Weeki Wachee Springs State Park is always excited to welcome its guests and supporters to come out and enjoy the environment, history, and recreation we have to offer. With this being said, please remember to arrive early. We open our gates at 9am, 365 days a year. Due to heavy popularity, the park often reaches capacity on weekends, holidays, and during the summer season. We will close park entry until space for new guests has been made. Unfortunately, all guests who arrive after the park has reached capacity will be turned away and asked to either wait in line or return at a later time. This includes guests who are annual pass holders, have an existing ticket, and individuals affiliated with large parties that have already entered the park. We appreciate your patience and look forward to your visit.
