We have stayed 3 times at Wekiwa State Park, in our RV. It is just a fantastic adventure. The cool spring fed swimming basin is perfect for hoy summer days. Do not pass it up, if you have a chance to go

During the hot summer weekends and holidays plan to come very early. The lobe starts forming around 7:30am to get in and will fill up quickly for the day! Great place to spend the day with family and friends..

Great to escape city and theme parks for a day. Lovely springs for swimming and canoeing. Great walking trails up to smaller lake nearby - superb. No need for boots - trainers are fine

My family and friends visited this spot today and we had fun! The water is a little chilly but not to where you can't enjoy it especially since it was over 90 degrees. The depth of the water in most places was up to my...More

Prudence, I don't know for sure but I would think tubing is okay. I doubt there is a renatl place nearby. Try calling the park. I'm sure they could tell you.
