“Relaxing ”

Reviewed Apr 06, 2019

Overall Rating

I have been to this park on several occasions and always enjoy the stay as a tent camper. It encourages the atmosphere of relaxing in nature. The main reason I write this review is because I need to acknowledge the help from Ranger Traxler who helped me get my car started after refusing regular jump starts when it was time for me to le... more

“ Beautiful and quiet ”

Reviewed Mar 11, 2019

Overall Rating

I stayed here in my 21-foot trailer in site # 90 and can’t wait to come back. This park fills up for several months out so if you are flexible and can do an occasional few weeknights, do it! Plenty of room to back into your site and I should know since this was my very first time backing into one! The loop that I stayed in is called ... more

Very beautiful, well-maintained. We quickly found the unofficial trail on the wrong side of the River (next to the campground) where we saw a gator!

“...a bit wet and muddy...”

Reviewed Jan 29, 2019

Overall Rating

Three inches of rain the day and night before our arrival left our campsite a bit wet and muddy, but upon arrival the Ollie and Tacoma had no trouble backing in. Unfortunately, big rigs flanked our not-at-all-private campsite #58 which, by design, was also at the furthest point away from the restrooms. It appears many trees through th... more

“Great experience”

Reviewed Oct 10, 2018

This is one of the best state parks to camp in. 30 minutes to Tampa, so it can be hard to book sometimes. It features a pool and canoes to rent. There are alligators one the river. I only saw one this trip.I went in still hot early October, but the campground is covered with enough oaks, I did not notice the heat. Highly recomme... more

“Beautiful and Well Maintained”

Reviewed Sep 09, 2018

Overall Rating

This park is beautiful. It’s the rainy season, so there are many sites that are flooded. It is essential that you call the ranger station to make sure the site you have reserved is not wet. If you don’t, they’ll most likely call you and and suggest a different site. They are incredibly accommodating. The campground hosts are attentive ... more

Two nights are never enough at Hillsborough River state park. Due to storm damage, one bridge across the river was closed. Many trails, long and short. Watch for gators, turtles, birds. Playgrounds, ranger talks are fun for all. Some sites are short for longer rigs. Watch for tree limbs. Plenty of privacy between most sites. Site 99 wa... more

This is the oldest Florida state park in their system and was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps after WW I. They have maintained it well and kept the CCC construction up-to-date.

“A beautiful older park that can be a bit challenging for larger rigs.”

Reviewed Jan 15, 2018

Entering this heavily wooded state park feels like you've gone back in time. The park itself is quite large, and after entering it takes a while to get to the campground. The park and campground roads are narrow heavily wooded and we brushed quite a few low branches with our motorhome. Inside the campground there are some tight turns t... more
