Highlands Hammock Park was a very nice park. Walking trails, bike trails, museum and guided tram ride from Park Rangers. Tram rides are on the summer schedule now. Call ahead to confirm times. The museum was very interesting and historical.

The park is beautiful, with about 10 different hiking trails. Staff is very friendly. The campground leaves a bit to be desired, with many spots very close together, with no buffer. We booked a tent only site which turned out to be approximately 25 feet wide by 20 feet max. It was a holiday weekend and the campsites on all... More

We stumbled upon the park and glad we spent the small admission fee to drive through. There are several paths to take a hike to view different hammock areas. We saw several different animals/birds/insects. A nice conservation area. Perfect for a bike ride.

Florida's first state park, this is the idealized swamp. Old growth cypress and live oak lined with ferns, bromeleads and orchids. Watercress and lilly pad covered waters teeming with life. Quiet trails and board walks get you into this and it becomes like a walk into the past when man was not the dominate species in these parts. Get away... More

Huge trees mean lots of shade, always a good thing in Florida. Short nature walks, most allow dogs, a must for me. Only down side is lack of grass on campsite, so plan on getting dirty. Bathrooms were clean. Will definitely come back.

This park was small but fantastic with a friendly staff. We took all of the hikes available; storm damage had closed one trail & the tram through the restricted area. All of the hikes are short but the scenery was exquisite. The boardwalk and trails were all well maintained. The entire time we were in the park we only saw... More

Very nice park with many trails through the swamp. There was usually parking available near the trail heads. The little guide page gave the length and brief description of the trails. The Cypress Swamp Trail sounded most interesting but after we had gone a good way the boardwalk raised up over the swamp became very narrow with only one handrail.... More

Loved the access right off Highway 27 in Sebring, awesome natur trails, and clean working RV hookups

we booked a site for 2 nights, that was rated as being able to accommodate a 30' RV. It was not. It was impossible to back our 30' Trailer into the site and the head ranger agreed. We were moved to another site that accommodated us but was only available for one night so we left early. All sites are... More
