Camping by Wekiva River

Going camping is a great way to take a break from work and enjoy the fresh air with your family. Whether it is your first time camping or your twentieth time there are always fun new things to try or a chance to get better at the outdoor activities you love to do. When deciding where you want to go camping you want to make sure the site has a variety of activities available. Here are a few things camping by the Wekiva River has to offer.


Nothing is more refreshing than swimming in natural spring water. Wekiva River is attached to an easily accessible spring in Wekiva Falls. It is bigger than the others, and because it is privately owned, it will have fewer people. Wekiva Fall’s spring has water entering through a waterfall with two water slides beside it. A dip in the spring is a great way to cool off on a hot day and is a fun thing to do with your kids. If you need a break from the water, you can lay out on their beach and work on your tan.


Wekiva has many streams that connect to one another and are perfect for someone who wants to go on an adventure. Wekiva Falls RV Resort has canoes and kayaks you can rent if you do not have your own. The canoes have three-seater and two-seater options but if you are looking to paddle alone you can get a single person kayak. If you want to go with your kids don’t worry, the river moves slowly by the RV Resort. Paddle up and down the stream or find a place to stop and go fishing. If you are above the age of 16 and below 65 you will need a fishing license and do not forget to bring your bait and tackle box.


If you are looking for something out of the water to do, you can find a trail at your site to go walking or biking. Wekiva Falls RV Resort has over three miles of paved roads throughout the park to enjoy.

Whether you want to stay on site or find a trail nearby, walking or biking is a great way to get some exercise while enjoying the beautiful sites around you. Going for a walk around your site will give you a chance to see what the campsite has to offer and what kind of fun activities are around.


Whether you want to go rustic in tents or take it easy in an RV, it is up to you. Tent camping is perfect if you want to gather around the campfire with your family and roast smores. There are options to consider when going tent camping. You can go more primitive and get a site further away or you can have a site with electric. Although RV camping is less connected with nature, it is a great way to disconnect from the world and live a little more minimalistic for a couple of days.
