“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

“Nice CCC Park”

Reviewed Mar 06, 2018

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. Great hiking trails, Hillsborough River access for canoes and kayaks, suspension bridge over the river, lots of picnic sites, and older (closed) pool... more

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

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

Reviewed Apr 19, 2017

This was another excellent Florida state park with nice sites and plenty of trails. Be warned that the campsites here are not all created equal. Some are squished together with no privacy while others are large with wooded views. In general, the sites on the outside of the camping loops are best, with the one's near the river being the... more

“Another excellent Florida State Park campground! First-rate trail system with a very cool suspension bridge and opportunities for kayaking. ”

Reviewed Dec 19, 2016

We had only one night at Hillsborough State Park, but we could easily have spent several days exploring the park and nearby trails. Very friendly, helpful staff. The Hillsborough River runs through the park and boasts Florida’s only class 2 rapids. We didn’t get a chance to kayak, but did enjoy the nature trails and the suspension brid... more

Our second stay at this historic park that is close to Tampa, but not too close. The park is heavily wooded, and mostly tranquil during the week. It's possible to have lots of open spots around you. Typical of state parks, on the weekends it can be bustling. The park hosts several weekend ranger programs, and the camping loops can ... more
