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.

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.

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 one night campground we enjoyed our stay, but not what we was looking for in a campground. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Tent.

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.

Rate shown is Florida senior resident. Our second visit here-no bears this time although the rangers said they were active. Great park, good hiking, plenty to do at the spring-canoe, kayak, swim, picnic, visit the museum. There are volleyball courts and horseshoe pits nearby-we did not check these out. There is a very limited grocery and snack shop attached to the museum. The grounds, roads, and trails were well kept and clean. The spring and areas around the trails were beautiful. We stumbled upon a crew filming a "Trailer" for a book being published about a medieval wizard-all were in period costume with at least one sword. Interesting! All sites are good, just some better than others. Next time we will try to get one on the outside of the circles, preferably 46 to 53. Sites 31 to 60 offer slightly more privacy between campsites due to trees and brush, but there are no bad sites here-most are large. TV and cell phone reception was very good. We got 40+ channels with a standard rooftop antenna. If you go, definitely take the time to walk the "Wet to dry" boardwalk trail {1/4 mile} just over the bridge. We had no trouble with a standard wheelchair. There are 26 miles of trails for hikers, bikers and horses with restrictions on some trails. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Wekiwa Springs State Park (pronounced Wekiva), is a nice park. We camped in a 35 foot RV trailer at site #21. Our serious issue with this park is the LOUD road noise from the busy road next to the camping area. Yes, the camp sites are within view of a very busy road. Homes and large powerlines are also part of the scenery. The noise from the road is easy heard in our trailer. If you do decide to camp here, attempt to get a camp site from #31-59. It is a little farther away, but the traffic can still be heard. Now that being said, the hiking trails here are rated a 10. There are many miles of hiking, mountain biking or horse back riding. The trails are narrow mostly with overhead cover from the trees. The trails are well maintained and well marked. There is Sand lake if you would like to fish. The campsites for the most part are deep. Our site was a bit narrow and wish Reserve America had listed the width of each site. Our Trailer has 2 slide-outs did fit, but it was tight. The sites are close together with little foliage between the sites. Bathrooms are very clean and well maintained. There is a very nice swimming area that is a natural spring with a water temperature of 72 degrees year round. You can rent canoes and kayaks from the concession stand. NOTE: 1 June 2010 this park starts a large construction project. Reservations will not be taken for camping. It will be on a first come, first serve basis. The construction in the camping area will probably be loud. The reason for the construction is this campground will be providing septic hookup at each site. The construction is expected to last 18 months. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very busy park. The springs and river are very nice. However make sure to go on the river when the kids are in school as they rent canoes to anyone and they do not give them instructions which means as a kayak-er you play dodge the canoes. The rangers make you very aware the bears are active, we saw none. We did see an alligator in the river and some birds and many turtles. The higher # sites 31-60 seem to be larger and have more trees. There are many hiking trails and such, there are many things to do in this park. The rest rooms were clean and there was plenty of hot water in the showers. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our second trip to this park. As before, the site was spacious, clean and close to the restrooms. The staff was friendly and courteous. There was an abundance of wildlife in the park which everyone enjoyed. The park had its fall festival going on the weekend we were there. There was plenty to see and do. This is one of our favorite parks and we will definitely return. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Travel Trailer.
