A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Scott Spaulding

Greetings Everyone:

Exciting things are happening at the park!

Soon the park will have bike rentals available at the ranger station in addition to canoes and kayaks that we already rent. We are also getting ready to begin construction of our very first playground including swings, slides and a "discovery cave". The playground was funded by our Citizen Support Organization, The Friends of Lake Louisa State Park (“Friends”). Thanks go out to all of you that supported this effort!

Speaking of the “Friends” their 4th Friday speaker’s series for the month of June will be a tram tour. The tour will begin promptly at 7pm and will take visitors on an “off road” tour of the parks back country. Along the way a Park Ranger will tell you all about the parks natural and cultural history. So plan on joining us on June 27th at 7:00pm. Space is limited for this event, so please RSVP to (352) 394-3969.

If you are a member of our Citizen Support Organization the "Friends of Lake Louisa State Park" keep in mind that in addition to getting a free visit once a month you also get a free one-time day long canoe or tandem kayak rental. Not a member yet? Visit the "Friends" website by clicking the link below or by navigating to llsp.org. Once there click on the “become a member” tab. You can also call or visit the Ranger Station for more information.

Join us daily for trail use, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, picnicking, nature study, camping and good old rest and relaxation.

We hope to see you out at the park real soon!
