Nice park with a lot of nature trails. My family enjoyed the boardwalks. There are a couple of playgrounds that our children liked. We saw a lot of animals during our stay, including deer that roamed around the campsites during the late nigh/early morning hours. The Campground is decent. The sites have fire rings, picnic tables and many are shaded... More

Highlands Hammock is a very beautiful, clean, state park. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Bathrooms were very clean and easily accessible. All the hiking trails were very well marked, but make sure you bring plenty of mosquito repellent. If you like to bike ride there's plenty of bike pathways to travel on also. Be cautious, there is a... More

We travel by RV to Highlands at least twice a year and we love it here. Always choose Lot 109. It is very large, shady and great for big rigs. We just love the trails and the loop for bike riding. Quiet ad peaceful.

We stayed at the State Park Campground in early June and found the place to be quite empty and quiet, which was great. Given, we stayed during "out of season" so I imagine the place is booming during peak season times. None the less the campground was well maintained and taken care of. Bathrooms and showers were clean and appealing.... More

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.
