Know Before You Go
During periods of high visitation, visitors may experience long lines to enter Wekiwa Springs State Park. The park frequently reaches capacity and may temporarily close. Closures occur intermittently and may last several hours. Campers with reservations will be admitted to the park when it is closed, but pedestrians and bicyclists will not be allowed to enter until the park reopens. Thank you.
Welcome to Wekiwa Springs State Park
With emerald springs feeding the Wekiwa River and lush tropical hammocks, this unique park just minutes from downtown Orlando is perfect for observing abundant wildlife or cooling off on a summer day.
Miles of trails beg to be explored on foot, bike or horseback, and canoes and kayaks are available on-site. It’s easy to see why visitors have been flocking to beautiful Wekiwa Springs since the mid-19th century.
Wekiwa Springs has a special place in the hearts of those lucky folks who have grown up nearby, spending weekends exploring the spring vent and paddling canoes past the purple blooms of pickerelweed.
The azure waters of Wekiwa Springs have made it Orange County’s longest-running tourist attraction. From the dense, almost tropical hammocks near where the springs feed into the Wekiva River to the scenic sandhill uplands, the park offers ample opportunities to see many kinds of animals.
