Hillsborough River State park has 112 campsites in three "loops." Each campsite includes water, electric, a picnic table and grill. Modern facilities in each loop include restrooms, showers and laundry. While most of the campsites seem rather close, there are a few that offer more space and some privacy. The paved roads throughout the campground make for easy access and enjoyable walking or biking.

Of course, all the park activities and facilities are open to campers. Hiking, biking along the nature trails, as well as swimming, canoeing, kayaking and fishing.

A dump station is located within the campground and pets are allowed, but campers must follow pet rules. The campground and its facilities are ADA accessible.

Hillsborough River State Park is located about nine miles north of Tampa and six miles south of Zephyrhills on US Highway 301. Reservations for campsites may be made up to 11 months in advance by calling 1-813-987-6771 or booking online at ReserveAmerica.com.
