About: Located at the headwaters of the Wekiva River, the beautiful vistas within this park offer a glimpse of what Central Florida looked like when Timucuan Indians fished and hunted these lands. Just one hour from most central Florida attractions, Wekiwa Springs offers visitors the opportunity to relax in a natural setting, enjoy a picnic, or take a swim in the cool spring. Canoeists and kayakers can paddle along the Wekiva River and Rock Springs Run. Thirteen miles of trails provide opportunities for hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding. Options for camping include a full facility campground and primitive camping areas. Canoe and kayak rentals are available. For information about rentals, call (407) 884 4311.

Slopes of gently rolling hills supporting longleaf pine among other specialty plants is the Sandhill habitat where the 60 spacious campsites are located. Each wooded site has water and electrical hook-up, a fire ring with grill and a picnic table. ADA-accessible camp sites can be requested at the time of reservation. Two ADA accessible restrooms with showers are located in the camping area. A dump station is located at the campground. Firewood is available at the Ranger Station. Well behaved pets are allowed in the campground.

Wekiwa Springs State Park offers the Bedtime Story Camper Lending Library of picture books for campers aged four to nine. Ask at the Ranger Station for more information.
