Located in central Florida, at the south prong of the Alafia River, is the small community of Lithia, Florida. Less than an hour from Sarasota, Zephyrhills, and Tampa, Lithia is home to Alafia River State Park.

Getting Outdoors

Legend has it there are small treasures hidden in Alafia River State Park. Lucky for you, the treasure map is already in your pocket! This park is equipped for geocaching, which uses a virtual map connected to your GPS to show you hidden prizes that have been placed there by previous geo-seekers. This is a great way for Alafia River State Park campers to explore the wilderness and participate in an interactive game that gets you outdoors. Find previously hidden treasures or plant one of your own.

RV campers in Alafia River State Park have over 20 miles of hiking trails to roam. Strap on your hiking boots and traverse these lands that were once an old phosphate mine that has been reclaimed by the earth since its abandonment. Because of the rugged, hilly terrain, these pathways are also great for mountain biking. Maintained by the Alafia Trail Crew, these trails are considered to be some of the best mountain biking in the state. All of the trails are also horse-friendly. There's a 12-horse barn available to Alafia River State Park campers at no charge, but is booked on a first-come-first-served basis.

If there's an angler among your group, this park has plenty of lakes and river access that's perfect for fishing. While catfish and bluegill are readily catchable, the park asks that anglers release all largemouth bass back into the water.
