Welcome to Hillsborough River State Park

The river was named in the late 1700s for Wills Hills, the British Colonial Secretary and Lord Earl of Hillsborough.  In the 1930's, during the Great Depression, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), established the area surrounding the river rapids as a public park.  Many of the park's structures and the suspension bridge are examples of the CCC style of rustic architecture, in harmony with the natural environment.
