Our Primitive Campsite is located on 10 private acres on the beautiful Wekiva River in Rock Springs Preserve. The landscape is heavily wooded off the grid with a path to the Wekiva river as well as a natural small swimming hole that is fed by the river & a spring. The swimming hole also doubles as a small boat launch with a canal through the woods that leads to the Wekiva river. In another direction there is a Wildlife Observatory Deck/Treehouse on short path from the cabin towards the entrance of the property. Being close to Wekiva Falls and in Rocks Springs Preserve, There are miles of hiking and biking trails nearby. Further into the Preserve there is a stables where you can horseback ride through Historic Indian mounds and graveyards. You can also canoe or kayak to and from Wekiva state park and Wekiva island. This luscious isolated campground is a great place to enjoy all kinds of wildlife, fishing and is the perfect family or friends getaway that's only 30 minutes away from Orlando. This is a PRIMITIVE campsite meaning although this may look like a house with a fridge, microwave, electrical sockets etc. there is NO ELECTRIC, running water or bedding. Please do not message me saying "I see there is a fridge in the pictures is there electric?" The answer is NO. There are currently no pillows or blankets on site so campers need to bring their own bedding and sleeping mats. There is a outdoor standing stove, with a functioning starter you just need to provide the propane tank. There are a couple of places that you can stop at along the way to pick up propane, firewood etc. including a Publix and ace hardware, gas station etc. if you are coming off of i4. There is also a sign on the same road as the entrance by Wekiva falls with a phone number that you can purchase wood from. We are currently in the process of getting running water and then solar electricity etc. Considering the circumstances it would be extremely difficult to try to get to the cabin when the sun is down and I would not recommend it. It is deep in the woods with no lights or sense of direction, especially for people who are inexperienced in these woods and do not know where the cabin is located. Also the trees are thick in the woods and you should account for it to appear darker faster than usual especially in the winter. There is a well located behind the cabin, a hose, and a spring that is constantly pumping up fresh water through a pipe located by the swimming hole (Outdoor shower area coming soon as well).There is a working toilet inside the cabin it just needs water to be flushed! There is a canoe and kayak on site with paddles. The cabin is not on any marked roads so there is no address, the last road you will take before entering the woods is Wekiva River Road until you get to the gate to the forest. After I accept your request you should receive an automatic email/text with directions and updated codes to the gate and lockbox for the cabin within a couple of days prior to your arrival. There is a padlock with a number combination on the gate before you enter the woods. The code that you receive WILL be the correct code the lock is just a little sticky sometimes. Politely do not message me asking if the code is correct, I have not had a lot of people have trouble with it but I personally have before so just keep trying or maybe have someone else give it a try if you have trouble. Keep in mind this location is NOT the Hammock house the hammock house is on your left as you continue straight once inside. Campers please be aware of the terrain as the roads can be sandy or muddy and risk getting stuck if you go too slow or stop in a soft spot (especially around the Hammock House) and I will be unable to help as I am a college student away at University most of the time. I have never had someone call me and say they have gotten stuck but my father and I got stuck once in the sand by the hammock house after stopping to look at an animal. I have had people message me asking if they should rent a truck but your own vehicle should be fine as long as you follow the instructions. As far as privacy goes there is one other private property located next to ours that has a do not enter sign you will see (to the left of our entrance) but as I mentioned previously the cabin is completely secluded and we have yet to see or hear anything from that direction or been onto the neighboring property. If you have any special requests for me to have something set up for your arrival, whatever it may be message me and maybe we can make something happen!

Canoe cabin trip!
Awesome private stay!! Beautiful woodland. Rugged but had everything we needed. Come ready to camp and feel upgraded living :) canoe was perfect for incredible river paddle. Would be great for intimiate couples or lots of friends.
Perfect isolation on wekiva
My family and I had a great time staying here! It is super isolated, so it was nice to let our dogs run off leash. I enjoyed the primitive aspect, plus the location is really ideal. Hope to return soon!
Exactly as advertised
It was exactly as advertised, super cute and location location location! Now even though it is a cabin it is still roughing it. The platforms for our air mattress was a great touch. The solar lights worked really well. Will definitely be back!
Property exceeded my expectations. So gorgeous and secluded. Should have booked more time! Will certainly be back soon! The drive out there is a little nerve wrecking but not too bad in our Kia car. Brought the dogs and they had a blast. So relaxing and leaving feeling grateful.
Zenfully beautiful river paradise !
Beautiful and mystical deep woods 🌲 river paradise ☀️is the best way to describe this Hipcamp. Lots to see from the Wekiva river to walking the property and seeing all it’s beauty. Some stargazing at night. Meditation and reflection. It’s also amazingly secluded and private. Thanks, Angelina for sharing this wonderful property on Hipcamp!
It was horrible, im not gonna lie. Looks like a cabin from 1970. Everything is old and broke. The river is literally black, and if u want to swim u have to use the kayak for 3 miles!!! Im really disappointed because the pictures shows something different! Don’t waste your time, gas, and money!
