Hillsborough River State Park, Thonotosassa, FL

Date of Stay:  Thursday January 17 - Wednesday January 23, 2013 (6 nights)

Rate:  $13/night (Gin’s disabled FL resident discount)

Website:  Hillsborough River State Park (FL)
   15402 US 301 North
   Thonotosassa, FL 33592

Description:  Old paved roads and dirt pads in need of updating.  Water and 30A in a wooded location close to Tampa.  One site was actually in the process of the updating but parking can be an issue for big rigs at times.  Some sites here do have 50A.  On the clear, spring fed Hillsborough River.  We were on site 33 right next to the canoe launch.  Other facilities in the park include a large swimming pool.  The canoe rental and launch near the store is nice.  Several nice nature trails with a suspension bridge over the river.  Dump station is a tight turn for big rigs.  Laundry at the bathhouses.

Activities:  Tricia and Dan met us here and me hung out with Nancy and Bill the first evening. They were leaving the next day.  T and D joined us for the Super RV Show in Tampa at the State Fairgrounds.  We all enjoyed some meals at the Crown Club at Lazy Days.  The river is a nice place to paddle but we had done that the previous year.  This trip was more about hanging with friends, shopping and strawberries from Plant City.

Trash and Recycle:  Dumpster and complete recycle bin at the exit of the cg loop.
