There are many activities for you at your park, including:
Florida's second largest Live Oak
Eco-Tours Moonlight Tours Kayak 101 Classes
Lake Griffin State Park offers guided kayak and canoe Eco-Tours and Moonlight Tours. For those who have never kayaked, or want to refresh their skills, the park offers basic kayak lessons in their Kayak 101 Classes. For more information about these tours and classes go to the Tours page.
Lake Griffin State Park provides private guided kayak eco-tours on the water that are informative and a lot of fun. Eco-tours are a great way to share your love of the outdoors with family members, friends, members of your club or neighborhood. If our public eco-tours don’t fit your schedule, contact us to arrange a private tour for 6–12 paddlers. No experience is needed, and we supply all equipment. Private tours depend on availability of guides. For more information on how to set up a Private Eco-Tour click here.
Friends ready for a Private Eco-Tour
Fun on the water.
The Friends buy and donate to the park recreational equipment such as exercise equipment, kayaks, and canoes. We also pay for tools, materials, and vehicles needed by the park that their budget does not cover.
One of the park's most popular activities is paddling kayaks and canoes. Fourteen FLGSP members are park volunteers who lead both daytime and moonlight kayak eco-tours and teach Kayak 101 classes. Visitors register and pay for these tours on our web site, which allows park staff to focus their time on caring for the park's other visitors and resources. We hope you'll join us for an enjoyable and educational experience on the water!
We invite you to become a Friend of the park and help us support the wonderful resources of Lake Griffin State Park. Help us maintain and improve the conservation of Florida's resources and provide a natural environment of learning and pleasure for families, school children, groups, and naturalists for years to come.
