We came to Sebring to visit people and didn't know this park was here till they suggested it. I would most definitely go back. We hiked two trails and saw what Florida really looked like. We were sad we didn't see a gator though.

We have been visiting this park for quite a few years. It has a lot to offer. It is a nice place to spend an afternoon hiking on the trails. They have different events throughout the year. The only con is that they closed the snack bar. We miss being able to get a snack.

Quiet wilderness visible by foot, car, horse, bike, and more. Six dollars for day admission for two in SUV. Dogs are welcome in this state park on hiking trails, except those over boardwalks with gator danger. There is a museum re. CCC. Civilian Construction Corps site from the Great Depression that was interesting for no added charge.

We visited the park and walked the trails and wooden bridges thru the swamp. It was truly an amazing experience. Very quiet and peaceful and I enjoyed reading all the plaques dedicated to friends and family members along the way. Can't wait to go back and explore other areas of the park.

My wife and I go here often. The many different trails and scenery are beautiful. The staff & rangers are very helpful. We enjoy getting a good days exercise too.

Like a tropical rain forest. Lots of trails to walk most short so an easy hike... add them all together for a longer day hike. The boardwalks through the swamp areas are awesome... didn't see any gators the day we were there (too windy) but we did find a beautiful spot just off the road from the park where the... More

This is a large campground favored by many snow birds. It needs upgrading as bath houses are dated. Sites are level, but are not private. Good walking trails and biking makes this a good place to spend several days or weeks. Laundry is small, so go early. Only one dump station so there ican be a long wait time. Grocery... More

This state park is beautiful with plenty of shaded areas and hiking trails. The camping facilities are great and the setting is beautiful -- lots of trees and the sites are spacious. Check the website for the Music in the Park series. The concerts are free and there is plenty of parking -- you do need to bring your own... More

I visited this last week, and was really surprised. You hear almost nothing, it is beautiful there. Many, short, trails to walk, and you can complete relax and enjoy. Recommended!
