Camp Alafia

NOTE - There is NO canoeing available.

Camp Alafia is a primitive camp near Lithia and east of Tampa in Hillsborough County. The property, located at 5453 Lithia Pinecrest Rd., Lithia 33547, is bounded to the west by the Alafia River and contains several campsites beneath an oak canopy.

In 2012, the Council secured a grant that allowed the opening of the roads and nature trails. In addition, five more camp sites were opened up as well. The 500-acre camp is a primitive campground, ideally suited for Boy Scouts seeking a high adventure experience 30 minutes from south Tampa. Here, they can learn survival skills such as how to build lean-to shelters, eat off the land, and work together with others. With no potable water nor sanitary facilities, planning ahead is a must!
