The park is in utter disarray. When we arrived the man helping us park couldn't find the sewer hookup. When he finally found it we were made to park a ways away from the electrical and water and had to go buy another water hose. There is no definition of your space so your neighbors just let their kids and animals wander through. We had 9 families beside us that all knew each other and there must have been 50 kids running through our space on motorcycles and bicycles.

We called on the animals because we couldn't even sit down to eat and there is a leash law however they don't enforce it so 3 dogs kept coming to our space while their owners continued to get drunk.

The swimming hole with the fountain stank of sewer and the smell came up to our camping area the entire time. So much for having an appetite. Oh and our picnic table was right beside the neighbors sewer hose, literally almost on top of it.

We felt like we were in an episode of Christmas vacation with cousin Eddie and all of his red neck friends at this park. Unless you plan to drink your entire stay and be as drunk as everyone else, don't stay here. Oh, and our bikes got stolen by one of our neighbors who thought it was funny to take it on a joy ride. Never again! We camped at Wekiva Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is our 5th year at Wekiva and I guarantee we will not be back. Previous years had been good but this year was terrible. The office staff had their good and bad days and when they had a bad day, it was bad almost to the point of being arrogant. The sites had not been cleaned of tree branches, grass cut (some cases it was 8" high weeds) in 3 months. We asked several times for ant killer (Yes there are lots of ants), lawn mowing or trimming, large palm tree branches to be picked up and nothing was done. Several of our neighbors complained about a neglected dog barking inside a permanent unit and it is still barking all day long. Due to the extremely wet season, the area between the road and the sites was just a mud hole. Some units could not get into their sites due to the mud and if they got in, they got stuck with the tow vehicles. Some lots have 6-8" ruts in them and have never been fixed. Needless to say, these sites are not suitable to park a unit on them now. Oh, the campground put mulch and sand on the mud but that only made things worse. In order to clean the deck chairs around the pool, they threw them into the pool overnite and hoped chemicals would clean them. One day, they cleaned the pool early in the morning, then power washed the deck around the pool putting all the dirt from the deck back into the pool. This campground flies the Good Sam Club flag and it is a disgrace to Good Sam. The only recommendation I would make -- STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!! We camped at Wekiva Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground is close to where we bought our RV and have it serviced. We first stayed here to move our "stuff" from the old coach to the new one and stayed again to have some service done. We had a long pull-through both times. All of the sites are grass. We used blocks for the jacks. It rained while we were there, but the grass is thick enough that we didn't track in a lot of dirt. It is a very clean and well maintained park and we will definitely return. We camped at Wekiva Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I will give the staff 5 stars as they are great in customer service. The layout of utilities is not typical. I had to re-position 3 times to get close enough to power, water, and sewer and still had to get a 20 ft extension on my power cable. A staff member told me they had extension cables and brought me one at no cost. Had to use extension on water hose as well to hook up within range of sewer. Water pressure was low and Verizon cell service was good. The sites are grass but it is thick and nice. The weekend crowd is rough with heavy drinking and loud music near the spring. Deputy sheriffs work security on weekends. Quiet time is 10 PM to 8 AM and the 10 PM quiet time is a joke. We might return during the week but not the weekend because of the water park customers. I wouldn't return at all if the staff weren't so helpful and nice. We camped at Wekiva Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is close to where we live and every time we just want to get away we go. It is spacious and friendly and a great place to take walks. We have enjoyed every visit. Great place to chill out and walk the dogs, there is also a Tiki Bar and great swimming. We love it. It is on a natural spring. Well maintained, has a store for the essentials.

This is not your typical quiet campground. The rules are very relaxed. They allow non campers and locals to use the facility with the exception of the campground guest pool. They allow dogs and the dogs are also allowed to swim in the natural spring area. Many activities: Canoeing, natural spring, 30 foot water slides ($ 1 - 15 for all day), kids play areas, zip line($ 5- 15 all day), guest only heated pool, tiki bar Think of this place as a Spring type atmosphere with heavy drinking on weekends and holidays. Throughout the week I would think its more quiet. The campground is rather large with 850 sites, so its a great place to book at last minute or if the nearby state parks are booked. AT&T 4g service was great, we streamed Netflix without any issues. We stayed at site 743 which was not the best because of the non shade and the one palm tree right in front of the site that blocked the view and provided no shade. The water was turned off twice on two different days because of an issue. The electric tripped the breaker once throughout our stay. The last day of our visit we had no problems with electric or water. We had a great time and planning to go back again. The staff is helpful and friendly. However, do to the heavy drinking use common sense to avoid problems and stay away from areas where obvious binge drinking is going on. Most of the rowdy crowd from what we saw stays near the DJ and loud music at the main entrance to the natural spring. At the campsite their shouldn't be to much of a commotion. Some campers played their music throughout the day but at night after 9pm it was pretty much quite. I think the non quest have to leave at 7pm. We camped at Wekiva Falls RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great family park. Something for everyone to do or not do. Biking, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, and more! I was a bit concerned about the sulfur scent from the springs, but it is barely noticeable and then only occasionally. Every staff member we encountered was very helpful. We will definitely stay at this park again and highly recommend it. We camped at Wekiva Falls RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for the month of Feb. There are 800 sites here and probably that many dogs with no training. And loud motorcycles at all hours of the day and nite. Staff friendly, clean park but noisy. We will not stay here again unless for passing thru. We camped at Wekiva Falls RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here for the month of February. The park was quite busy, but because of its size, there were lots of empty sites. The park was kept clean, although garbage would sit for many hours at the waste cans waiting to be picked up. There were a lot of dogs, and some barked constantly but most were leashed. For the size of the park there are not a lot of washroom facilities and no showers at the pool to use after a swim. The sites were fairly level, but many of the concrete pads need to be replaced. The park is working hard to get picnic tables at each site. The sulfur smell from the springs was noticeable some days but was not overly obnoxious. The springs swimming area was fun to try and was very popular with the young crowd on the warm weekends. Of course along with the young crowd there is loud music which would be annoying if you were parked near the picnic areas. There is almost no security at the park, and since it is open to day users, we found this aspect disturbing although we never heard of any campers having any issues. The natural areas of the park are beautiful with lots of birds and fish to watch in the river. Canoeing and kayaking on the river is available. We probably would return to this park but only for a week. We camped at Wekiva Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed here 3 weeks in Feb. After seeing some of the reviews, was a little concerned, any concerns were unwarranted. Friendly staff, dogs yes, uncontrolled, no. Had no loud music, motorcycles or anything else at night. It could get a lot busier when it's warmer due to the swimming but overall was quiet while we were there. Seems they are working hard to improve the campground, some areas look like they were neglected until the new ownership.Trash did set for a while but was picked up; even the man picking up the trash was friendly and stopped to talk. Management put down pet friendly ant powder when we first checked in to try to deter Florida ants. Met some really nice snowbirders that have been coming for years. Would definitely stay here again. Enjoyed our stay. We camped at Wekiva Falls RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Many of the sites have utilities in a common/shared areas which requires extended water hoses, etc. to reach utilities. I did not have a 2nd 25' hose with me, so I needed to change sites. Office was accommodating, but many of the sites are unlevel and appear in need of maintenance. I would never stay here again. We camped at Wekiva Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We saw this place on Living Social and got a 3 night stay with two canoe rentals and a $10 credit at the Tiki bar for $75. Having just purchased our travel trailer we thought that this would be a good outing. The campground is pretty much wide open with very little privacy or shade. Parking is on grass and most site have a cement pad. The smell from the Sulphur Springs can be intense, but it didn't really bother us. We came here shortly after hurricane Sandy passed Florida. It was windy the entire time that we were here. We arrived on a Sunday and should have gone canoeing then, but decided to wait. A front passed thru that night and it got really cold, so we never used the canoes. We also didn't realize that the Tiki bar was only open on weekends, but they allowed us to use our $10 credit in the store. The location is nice, out of the way. There just isn't much character. I would think canoeing the river would be nice and there was quite a bit to do within a relatively short drive. This park seems fairly popular with locals who visit the spring on weekends, but it was really quiet come Monday ( the cold temperatures didn't help). Because of bears in the area trash pickup is at 9am and you can't put it out before 7am. Not being a morning person this was a bit of an inconvenience, but not a huge issue. The staff, in general, was very nice. I wasn't impressed enough to return, but was not unhappy with the experience. We camped at Wekiva Falls RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

PARTY ON! That says it all. If you are young or young at heart, this is a great place. In the summer, this is not for those looking for a quiet place to settle into retirement. We stayed here for a few days and enjoyed the entire time in the water, watching everyone have fun and hanging out after hours. We look forward to bringing our camping friends here to play. Not for everyone, but definitely a place we will visit again. Clean facilities, great staff, good security and interesting hook-ups. (Yes, they are weird.) Wish we lived closer than Tampa.

I was here on a monthly rate for 2 months. This campground recently became a KOA. It appeared to me that most of the residents were Snowbirds wintering over and enjoying the warmer climate. It is very large park with over 800 campsites and a Lagoon in the middle with a large fountain and swimming area and a Tiki bar at the end. On the surface it looks pretty nice to be able to go sun bathing or swimming there and socialize with other campers. They also use this Lagoon as a day use center for the general public and charge them a fee. On the first really warm weekend in March the general public came by the truck loads. The KOA provides a DJ and music right in the lagoon. So now you have a bunch of young, rowdy, drinking people and a DJ playing music at an unbelievable loud level. These people did not care whom they bothered and by later in the day were obnoxiously loud and boisterous. Their vehicles were parked everywhere including campsites. No family would want their children to be associating with this kind of trouble makers. No senior citizen would want to go to the lagoon either. These people just took over and the campground management just counted their dollars. The Sheriffs cars were there to keep the peace. Why would you need continued police presence unless you expect trouble? This all goes on for 6 hours on Saturdays and Sundays all summer long. As a very frequent KOA customer with over 450,000 KOA value points, I was shocked. KOA better take another look at their franchise with Wekiva. KOA campgrounds are supposed to be family oriented, quiet and safe for their camping customers. In my opinion, Wekiva’s owner needs to decide if he wants this place to be a campground or a day care center for the socially misaligned. I will not be back unless some significant changes are made.

Picnic tables not on every camp site. Rude, drunk & obnoxious people at lagoon. Police were called at least once every day for disturbances. unable to let children go beyond eye site, due to sketchy people. lagoon had significant foul sulfur odor, unable to swim in lagoon due to drunks 7 smell. The men's restroom toilets throughout stay contained human waste build up in toilets and urine on seats. management does not control the drunks, nor seem to satisfy campers' concerns. Very POOR KOA We camped at Wekiva Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.
