This state park has a nice pet-friendly campground but considering you don't want to camp in the summer in Florida, it was extremely crowded in the spring. The camp sites are average size but close to your neighbors if the park is full. The park was quite noisy up until 11pm (start of quiet hours). The noise died down but... More

If you are in Florida and within driving distance, make the effort to visit this state park. Pack a picnic and take your time enjoying the many walking trails and boardwalks. The landscape is lush and diverse. You will likely see alligators and other wildlife if you are alert.

With a small entrance fee, this place is a must see! I hiked on the majority of the trails which all were easy to follow and hike. The cat-walk is a must! When I walked along that I truly felt like I was going back in time. Walking quietly through the park you are sure to encounter wildlife. I walked... More

Highlands Hammock is not our first choice for camping, since we don’t hike or bike. First off, there is no fishing, which is our main objective when we book a campsite. There is a lot of water in Sebring; however, much of it is blocked off to the public because most of the lakefront property is privately owned. There is... More

This is a great time. They really put on a great Halloween party. The Haunted house is great fun. The park is clean and the campground is great for kids.

As if the numerous hiking trails weren't enough to keep one interested in spending a few hours at this park, the first State Park in Florida, please consider spending at least an hour walking through the Civilian Conservative Corps Museum, housed on the grounds. It is a historic walk back in time to the l930s when work programs were developed... More

The adventure begins as you take the long drive through Florida Pines to the Ranger Station where you a nominal entrance fee. The Highlands Hammock State Park is one of the gems of the State park system. The park tells its own history by trails and a unique museum dedicated to the CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS (CCC), a federal program designed... More

Lots of natural atmosphere. We particularly enjoy the wildlife we can see from the well maintained and easing walking paths & trails. We have taken most of our visitors to the hammock from pre-teen grandkids to 60+ friends and every one has absolutely loved it.

Many walking trails. On the boardwalk trail saw alligators and turtles. Just beautiful . Many trees. Used to have an excellent restaurant but is closed now. There is camping available. Reminds one of what Florida looked like in the past.

I have not been camping in Florida and was worried about the heat but I went Memorial Day Weekend with 3 other friends in a small camper. The campsite was very nice with electric and water hookup but no sewer. The bathrooms were ok, one was nicer than the other and one other was actually closed. There was plenty of... More
