They have 3 paddle to sites on rock springs run and 1 on the wekiva river. All are pretty cool , big buck is the only one not directly on the water. All have bear box, fire pit and a bench or two. All but otter has hammock posts. Best is to launch upstream at kings landing and paddle down stream to them. When you take out keep going downstream to their pick up point and then you never paddle against current with gear. Also sucks to paddle up to them from the park because you have to pack out your own firewood since you can't burm ground fall. Very primitive and secluded.
Wekiwa was an amazing place to camp and spend our weekend. The park offers hiking, biking, day swimming, a food grill, a canoe/kayak launch and rental, plus tons of wildlife! The campground was quiet and the restrooms fairly clean. However, a weekday is best to visit the spring and river. On the weekend there were tons of people in the park. We had a wonderful 3 days here.
Beautiful Florida wildlife,birds especially in winter.Can be viewed by canoeing or hiking.Great food at the island.
Only thing on weekend the later you go the lonnger wait to get in park.
Spacious campground, plenty of wildlife, but not dog friendly to bring in the springs. Bathrooms were also clean n well kept. Will be back soon!
There is not a shower area - so use your RV - however, the area is very nice a quiet and you would not know that there is a city less than 5 minutes/miles away. The springs are great, but really, really cold. However, they have great canoeing and places to lay-out on the 'grassy- area'. Bring lots of blankets and towels to lay down and you do not even have to worry about them being taken
Has spacious sites, most have full hook-ups. Also you have access to the park springs. They also have a 50 percent FL Sr. Cit. discount!
Loved this camp site! Youth primitive camping site is very far back and private!
I stayed at the youth camp for a 10-day training seminar in January. The youth camp is secluded from the family campground, and the cabins are nicely spaced among beautiful pines. The cabins are clean and have comfortable mattresses--some cabins have a bathroom. The shower house is not heated but never ran out of hot water! The water here tastes and smells good, it does not have a sulphur smell.
Beautiful trails, paddling and swimming in the park. Many deer and waterfowl.
If you go on a weekend, make sure you go EARLY! Line of car starts around 9am and park will close at capacity.
There’s a wonderful river to canoe/kayak to see all sorts of animals and wildlife. It’s a wonderful adventure, I’ve seen deer and wild turkey on the shores as well as tutles, numerous birds and cranes, otters, and plenty of gators! (No worries, they are not aggressive, but do not approach wildlife without realizing their natural reaction will be to fight or flight). The camping is amazing and there are many options of site, cabins, tents, RV. There are also fun hiking trails and a gorgeous spring to cool off in the Florida heat. There’s a reason all of the locals love to go on the weekends!
