Florida sure is an exciting place that can’t seem to stay out of the spotlight, whether for all kinds of reasons. This popular getaway location is riddled with a warm climate oasis, making it perfect for some state park RV camping. One such park lies along the 40-mile long Little Manatee River that runs from Fort Lonesome to Tampa Bay. Set within 2416 acres of Wimauma, Little Manatee River State Park offers pristine camping when you rent an RV in Hillsborough County.

This area of Florida has seen eras-worth of people, from Native Americans and cowboys to the pioneers who built up the area to the modern-day entrepreneurs. At the heart of the success flows the Little Manatee River. To preserve the quality of the river and its rightful place in Hillsborough County history, the state park was erected for the public to enjoy and the river inducted into the Cockroach Bay Aquatic Preserve. RV camping at Little Manatee River State Park will be the highlight of the season.

Getting Outdoors

Little Manatee River State Park has set up the Sand Pine Trail. This multi-use trail system is a stacked loop system for hikers and bikers alike. The Sand Pine Trails extend 6.5 miles through the 11 natural communities found within the park. For a flatter biking surface, bikes are permitted along the three-mile paved road that leads campers into the park.

There are other hiking spots to discover locally in Wimauma. They’ll guide you along the rugged shoreline of the Little Manatee River; giving you a true sense of flora and fauna hiding away.

The freshwater river twists and turns making for a fun paddling route whether in a kayak or canoe (rentals are available in the park) or on a standup paddleboard. Utilize the cool breeze coming off the river and string up a hammock in some nearby trees for a lazy afternoon lounging with a book.

With well maintained, healthy rivers comes a nice array of fish species. Fishing is allowed, and you’ll mostly find a selection of fresh and brackish water species. Many of the best fishing spots along the river are only accessible by foot or bike. Be sure to check out the fishing regulations to ensure you’re licensed appropriately before casting your line.
