Paddle Trips at Camp Bayou

The summer schedule for Saturday guided paddle trips at Camp Bayou is set!

July 19, Aug 23, Sept 20 are morning trips that start at 9am. On Sept 6, there will be a moonlight paddle for International Observe the Moon Night, starting at 7:30 pm. Canoe rental is $25 (seats 3). If you have your own canoe, join us- $5 donation requested. Call to reserve your space- 813-641-8545.

Camp Bayou Outdoor Learning Center is neither a campground nor a summer camp. It was an RV park before the County's ELAP program purchased the land but it is now open for day use only, open to the general public. Through volunteers, donations, supporters and grants, the managing non-profit- B.O.L.D. - offers pre-scheduled programs to schools, youth groups, adult groups and families. Monthly canoe tours are available by reservation only. Check the online calendar for trip dates.

The Center is open from Thursday- Saturday from 9am-2pm for passive recreational pursuits such as wildlife watching, nature photography and trail walks. General admission is still FREE. The Camp Bayou Outdoor Learning Center is a public- private partnership between Bayou Outdoor Learning and Discovery, Inc. (BOLD) and Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation and Conservation. Camp Bayou is located 3 miles south of SR674 at the end of 24th St SE in Ruskin. More information is on the web at , Facebook or call 813-641-8545.
