We loved the primitive camping and being away from all the noisy campers, etc. The hiking is great with a lot of beautiful short hikes several of which are on boardwalks through the hammocks and over the water. Such fun. Really a nice park!

Went to the park last night for the music in the park concert. What a fun night for five dollars you couldn't get better entertainment and atmosphere. People were dancing on the grass fires in the pits everybody enjoyed themselves. It was a beautiful night but got cool later in the evening. So bring a sweater or blanket. There is... More

Took a ranger-guided hike on the Fern trail then explored on my own. It was interesting but extremely slow-paced. Enjoyed the Cypress trail and the CCC museum and biking around the loop. $4 admission for single in auto

It was a pretty cool park. You got to see a lot of what Florida used to be like. We didn't see much wildlife like we were hoping, but I'm sure that is variable.

We love taking family time to take lunch out to the park and take a walk. Well kept, clean, nice facilities. The tram is worth taking also. Nice people.

Had a lovely visit and wished I had stayed an extra day and brought my bikes as they have lovely bike trails too. The CCC Museum was very interesting and a great asset to the park. I walked all the hiking trails but one and saw deer, armadillo, squirrels, and evidence of wild pigs. Campground was very full but surprisingly... More

We stayed at Highlands Hammock over new years. The visit started out a little rough when we arrived at our reserved camping spot, 134, and discovered it was just wide enough to park the camper in and literally looked like a grass alley between the two roads. It butted right up against what appeared to be tent city. I went... More

Highland Hammock State Park has numerous trails and miles of bike paths for exploring. Many of the trails take you into the hammock to experience the fun of area wildlife during your hike. There are areas for picnicking, camping and a playground area for the kids. A trip to Highlands Hammock is well worth your time.
