Three Rivers State Park

 Activities at Three Rivers State Park

Bicycling

Bicycling

There are over 7 miles of trails and paved roads in the park for bicyclists to enjoy (semi-rough terrain with moderate elevation changes).

Boat Ramp

Boat Ramp

There are two small boat ramps within the park, suitable for smaller watercraft. One ramp is located within the campground, for use by registered campers only. The other ramp is located close to the picnic area, for general use by park visitors. There are also two county-maintained boat ramps that will accommodate larger craft; one of these ramps is found on the eastern boundary of the park, the other is found on the western boundary of the park.

Boating

Boating

Three Rivers State Park borders on scenic Lake Seminole. The lake tends to be shallow in many areas, with considerable aquatic vegetation. Old tree stumps also are found throughout the lake. We find most of our seasoned boaters prefer shallow draft boats for these reasons.

Cabins

Fishing is a popular activity at the park since Lake Seminole is well-known for its yields. Largemouth and smallmouth bass, catfish, bluegill, speckled perch, and bream are some of the fish that might be landed by anglers. A Florida freshwater fishing license may be required.

Wildlife Viewing

Wildlife Viewing

Wildlife and bird viewing opportunities are bountiful at Three Rivers State Park! Bald Eagles make their nests within the park, and can be seen soaring over the lake. Waterfowl by the hundreds seek refuge in the quiet bays and sloughs that surround the park. Deer are a very common sight, along with the ubiquitous raccoon and our own population of eastern fox squirrels. These large squirrels are a sight to behold, with silvery white fur, often with a mask of black covering their faces. Many species of rare or uncommon plants can also be found throughout the park. Three Rivers is part of the Great Florida Birding Trail!  Bird blinds, binoculars, and reference books are available upon request. Alligators are visible and present during the warm weather months.
