Wekiwa Springs State Park,Florida

Wekiwa Springs is a crystal clear second-magnitude spring that is joined within a half-mile by the smaller run from Rock Springs to form the headwaters of the 17-mile-long Wekiva River, a tributary of the St. Johns River. The main vent, a 35-foot-long fissure in exposed limestone at a depth of 14 feet, produces an impressive boil. A secondary vent is about 2 feet high and 15 feet wide. A comfortable 72 degrees year round. The combined average discharge from these 2 boils is approximately 45 million gallons per day. (204574050 l (liter) per day. A very beautiful spring only minutes away from Orlando Florida. Saw a few interesting things around the springs, a live Mermaid, and a real live Vampire.

We camped here for four days, saw lots of deer and loved it, but warning. It’s a little tight for some of the bigger rigs, so be careful.
