I always thought florida was orang groves and orange groves, and of course beaches, and disney, but Highlands Hammock State Park introduced me to the natural side of central florida. Wildlife abounds, with baby gators, big gators and many armadillos (which I did not know were even in Florida!). the trails are easy and well marked, the atmosphere, the day... More

We were visiting from out of town and wanted a nice place to run. The hotel recommended Highland Hammock park. We went in early evening. They have multiple trails including a main 3 mile trail that we ran. There were bathrooms and all the trails were well marked. There is a $6 entrance fee but it was worth it. The... More

We've had our family reunion at the rec hall a few times. It is now air conditioned, which is helpful. Still a bit rustic. Be sure to take time to drive through the park if you don't have time for the hiking trails. The trees and wildlife are amazing.

This is one of the most beautiful places you can go to in Central Florida! The hammock has so many different areas in it, there are six different walking areas, that you will see so many things that are just to do with that area. It's all so incredible to check out the schedule of events that are going on,... More

Really lovely, even in the heat of summer. Young kids got bored quickly, but the adults loved it. Will return in the fall to camp.

A well maintained park and a pleasure to walk, especially the boardwalk trails. Next visit will be to ride the biking trails.

The park was beautiful and cheap. Only $2.00 for the day. Lots of trails to explore. Nature at its very best!
