Wekiva: Wonders to wander

Published November 08, 2007
The Wekiva River basin is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise.

The river, its tributaries and surrounding lands offer clear water for paddling and fishing, springs for swimming and tubing, riverfront campgrounds and trails for hiking, horseback riding and off-road cycling - all about 30 miles north of Disney World.

Wekiwa Springs State Park: The park near Apopka has a spring-fed swimming hole, 60-site campground, primitive camping, a 13-mile hiking trail, canoe rentals, horse trails, off-road bike trails and a playground. For campground reservations, call (800) 326-3521. For information on primitive canoe camping along the Wekiva River, call (407) 884-2009. Entrance to the park is $5 per car.
