We visited the park several years ago and remember the museum and tram ride. Florida has some wonderful state parks. If you are staying inSebring or near by its a great place to visit. Another place to visit is the Florida State college located in Avon Park just north of Sebring.

We only went on a few of the trails. The Cyprus Swamp trail is gorgeous with all the trees reflected in the black water. The Ancient Hammock trail was very nice too. My 8 year old son may or may not have climbed an orange tree and picked an orange. I didn't see anything in the pamphlet that said not... More

We lucked up on a visit to Lake Placid when the park was hosting a concert in the park. The featured band was GROOVUS and they were awesome. . . old motown, country pop, easy listening. Food trucks offered a nice selection of food, many brought there own picnic. Lots of folks danced, some sang with the group, and the... More

Very nice State park with a great picnic area and clean bathrooms. Lots of trees and birds with nice play equipment for the kids. They offer a tram tour through the scenic drive though I chose to go solo and had a great visit. Beautiful hiking trails, boardwalk, wild flowers, and wildlife. There is something here for everyone.

Visited for the first time and was surprised to find how much I enjoyed this park. It is very accessible, staff are extremely helpful, and maps are clear and easy to follow. We took 4 of the trails and found each to be different focus, and truly shows the natural scenic beauty of this area of Florida. Will return again.... More

Well kept, friendly staff/volonteers and surprisingly cheap to visit. Good markings and lots of things to do. Boardwalks in good shape. We loved the narrow one by the lake. We saw alligators, snakes and lots of birds. Don't miss the lovely walk with wild oranges.. what a scent from the flowers!!! We drove the loop and walk all the trails.... More

This park has many activities from hiking trails, bike paths, planned outings, potluck suppers and musical performances. There is a tram ride and a museum on the property. My wife and I stayed there for six days. The people there are very friendly.

My husband and I have camped here for the past several years. There is so much to see and do. There are numerous nature trails and biking trails, concerts in the park, various programs for bringing campers together if you wish to participate, and a book exchange. Washers & dryers are available for only $1 per load. The park staff... More

If you want a fun adventure in a tram with a great guide, make sure to arrive at the State Forest ticket booth about 7:30-7:45 a.m on the day you want to take the ride. You have to show up in person to buy the tickets for the ride later that day. Usually, there are rides at 1:00 and 2:30,... More

My family has enjoyed camping in Highlands Hammocks State Park for years. Due to its popularity the park fills quickly especially in season. We have camped in both the winter and summer seasons. The large and numerous Oak trees supply ample shade and the temperature under the oak hammock can be 10 degrees less than the surrounding area. The sites... More
