  • Always enjoy this state park. Love the rapids on the river, the calmness of the scenery and the chance to see native plants and animals. Suspension bridge is always nice, too  more »
  • Park ranger was pleasant and took the time to tell us about the different trails. The suspension bridge makes some people nervous, but there is another bridge to reach the trails.  more »

  • We loved this park. RV sites are great, lots of shade and some sun. We recently purchased bicycles to get around and the trails for bicycles were plentiful. Beautiful scenery. Quiet campground. We will definitely come back here!
  • I loved this park. Quite a few miles of trails. The only reason I’m giving this place four stars is because there was a crackhead lady running the admission office and she would not except my state park pass for some incoherent reason. But I did not let a few bucks ruin it for me. We had a great time! And if it’s crowded you can walk a mile down the longer trails and there will be a considerably less amount of people.
  • This is a beautiful park with lots of great hiking. We spotted all sorts of wildlife, including gators. Camping was great and included a fun Friday evening tour by a park ranger. I would have given a 5 star rating except the cafe and rental people were super rude.
  • We always enjoy coming to Hillsborough River State Park. Very peaceful and well maintained. Our favorite time to come is for their Halloween event. Great time to camp here too. The park offers hay rides through the camp ground and campers decorate their lots and hand out candy, if they are so inclined. Fun!
  • Great place to see the nature. Go early and get a canoe. During the summer it can be too hot go during winter or early spring, or late fall
