Lake Griffin State Park
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, 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 two hiking trails totaling two miles in length. 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 to inquire 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.
