This is a peaceful, light exercise and opportunity to see a unique habitat with its flora and fauna while still protected from runaway "sprawl."

This is a nice campground which I have reviewed before, but the concession stand which sold their orange ice cream is no longer open. No little general store or breakfast either. They still have good trails to hike and the park is kept up fairly well. There's a nice playground for the kids. One of the bathrooms was closed which... More

A few years ago we camped with the kids at Highlands Hammock Park. We then stayed 1 night with two tents at the main camping site for RV's and Tents (electricity, restrooms, etc.). We were then almost alone, there were only 3 or 4 campers more on the main site and we loved it! This time it was Spring Break....... More

We go yo Highland Hammock park every year to walk the trails. We have been treated to many snake sightings and one close sighting of a wild boar. The trails are flat, wide and easy to walk. The is also a guide tram ride through the park and an excellent museum that tells the tale of the park's history. Nice... More

This park is for someone who likes quiet and lots of plant life and animals. The little tour on the weekends is worth the fair. I live in town and always take friends that come in to visit. The biking is fun. You can stop and walk into the park to view different things. Bring a camera! You can see... More

I had heard so much about this park. I was disappointed with the tiny sites! There is no privacy at all, and sites can be quite tricky to get into. We only have a 27' trailer, and there were challenges. We were in 2 sites. Each one required extensions on our water hose and electric cord! Hookups were in akward... More

Tram tour of the park along with the historic Civilian Conservation Corps museum followed by the walk in the wooden trail bridge. Pretty awesome time. The guide was very knowledgeable- Ranger Emily.
