Wekiwa Springs State Park
Embark on a canoe or kayak adventure, just minutes from the Orlando area, where you can explore the heart of the breathtaking Wekiva River, one of Florida's only Federally and State designated wild and scenic Rivers. Wekiwa Springs State Park Nature Adventures offers several trips which will assist you in fulfilling your fantasy River Adventure.
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 wildlife and birdwatching, have 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.
This is a very popular park on weekends. To ensure entrance into the park, we recommend arriving early, otherwise, the parking area may be full. 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.
