With its amazing weather and miles of shoreline, the area around Tampa, Florida is the perfect place for playing in the outdoors. At Hickory Point RV Park, you’ll stay just a short walk away from our white sand beach, a terrific spot for swimming, sunbathing, shelling and admiring our incredible Florida wildlife. We are near amazing fishing spots, miles of water for boating, sailing and jet-skiing; and a busy waterfront with fishing and shrimp boats. Our area also has fabulous golf courses, scenic roads for bike riding and superb festivals and special events.
Hickory Point RV Park is set in the quiet town of Tarpon Springs, a community with a rich cultural heritage. In the late 1800s, settlers founded this as a sponge fishing center. You can still shop for these unique, natural sponges in shops along the winding streets of Tarpon Springs’ quaint downtown. Tour through the specialty shops, make arrangements for a diving expedition, or stop to sample our famous Greek cuisine. If you bring your feast back to camp, you can enjoy a picnic at Hickory Point’s beautiful waterfront picnic area, taking in views of the canals and waterways.
Right in camp at Hickory Point RV Park, you can enjoy a BBQ at your own campsite, or bird watching from our picnic area. Launch your boat from our own dock or swim in the warm Gulf of Mexico.

Our local area has playgrounds for the kids, tennis courts, casinos, dance halls and plenty of opportunities for water sports and beach fun.
