Wekiwa Springs State Park

WekiwaSpringsSP04192014 (3)The campground has just recently gone through some renovations. They were only available for walk-in camping for over a year but are now back on the online reservation system with 37 of the 60 campsites now having on-site sewers. We stayed there during the Easter weekend so the place was packed even though the weather was on-and-off gloomy. Some of our family members visited us for the day on Easter Sunday but it was too cool to jump into the springs. We did see quite a few brave souls in the water, canoeing, kayaking and lounging on the grass and picnic areas. The campgrounds are shady with not much privacy. The spaces are fairly decent with water and electric but we ended up on a site with no sewer connection. We just love the bathhouse. The place was clean, spacious and had plenty of hot water with great water pressure. Just the thing to warm you up after a day dipping into the cool springs. Sadly, we couldn’t get any TV reception but we did get between 4 and 5 bars on our cellphone. No laundry facilities.

The park is pretty large with the campground area, the swimming, picnic and playground area and a separate area to sit by a lake with trails all around. They even have a separate parking area for equestrian use. We tried to go see the group camping/primitive camping area but it has a locked gate and can only be accessed by those using it. To get to the swimming area you will have to walk up and down hills but they have nice sidewalks and boardwalks. The spring is surrounded by a cement retaining wall. It was very blue water with lots of brave souls swimming around. They have a concession house where you can get snacks and supplies.
