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. Concession hours of operation are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. This concession provides breakfast & lunch, camping & picnic supplies, and a variety of memorable souvenirs.

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.

How many wants to say great! The camp signs have water and power. Their is an acre size clean water swimming pool and hot water showers. Cost $4 to get into the pool, bring your own chairs. They charge to rent them. If your an early bird the park offers free morning kayaking trips on the river. I'm good no to check out the tour of the old fort. I expect great things.
