Highlands Hammock Park

Wonderful, natural park for biking, walking, hiking. We like to bike there, and have seen deer, wild pigs, tropical birds.

The CCC museum was very informative. Newer generations probably haven't heard of this program. I would like to know more on how this area was chosen to be the first state park. The park was green and swampy - partly due to the excess rain. There are some nice boardwalks that allow visitors to walk into the interior so there... More

I enjoy going to Highlands Hammock park to for the wildlife & trails. You are able to see alligators along the side of some of the roads or on a couple of the boardwalks. I have encountered deer, raccoon, snakes, boar, & bear. I would suggest taking some mosquito spray with you if you plan to hike the trails.

I went camping here with my sister, my niece, and my niece's partner August 7-9th. It was wonderful. The campground was empty! Try site 49... it backs up to the woods and is very spacious. I don't know why it was empty because it was beautiful. The sites do seem to be on top of eachother, so do your research... More

This is a state park with walking trails, biking trail, picnic area, etc. There is also a campground. And, there is also a ranger guided tram ride. Check the state of Florida park site for up to date information. This park has a lot of foliage and some water so make sure you bring your mosquito repellant.

Rented bikes in park and rode thru park, stopped at hiking trails with broadwalks and went on really cool hikes with broadwalks going over swamps and into wild Florida forests. Great experience for everyone!

Beautiful hikes and fun geocaching. Make sure you bring your water on the hike because it gets hot!! A little lost wilderness in the middle of Sebring

I grew up going to Highlands Hammock. I loved it as a kid and now my kids love going. Their favorite is walk the trail and looking for Aligators.
