The 2,833 hectare (7,000 acre) Wekiwa Springs State Park offers a plethora of outdoor activities. The most popular is the park's spring, which supplies the Wekiva River with 159 million liters (42 million gallons) of water each day and flows into a warm, natural swimming pool of varying depth. Explore the network of trails via foot, bike, or horseback, or rent a canoe from the nature center on site. Have a picnic or a barbeque at one of picnic areas, complete with charcoal grills. If you want to extend your stay, pitch your tent or bring in your recreational vehicle for a night of camping at one of the many campsites, ranging from primitive to modern with amenities.
