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.

Just spent a lovely couple of days at the Love Lodge Lithia camping. We had a travel trailer, a tent and two vehicle sleepers. Christine was very accommodating and made us feel so welcome.. We had a lovely fire in the fire circle. She and her business partner are working hard to improve the property to make it even better. Spend the night with the stars and the lowing cows in this little acre of central Florida.

Lots of attention to detail. Christine made sure we felt at home while we tent camped on her private and quiet property. She welcomed us at the last minute even though she was preparing the lodge for a wedding! She also was knowledgeable about the local area for mountain biking, kayaking, and sight seeing. We recommend this place for those traveling through the area

Christine has a lovely spot for pitching our tent!
Flat spot surrounded by nature and easily accessible from the road. She was super nice and recommended things to do in the area and gave us a tour of the on-site lodge which is beautiful! Even though she was preparing for a wedding at the house, she responded quickly and allowed us to stay. We highly recommend this hipcamp and enjoy your stay!
