Lake Kissimmee State Park is a clean, small park. There is a boat ramp (that is free - unusual now a days!)

We spent 2 nights camping at thid park. Even though all the camping sites were booked the place did not feel crowded. The location is easy to get to, the staff was very polite and helpful. Also, the restrooms were very clean and centrally located. We went bike riding, hiking and also visited the Cow Camp, which was very educational.... More

My brother and I went camping here for my birthday. The campground was spacious and beautiful. The Cracker cow camp was very nice and the concession area was very nice as well. The only problem we encountered were the constant airboats that zoomed by our camp all day and night. The propellers were so loud the first night that we... More

Although the park does not have a ton to do if your kids are tech-junkies (no Verizon 4G in the park at all), it is a beautiful park for the nature lover. I did not see any wild animals in my two nights there, the observation tower and Cow Camp were both cool. The shaded sites are great (Loop LK1-Site... More

Camping was awesome. The overlook tower was amazing. It looks like a plain from Africa. There were deer every where. We went to the overlook at night and the stars were amazing.

We stayed here for two nights in an RV spot (19). The camp sites are very private and have water and electric hookups that worked perfectly. The park rangers were very helpful in checking us in, and were very accommodating to our late arrival. Each campsite has endless shade and is a short walk to the central bathhouse. The bathhouse...

Not a lot for a senior to see from a car I was disaappointed but it was pretty in the park. If you had more time I suppose the experince could be improved greatly. Looks like it may be a good place to camp out if you are into that kind of thing.

Enjoy using the marina as a stopping point on our pontoon excursions where we'll stop and have some ice cream before heading back out on Kissimmee. They also offer Segway tours and kayak rentals.
