Wekiwa Springs State Park was not only our fist State Park camping experience, but also the location for one of the first videos we ever made.  Located in Apopka, FL, this park is only about a 30 minute drive to Orlando, but feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle.  Unfortunately, our motorcycle (a.k.a. Lucille) was at the shop, so we couldn’t get out for a ride, but we were able to get out and canoe on the Wekiva River and were super excited to come upon Wekiva Island! (they had beer!)  The campground part of the park is huge and offers plenty of spacious sites and full hook-ups.  The park also offers 16 miles of hiking trails and the pristine springs for swimming (if you are brave enough). Our first state park was such a great time and we look forward to going back.
