About the Property

The Love Lodge is a tranquil oasis within minutes of the Alafia River State Park, Florida's #1 mountain biking trail, as well as a number of other destinations for boating, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, carting, ATV, and skeet shooting. We are only 5 minutes to the Alderman Ford Canoe Launch on the Alafia River, just upstream of Lithia Springs. The property is also a great jumping off point for berry picking and flower picking when the season is right. 

Located in the town of Lithia, conveniently between Tampa and Orlando, we are 15 minutes away from antique shopping in Plant City and Lakeland; 20 minutes from Dinosaur World; 30 minutes from Busch Gardens Tampa; and an hour and 15 minutes from Disney World. The Gulf beaches are also within striking distance if you’re looking to enjoy some time on the coast.

About the listing 

This site can accommodate RVs up to 20 feet in length or tent campers. Take advantage of water and electrical hookups (110V), as well as access to a porta potty. 

As long as there is no fire ban in place, enjoy the fire pit with family and friends. If you want to give your onboard cooking system a break, we do have a gas grill available. If you're feeling more rustic, we also have firewood available for a good old fashioned open-fire cooking experience. Just make sure you bring your own cooking tools. 

A picnic table is provided for a comfortable dining experience. 

Pets are welcome. 

Your Hosts are available to greet you upon arrival if you like, or are also happy to offer self check-in per guest preference. 

While you will have privacy in your camper/RV and your surrounding site, note that you may run into other campers who are staying in the cabin. 

Additional Details to Note:

  • Ice is available as an Extra and can be purchased upon checkout
  • We have good cell service for all carriers, and WiFi is available upon request

The owner was very nice and worked us into her schedule. The site was clean and level along with a nice big fire pit. Unfortunately it is located very close to a fairly busy road and was a little difficult to sleep at night. Close to bike park and works well for overflow camping in peak season.

Great Hipcamp location on a private property. The place is shared between a cabin rental and a Van camp. Shared fire pit outside enables great interactions and has been lots of fun. Christine is very responsive during communications and has been a real pleasure to interact with. The road close to the property can be a bit noisy during weekends but nothing that really distract from the experience

Sarah was a great host the property was close to a road but still really private and quiet at night. Sarah’s land was in a great location for several county and state parks. The nearby state park provided great hiking kayaking and fishing. It was nice being able to have my dog off leash on the gated land.

Beautiful spot in charming Lithia. Great energy, Christine has put a lot of love in making this spot special. Thoughtful details all over. The site sits in a comfortable spot overlooking Florida fauna. The site only has 110 plug in, so come prepared with your adapter. Spring water hose is available and I’ll definitely be coming back just because of the calming energy and welcoming and caring host Christine.

We had to cut our trip short due to a family emergency but for t he time we were there it was very relaxing and a nice setting. Looking forward to returning and enjoying a little relaxation and getting a tour of the cute cabin.
