Lake Griffin State Park
Boat ramp and canoe/kayak rental closure
From now until March 1, 2019 the boat ramp and canoe/kayak rentals will be unavailable, due to construction of a new canoe/kayak launch. The nearest public boat ramp is located at Herlong Park at 700 E. North Blvd. in Leesburg. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Welcome to Lake Griffin State Park
If you’re looking to relax, take a hike or go for a paddle you’ve come to the right place.
Our park encompasses 620 acres and allows visitors to explore in several ways. Anglers or birders may want to rent a canoe or a kayak to explore Lake Griffin’s marshes. If you’re not sure paddling alone is for you that’s ok, because we offer guided canoe and kayak tours. If you’d enjoy a less vigorous type of exploration we also offer guided pontoon boat tours.
The park boasts 2 hiking trails totaling about 2 miles. Along the way you’ll have the opportunity to see several different habitats including Swamp and Sandhill. Animals commonly spotted in the park include racoons, bobcats, coyotes and even bears! Call the ranger station at 352-360-6760 to enquire about the availability of guided hikes.
Of course you can’t leave without seeing the state’s second largest Live Oak tree which is approximately 400 years old.
If you think it sounds like a lot to do you’d be right so why not take some time to really enjoy what the park and surrounding cities have to offer. We have 40 campsites each with water and electric. Some sites have sewer and all sites fill up quickly in the winter months.
