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. 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. The park offers full-facility camping and a youth/group tent campground. It is located about 20 miles north of Tampa.
