Water Park

Do you love the water? We do too! That’s why Wekiva Falls Resort delivers an unmatched pool and river experience. The Oval is so impressive that it acts as a water attraction all on its own. With residents purchasing a day-pass just for the chance to visit. Wekiva Falls has embraced our water park fans and created an experience that your family is sure to love.

Our natural sulfur spring is warm and features two water slides as well as a DJ on the weekends! Stop by our marina for canoe and kayak rentals in the Orlando area. We offer 2 & 3 person canoes and single person kayaks. Nature and Adventure are a unique combination here at The Falls!

Your whole family can experience a variety of water fun. Enjoy the pool, kiddie areas, twin water slides, bring blow-ups to float on, or take a lazy day out on the river. Make your water park trip a vacation. Many come for the weekend for camping, fishing, arts and crafts, s’mores and so much more! Families never forget watching their little ones spend the day playing in the waters and splashing beneath our 360-degree waterfall.

And no summer day would be complete without a dip in our 72-degree natural spring. The minerals in the water feel just incredible against your skin.

Summer Activities

Everyone wants to go on the summer family vacation of their dreams. Whether it’s you and your partner, with your kids in tow, or if you’re joining us with additional friends and family on the road. Finding the right summer destination that is both family-friendly and affordable, isn’t always as easy it should be. You want a destination that is quiet and comfortable with plenty of activities that everyone can take part in during any downtime. With some much to do during the day, you want to come back to the comfort of your RV and relax for the rest of the evening.

That’s what draws thousands of guests in from every corner of the country for a summer at Wekiva Falls.

Taking a summer RV road trip is a dream for many. Who wouldn’t love to hit the open road, sleep in new campsites and explore the country? It can’t get much better! If it’s your first time RV camping, getting to your destination is half of the fun, but what will you do after you park at the campsite? That’s where the rest of your adventure begins!

Weliva Falls offers the perfect summer getaway for friends and family.

Why do people love spending their summer days and weeks at Wekiva Falls?

You can post up at one of over 40 nearby Tiki Tables around the oval to enjoy a lunch with friends and family.

These picnic areas are ideal for people who want to share a meal in comfort while enjoying the beautiful outdoors. They are available first come, first serve so don’t wait! And if you want to bring additional seating, a grill, or canopy tents to the canal area, please feel free to!
