Fabulous site but quite humid in August. Humidity was very high when we went and the trees made it feel like a jungle. Site was spacious. Spring is very cold and wild animals walk free around the area. We crossed the path of deers quite often during our 14 days stay. Saw a raccoon at the spring. They also do controlled forest fire there and they burned the forest around the campground while we were there. It was fascinating to see. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lots of power problems! My surge protector kept shutting it down due to power spiking at 130 Volts on one leg 125 on the second leg. (50 amp service) When I called the office and reported the problem I was told to take my surge protector off!!!! Oh really! And yes the was a lightning storm going on also! I was told my multiple members of staff it was my RV that's was the problem. The next two places we camped we did not have any problems We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our go-to for weekend away place. Campground is nice and park has trails and bike riding. Of course the springs but not during the day when everyone uses them.

This place gets busy on weekends. If you leave the park you are told you will set in line to get back in. They need a separate entrance for the registered campers to use. But in all it is a great place to camp and the rangers are very friendly. Going to the springs in late afternoon after the day trippers have left is also relaxing. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice state park near urban metropolitan Orlando. Our back in site was great. Several warnings about bears and preventative measures, since this park is on the southern end of a very primitive area. The springs are quite nice. Very clear water. Quite a few swimmers, kayakers and canoers due to the mild February weather. A beautiful refuge in the woods close by to urban shopping and dining.

Definitely use the trails from the camping loop to the springs. It leads through palmetto fields and wetlands using boardwalks. Though you are "out in the woods" in this park, you are very close to dining and shopping.

Site is tree covered but had a SW sky so was able to receive satellite signal. Sites are sand/dirt with FHU and level. All sites in 1-30 have FHU, the second loop have FHU on half of the sites. They are long enough for the rig and parking of towed vehicle. The approach road is paved and wide enough for big rigs. Good cell reception on the camp sites. The spring head looks like a large pool. A bulkhead surrounds the spring with lots of swimmers on the weekend. Refer to my tips for kayaking information. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

An outfitter provides pick up service for your return back to your vehicle. The outfitter is located at Kelly Landing, about 12 miles away. The kayak down the Wekiwa river to King's Landing is about 8 miles. However the river is clogged with debris from the hurricane.. The best part of kayaking is to paddle up river for a mile to Rock Springs. The water is clear all the way and just beautiful.

This is a very large state park located next to a busy suburban area, so lots of stores and restaurants are nearby. All sites are adequately sized back-ins on sand/dirt. It is helpful to use a large outdoor mat to keep the sand out of your RV. Sites in the 1-30 loop are FHU with 20/30/50 amps. Some of the sites in the 31-60 loop are also FHU with others only W/E-30 amp. The campground is in a sandhill forest with heavy shade, but the trees are well trimmed. Bathrooms/showers are up to date and clean. There are miles of hiking/biking trails. The springs and swimming area are lovely and there were very few people there mid-week in January. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Each campsite has plenty of room between them. Springs are about a mile away from the campground but easily done by bike. Several trails lead into the campground. Saw several turkeys and deer. Rangers were friendly. Springs were nice but crowded. Prices at gift shop were reasonable. No seeums were bad around 3-5 pm. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Bring bug spray! No seeums were very bad during several hours a day. Biking is the best way to get to the springs. Bring a lock for the bikes because they are not in visible when you are in the springs.

Great campground with lots of hiking trails and easy biking on the park roads. As always, rangers were very friendly and helpful. Sites were roomy and level, but not a lot of privacy. Most have hammock posts. Bring plenty of skin so soft or Deep Woods as the no-see-ums are blood thirsty and a real pestilence. Bathrooms were clean but a little dated, but hot showers with decent pressure. Good cell coverage and lots of OTA channels, plus Apopka has all you'll need close by. Swimming in the spring was great (70 degree water) and the area is large so it doesn't feel crowded even with a lot of people there. Park is popular for day use, so you may wait 20-45 minutes to get back into the park from a morning bagel run. Lots of wild turkeys wandering the park, great photo opp. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wakewa (pronounced "Wakeva" by the locals) is a large state park in an urban area; large enough though, to isolate you from the neighborhood - all except the traffic noise which was always present in the campground. Most sites are adequate size, some a little tight, but there is pretty good privacy between sites. There are grocery stores nearby. The spring and stream from it provide a good place to swim and canoe/kayak. Rentals are available if you don't bring your own. Fairly long hiking trails and board walks through the wooded areas. Park staff were all friendly and helpful, except the one who checked us in on our arrival. He was very terse; must have just been a bad day for him. Upon leaving, we were confronted by a stopped up dump station drain; other campers said it had been that way for "days". I reported it and the staff seemed to be surprised. Maybe so. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is clean and not very packed with campers. Spaces seem to be spread out. Weekends during the summer are very, very busy at the springs. They do close the gate to day people when the spring in considered full. Be mindful of wild life, especially bears. Walking or biking to the springs from the site is about 2 miles, would recommend driving, if you can find a spot to park. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Prepare for heavy crowds at the spring if you prefer weekend camping during the summer.

Watch out for bears, they are there and will wonder into the camp at night.

Beautiful park with shady campsites, mature oaks, and lots of wildlife. The park seems to be well maintained and the spring was awesome! Not having a sewer hookup was a minor downfall, but the difficult nature of their check-in process is my biggest complaint. Because of the long line to get into the park, they make RVers pull into a parking lot that does not have a good turning radius especially with a toad. Despite this, we can't wait for our next stay here! We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, heavily wooded park with springs approximately 1/2 mile away. Located in and upscale suburban setting away from heavy traffic and noise. Beautiful and heavily wooded.

Trees are in their natural state, that is some hang quite low, making drivers pay close attention on park roads. If your RV is very tall you WILL want to watch your turns where there are trees.

One of the few state parks we found that could accommodate our 42' 5th wheel, and had full hook-ups. We had a back in site but were able to maneuver in with enough room for our truck to fit. Park and site was nice and wooded. Site was shaded with trees. The firepit also was used as a BBQ. Tubing within the park. Bring your own tubes and save on renting. Bring chairs/blanket to sit after tubing and a cooler for food/drinks. They also had a snack bar. We were able to put our own kayak in for free. They also rent kayaks and paddleboards. Nice park. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Close to Rock Springs/Kelly Park where you can also go tubing. Make sure you arrive when the park opens in the summer. They only allow a limited number of guest parking. Mt. Dora, a nice place to visit, is 25 minutes away. One hour from Orlando but feels like a world away!

We stayed 3 nights. The spring is very nice to swim in. This park is a great place to have bikes as the spring and fishing hole is very far away from the RV park. The "Noseeums" are nasty after around 3 in the afternoon. It is a nice safe park. The main road is very close to the RV park and can be loud sometimes.
