Alafia River State Park sits atop a reclaimed phosphate mine with some of the most radical elevation changes in the state. This makes it a hot spot for mountain bikers, who traverse the scenic and challenging International Mountain Bike Association trails. Equestrians and hikers can explore 20 miles of hilly trails through forests and flatwoods, stopping to relax and admire one of the park’s pristine lakes and engage in wildlife viewing, or geocaching. Canoeing and fishing opportunities are available along the South Prong of the Alafia River, Three Fingers Lake, and other lakes scattered throughout the park. The park also offers picnic pavilions, a playground, a full-facility campground and a full-service bike shop. Scouts, schools, and other groups, may request educational programs from our knowledgeable and friendly staff by contacting the ranger station at 813-672-5320.
