Flooding affecting boardwalk, canoe, kayak and shelter rentals
Because of the changing water levels the status of the boardwalk, canoe/kayak rentals, and the list of shelters available for rental or utilization can change without further notice. The amenities may close and the services may suspend at any time due to safety concerns about flood waters. For more information and updates, please call the park office at (813) 987-6204.
Lettuce Lake Conservation Park is one of Hillsborough County's most visited parks. More than half of the park’s property lies in the natural floodplain of the Hillsborough River, consisting of a hardwood swamp forest. The remainder of the park consists of hardwood hammocks and pine flatwoods plant communities.
The park features wooded picnic areas and playgrounds, a 1.25-mile paved exercise trail and 3,500-foot boardwalk with an observation tower provides scenic views of the Hillsborough River. Park ranger and volunteer-led nature education tours are available on weekends. Canoe and kayaks rentals provide up-close encounters with a variety of aquatic birds and wildlife.
Canoeing and Kayaking
Canoes and kayaks can be rented on site at the park's entry station. See other locations.
