The Friends of Lake Griffin State Park

The Friends raise money through membership, donations, providing kayak tours, and selling firewood to campers.  One hundred (100%) percent of this money is used to support the park.  We help the park purchase equipment that is not in the park budget saving Florida taxpayers thousands of dollars every year. Recent projects include

  • Purchasing new kayaks for rental
  • Purchasing exercise equipment for the park 
  • Leading kayak tours and teaching basic kayaking classes
  • Helping the park host fishing clinics for young children

Explore the “Real Florida”
