Getting Outdoors

There's a diverse range of experiences on offer in Colt Creek State Park, so campers are spoiled for choice when planning each day's activities. However, one of the main attractions that draws visitors to this pretty region of central Florida is the wildlife watching.

As the park is located within the Green Swamp Wilderness Area, it's home to all manner of creatures great and small. Alligators, bobcats, white-tailed deer, fox squirrels, and more all live in and around the park. If you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of some of them.

Birding is also popular in the park. The bald eagle, eastern bluebird, and black-bellied whistling duck are just a few of the 150 species that have been identified in the park, which now finds itself on the Great Florida Birding Trail. Remember to pack your binoculars when loading up your campervan rental!

Of course, the best way to maximize your chances of wildlife encounters is to set out on a hiking trail. Colt Creek State Park boasts a 12-mile trail network that winds through hardwood hammocks, wetlands, and pine flatwoods. The quarter-mile Mac Lake Nature Trail offers an excellent taster for those wanting to learn a little more about their natural surroundings, while the ten-mile Flatwoods Trail offers something much more challenging.

The other main attraction that draws campers to Colt Creek State Park from far and wide is the chance to go fishing. There are three lakes open to fishing in the park — Mac Lake, the most popular of them all, has its own fishing dock.

The lakes vary in size from two to 25 acres, and they give anglers the chance to target bluegill, largemouth bass, bream, and more. However, no gas motors are allowed on the lakes, so fishing is done from kayaks, canoes, and small jon boats. You'll also need to make sure you have an appropriate fishing license and comply with all park fishing regulations.

Camping at Colt Creek State Park

If you want to go camping in Colt Creek State Park, you'll need to book an RV in Polk County and then find yourself a spot in the park's spacious campground.

Tucked away amid the pine flatwoods, the campground has 27 RV campsites and six tent-only sites. All sites are pet-friendly and boast 30- and 50-amp electrical hookups.

Happily, there's a decent amount of space between each site so that you don't feel like you're right on top of your neighbors. Some larger sites are capable of accommodating RVs of up to 70 feet, while two sites in the campground are also designed to be accessible to people with disabilities. The bathhouse is also accessible, clean, and offers flush toilets and showers.

Finally, a dump station is provided near the campground entrance when you need to dispose of waste safely. An equestrian campground is also available within the park, while two primitive campgrounds (accessible only by foot, mountain bike, or horseback) cater to tent campers.

Exploring the Area

There's a lot to love about Colt Creek State Park, so you'll no doubt want to take the time to experience the best the park has to offer. But when you're ready to take your rental RV on the road once again, you'll find lots of other great destinations within easy reach.

For example, if you're an animal or nature lover, you might want to check out Giraffe Ranch in nearby Dade City or explore the Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve. If you'd rather treat the family with a trip to an amusement park or two, head to Kissimmee to visit Walt Disney World Resort and Fun Spot America.

Of course, if you're keen to head for the big city, Tampa is also just a 45-minute drive to the southwest. While you're there, make sure you visit all the rare and exotic creatures at ZooTampa at Lowry Park.

When you rent a camper near Colt Creek State Park, you open yourself up to a whole world of travel opportunities, and the adventures and experiences you choose to enjoy are entirely up to you.
