Welaka Lodge & Resort
1001 Front Street
Welaka, FL 32193
As fish camps go, this fish camp, lodge and RV park is a Ritz Carlton. You also have to love a place whose home page quotes Florida literary icon Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings:
If I could have, to hold forever, one brief place and time of beauty, I think I might choose the night on that high lonely bank above the St. Johns river.
Welaka is about 40 miles southwest of St Augustine, and about the same distance northwest of Daytona Beach. It is close enough for comfortable day trips, but far enough away from the maddening crowds.
This resort caters to fishing enthusiasts and their families, and it is on a magnificent stretch of the majestic St Johns River in the village of Welaka. The resort boasts a swimming pool and a variety of cottages of varying sizes perfect for a couples getaway or a larger family. Most of the cottages are fully equipped with kitchens and are set up so you can live there for long periods of time.
You may just want to do that once youʹve tried this place with its great views of the largest river in Florida.
