We spent a lovely few days at Wekiwa Springs State Park.
This Park is just 16 miles from downtown Orlando but it feels like 100 miles away…until you drive out of the gate and get into the traffic!
It is about one mile from the entrance to the campground. There are 60 campsites in a pine forest setting. The sites are sand based but quite spacious.
This park has beautiful emerald springs that feed the Wekiwa River.
Wekiwa Springs state park has over 25 miles of trails that go by tropical hammocks and sand grasslands. There are beautiful flowers and fauna.
Wekiwa Springs is set up very nicely for the equestrian crowd. There is a corral for the horses at the entrance to the trail head. There are several primitive camp areas for riders.
Bikers can enjoy the equestrian trails as well as the bike trail.
We saw lots of deer while in the park.
One morning we went to Sand Lake and saw 2 coyotes!
We didn’t realize there were two until the first one fled into the grasses and then the second one ran across.
We enjoyed this park alot. We spent some time visiting with Traci and Loretta’s friend Sue. One evening we had a nice cookout and shared stories and s’mores! Just a note…. try s’mores with the thin Reese’s peanut butter cups …. a delicious twist on an old favorite!
