still lying next to the road two weeks later as I was exiting the park. Both the campground and the spring are ALWAYS terribly crowded. Bathrooms were clean but dated and musty. Tight getting around corners in the loops. The area around the park is heavy built up and the traffic can be very heavy. Only 30 amp service, so you're only running one air conditioner. In March, this was proving almost inadequate, so you'd be roasting come Summer time. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

This park would rate a 10 if they had 50 amp service. We are a 'big rig' and 30 amps is just not enough. Since it was winter, we were able to manage; however, I think A/C would be a problem in the summer. Sites are large enough for a 42 ft. Motorcoach and the setting is lovely. There are also quite a few services in the area, so getting food, etc. is very easy. A good place to camp! We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Absolutely loved this park as the sites are well spaced, well kept and ease of entry for all rigs that we saw there. Bathrooms and showers were immaculate. Swimming in Wekiwa Springs is an experience as the water is quite cool and refreshing. Stayed three nights and will return. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Another nice state park. Nice hilly bike riding. Never went for a bike ride without seeing deer, turkeys, and gopher tortoises. Site was large and shaded. A lot of cigarette butts and trash left by previous occupants in our site. Spent half hour picking it up. Not campground's fault. Spring area is nice. We were here during the week. Imagine the Spring area gets very crowded on weekends. First time camping here, but will return. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The sites were sand/shell, wide and nicely spaced. Hiking and bike trails are well maintained. The spring is a good place to have a daily swim. Park staff were very friendly. This is one of the best State Parks in FL. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is one of the best public campgrounds that we have been to, at this time. The campground is well maintained and has tons of things to do. There is a swimming area, hiking trails, bicycling, fishing, and even a cabin area that can be rented for weddings, family reunions, etc., that includes a lodge, dining hall, gazebo, and chapel/meeting room. The wildlife is abundant. We will definitely return to this park. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely park and the campsites are roomy and well spaced. The only reason I didn't rate it higher is that it is very busy and the supposed first come first serve sites listed on the ReserveAmerica site are not as advertised. We were there first to get them for an additional nights stay, they were empty, but park staff told us they were being saved for extra camp hosts. So don't count on being able to use the walk up sites, even during the week. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park. Large spacious sites once you are in the park. Large immaculate bath house. Plus it had heat in January which is a rarity we discovered while traveling through Florida in the winter. The park is in a very crowded residential area and is difficult to find. I talked with other campers who had the same experience getting into the park. Just be aware prior to visiting the park. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

A very nice campground in this state park. Most of the sites are angled (as opposed to 90 degree) to the campground road making backing in very easy. Sites 1 - 30 have new sewer hookups available. Bathrooms were very clean. Lots of hiking trails available. Park is very busy on weekends so come during the week to avoid the crowds. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. This was our third visit to the park. This time we stayed at site 49. As usual the wildlife was plentiful and fun to watch. We enjoyed visiting the spring and spent time swimming. The bathroom/showers were clean. The park was patroled constantly by both law enforcement and the park rangers. While out looking for wildlife, one park ranger stopped us to give us information on other wildlife and where it could be found in the park. We will definitely return!

Great park in suburban Orlando that is loved to death. Facilities are good considering location so close to Disney, Kennedy Space Center, and other attractions. CG is a mile from the spring so no day use people around. Shady sites with good distance between neighbors though not much screening vegetation. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Site #2 close to clean RR was a shaded site but narrow. Two slides out, awning 1/2 out, touching trees. 30 amp, no 50 amp available. 1/2 mile or so bike ride up and down hills to swimming area. Beautiful large springs, no gators, was lovely and refreshing. No playground in campground which was a drawback for us. Turkeys and deer abound. "7" because it's too far to the swimming pool to make it a quick bike ride in the heat; the narrowish site and no playground. Wish they would move the Campground further in, away from suburbia. Can see houses from campground. They had nice pools. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.
