Hillsborough River camping

Hi. Is there a place that would rent canoes for an overnight camping trip to the Hillsborough river in Florida? Also has anyone gone fossiling at this river? Thanks.

4 trips

The Peace is reputed as having fossils …prob bipods

The Santa Fe HAD fossils and if you doahno the story look it up…

I haven’t canoed out on the Myakka but hiked there…prob the best wildlife trip

The Santa Fe is prob the best canoe trip with paddling up into Oleno SP then down the Suwanee to the pick up pt.

The Santa outpost would prob cooperate on a multi day trip.

I dont think you can camp
on the river other than at the designated campground or the primitive campground

The lots are patrolled and you might lose a car if you just leave on in an access point


Nice river though we have only done day trips.

call Russell at Sweetwater Kayak
727-570-4844. Also highly recommend the Hillsborough State Park.

how far east
beyond the SP can a trip begin ?

I was thru on 301 in the '50’s. Very green, millions of wading birds…


The Myakka and Peace are on the borderlands to tropical Florida, Hillsborough as the name on the border to the rolling hills of Brooksville with the Santa Fe on the Georgia side.

DK clearly you just want to spout off
that question was answered in my link

of course your link was encompassing erudite and complete.

If you would ignore this jerk
like a lot of the long time posters do, he might crawl back into the hole he came out of, but every time you reply to his nonsense you just encourage him.

It would be nice to see P-net back the way it used to be with out him and a few others that feel they have to come up with an answer for every single post.


more erudition !
I live there !

wanna discuss the NM bus thieves at UG ?

as internet informational conversationalists, some of you are not up to speed, more comfortable in a Bundt meeting ?
