Little Wekiva is part of the middle basin of the St. Johns River. The St. Johns River Water Management District place the headwater of the creek at Lake Lawne, about 5 miles (8.0 km) northwest of downtown Orlando. The Geographic Names Information System (GNIS), though, list the source of the river at Spring Lake, an 84-acre (34 ha) spring-fed lake in Altamonte Springs, Florida.
