Since one of the biggest reasons people rent RVs in Tampa is to spend more time outside, it makes sense to find an RV campground that enhances your camping experience when you aren't out exploring the area.
Hillsborough River State Park is approximately 30 miles from Tampa and the place to stay if you want to spend time at the campground. Here, campers can bike, fish, paddle, and swim. The park is also home to Fort Foster State Historic Site, a replica of the location where soldiers loaded up on field supplies and defended the Hillsborough River bridge crossing during the Second Seminole War. The campsites at Hillsborough River State Park accommodate campers and motorhomes smaller than 50 feet in length. Each space has water, electricity, a fire ring, and a picnic table. Registered campers have access to the dump station and on-site laundry facilities.
