Lithia Springs Park

We decided that we would move on today without the generator fixed.  I will find an RV shop in the next few days to look at my problem.  I think it is bigger than just the generator and may have something to do with the whole charging system.  So Sue found us a spot in Hillsborough County Park about 90 miles north of Cape Coral.  The 160-acre park, located on the Alafia River, offers varied plant communities, river cypress swamps, hardwood hammocks.  The park’s major attraction is the natural spring that provides an excellent swimming experience since the water temperature remains at 72 degrees year around.  We will try the pool tomorrow.  In addition to swimming, there is a bath house, playground and picnic facilities as well as a great campground. 

The pool is fed by a natural spring and maintains a temperature of 72F
We found a nice spot close to the river and we figure we will hang out here for 4 or 5 days.  We are not far from Lazy Days RV repair so may go there and see if they will look at my electrical problem.

Our camp spot is by the river near the canoe launch.  Although it is good for a canoe I don't think it would be wise to put the inflatable kayak in because there are trees sticking up in a lot of spots and there are alligators hanging around in there.

  1. Looks like a nice spot to hang out for a few days. Hope you get your generator/electrical problem sorted out.

  2. Yes we need the generator for our boondocking in Texas and Arizona.
