The Wild Wekiva River

The Wekiva River is a National Wild and Scenic River located in Seminole County,  Florida. It and Rock Springs Run make up the Wekiva Paddling trail. We put in at Katies’s Landing located 262 Wekiva Park Dr. Sanford, Fl. Katie’s offers ample parking, an easy launch, clean restrooms, picnic tables and lots of shade. There is a daily fee of $3.00 per vehicle.

One of the first things you will notice is how pristine the river and surrounding forests are. Though there is some development around the river, the wilderness and water seem untouched. It is a great place to get back to nature and observe wildlife.
