About This Campground

State Park

Just minutes from downtown Tampa, this Hillsborough River State Park Camping offers a refuge from city life with its seven miles of nature trails and ample places to cool off in the water.

Except for occasional reenactments, the cannon and guns are now silent at Fort Foster. No longer do…

We love it here. Great place to just get away from the everyday bs. Very peaceful and the trails are nice. The campsite is very clean and there are a lot sized for big rigs

Great Hiking

This was one of our favorite campgrounds. The park was so lush and green it felt like a jungle safari. There are so many alligators just hanging around near the water so watch out while hiking! There are so many great hiking trails and places to explore in this park.

Laundry on site at the bath…

  • bring quarters, no change machines here

Super relaxing! Really easy to find your campsite and they are decent sized as well. Bathrooms are all relatively close but a little outdated. Great for nature walking and out dog had a great time!
