Outdoor Florida

This is a beautiful park close to the Tampa area. The campsites are separated into 2 areas. Most are small and open. On our visit, there were NO friendly people here. Some good hikes in the park. There are a few places to launch kayaks and I went from campground up to rapids and back down. Good paddle, lots of birds. Roads are paved in park and its a big circle so great for bike riding. There are large day use areas and a beautiful huge pool. Concessions were closed not sure if seasonal or covid? There is a neat suspension bridge and class 2 rapids along hike. Also a CCC museum (closed). Don't arrive before check in time because you have to wait in day use area until "it's time" for you to check in. Great park but not a great vibe.

Site 82

Beautiful site very close to bathrooms/showers and gorgeous views.

However, be super weary of rats and raccoons (possibly rabid). PLEASE DO NOT FEED THEM.

Who knew? Check it out!

Situated right off of rout 27, a very busy 3 lane state road and not too far from Disney Parks is Lake Louisa State Park. This wasn’t on our initial“A” list of parks to hit as it is a little too close to Orlando for our tastes and driving on I-4 with a trailer is sometimes less than enjoyable, but the Covid has changed some of that. The roads were surprisingly open for a weekend“in-season”. This was definitely an under promise and over deliver weekend in spite of the overcast and rainy weather. 

The campground is situated between two lakes, Dixie and Hammond. Lake Louisa is much larger but quite a distance from the campground. With three loops, the campground is quite large but didn’t seem as big as it was. The park also offers really nice cabins overlooking the lake on a hill as well as what they call“care free camp sites” which is a modern form of Glamping. I have a few pics attached. 

We are not theme park people but if I was this would be a great way to do it in either a cabin or tent and a day trip to the park. The campground also has Canoe/Kayak rentals and a small store with essentials including ice and firewood. 

The park is in Claremont which is a bedroom community to Orlando so the park sees quite a bit of“day trippers” from Tampa, Lakeland and Orlando as it should. The hiking is great, you can also horseback ride and the biking is really great too. The park has quite a bit of topography for a Florida State Park which tend to more or less flat so the cycling looked really good. Next time we’ll bring our road bikes in addition to my OneWheel and Canoe. 

All the sites looked pretty good. We were in the third loop in site #43 which was on the inside and next to the bath house but with enough buffer space you didn’t notice anybody at all. We commented that we should have brought laundry as it would have been really convenient.

Lots to do at this Florida State Park with an overall good vibe for sure. Don’t let the proximity to a rather large population fool you, it is great place to visit!

Beautiful views!

If you want a very clean park, lots to do like kayaking, sandy beaches, short island excursions with picturesque views, then this is the place! It’s very hard to get a reservation for a reason. It’s more expensive for a reason. Just wat h out for the raccoons as they will steal the food out of your hands if you let them, they are not scared of anything.

Well maintained sites, nice walking trails.

Tent camped at a site in loop one. Weather was nice, though we were warned it can get a bit muddy when it rains. Crowds were a bit higher on the trails during Saturday afternoon but Sunday morning was much more quiet and we saw lots of wildlife.

True farm experience

Great Park, awesome farm! Lots of cool animals.

Nice campground but RACOONS EVERYWHERE

We enjoyed our one night stay here outside of St. Petersburg! Secluded from town but not too far! The waterfront sites looked beautiful, especially if you have a kayak or paddle board to use! We stayed on the other side where the trail wraps all the way around for biking or walking. I do have to mention there seems to be a big critter problem here, raccoons kept us up for a good part of the night. I usually don’t mind wildlife but they seemed a bit rabid and aggressive, I was afraid to use the community garbages they had placed every 30 feet!

Another Great Florida State Park

We needed a campsite near Tampa FL for a few days to meet friends visiting the area from up north. Being a Floridian, we’ve experienced FL’s state parks and found them to offer privacy between sites. We weren’t disappointed with Hillsboro River State Park. Weather was cool in February that allowed for comfortable hiking and biking. Good Verizon signal to allow for plenty of streaming.

Favorite spot, but be weary of raccoons!

Fort De Soto will forever be one of my favorite camp grounds. The beautiful weather, the critters, the terrain…all of it. Expect a nice, calming breeze rustling through the trees whisking you off to sleep. It’s totally zen.

All sites are pretty spacious, but I highly recommend riverside if you can snag one (a tad bit pricier). Note that the dog friendly site has great spots, but a little less privacy.

The best part about this spot, hands down, is the people you’ll run into there. People from all over the US travel just to spend a few nights there, and you’ll find yourself making new acquaintances every time.

The camp store just a short walk away has all the necessities you could ask for (even a snack bar a full Icecream shop!) should you forget anything, but most things are a bit pricier as to be expected. Should you need anything, I highly suggest running down to the 711 just a few miles away from the campground. They have firewood year round, and it’s 7 dollars as compared to 10 dollars a bag at the camp shop.

CRITTER WARNING

Be mindful of the raccoons at this campground. They are absolutely everywhere (most likely due to people feeding them in the past) and will have their hands in your cooler the moment the sun goes down. I highly suggest keeping food in your vehicle.

Nice sites, crammed in wall to wall

Really beautiful area. Sites w/grills that can fit 2 cars. Foliage between sites so they are visually private but can get loud depending on your neighbors. Plenty of space for hammocks.

Camp store on site has firewood, bug spray, sunscreen, all the basics.

We tent camped in July and it was truly the hottest I've ever been. Character building.
