Opened in 1938, Hillsborough River State Park is one of Florida's first state parks; this original CCC Park is divided by the swiftly flowing Hillsborough River with a set of Class II rapids. The river provides opportunities for fishing, canoeing, and kayaking; a canoe/kayak launch is available at parking lot #4. Some of our amenities are the Spirit of the Woods Caf which is open 9am-5pm seven days a week. This concession provides breakfast and lunch daily from 9am-4pm, camping & picnic supplies, and a variety of memorable souvenirs. Canoes and bikes can be rented from 9am-3pm and all rental equipment must be returned by 4pm. Hikers can walk over seven miles of nature trials: Rapids Trail, Baynard Trail, a sub-section of the Florida Trail and the Wetlands Restoration Trail. Note: Wetlands Restoration accommodates both bicyclists and hikers only. When the weather calls for it, visitors can enjoy a refreshing swim in the park's ADA accessible swimming pool. Please contact the park for swimming pool informational updates at (813) 987-6771.) The park offers full-facility camping and a youth/group tent campground. A primitive campsite is available via foot trail; reservations are always recommended.
