As with each of our camping trips, my husband and I take off and explore the park for our own mini-vacation. I have to say that the Hillsborough River State Park has a lot of fabulous things to see and do, including an amazing swimming pool (not seen very often at State Parks).
Hands down, the hiking trail along the river was best part for us. We brought the constant watch dog Dude so we could tire him out and the timid Huggie to expose him to a new adventure. It was almost a 2 mile hike and I don’t know who was more pooped at the end – the dogs or the humans!
