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. The concession provides canoe, bike and golf cart rentals, breakfast and lunch menus, camping and picnic supplies, and a variety of memorable souvenirs.
Don't miss our Ranger led tours of Historic Fort Foster Site every Saturday @ 2pm & 4pm and on Sunday @ 11am for $2.00 per person.
Hikers can walk over seven miles of nature trials and our Wetlands Restoration accommodates both bicyclists and hikers. When the weather calls for it, visitors can enjoy a refreshing swim in the park's ADA accessible swimming pool. (Swimming pool hours of operation are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm).
