We took the "tram tour" 2 different trips and each time learned something new about this park and about Florida flora and fauna and animals, birds, etc. All of the commentators were well informed and loved what they do and it was evident and enjoyable to listen to them explain the park. Take the time to also visit the restaurant... More

I have been to this park numerous times over the past 25 years. It is excellent for hiking and road biking. The campsites are standard Florida State Park facilities. The CCC museum is good on the hot days. The cypress trail and hiking trails give many chances to see the wildlife. However this is a Florida park without any water... More

This will probably be the shortest review I've ever done, only because we didn't last very long lol. Which is a real pity, but it's Florida's rainy season and there was a large rainstorm the day before, and due that evening so the humidity was pretty heavy. We parked at the first available area we could find, which seemed to... More

It has some really nice trails to walk and you have the opportunity to observe some wild life. These trails are very easy to walk. It has a nice picnic and playground area. They offer special entertainment events in the evenings throughout the year. You can contact the park to get the schedule. There is also a tram ride that... More

We actually checked this place out because of TripAdvisor. I highly recommend this park to anyone who is in the area. There is a small entrance fee ($6 per car) but it's totally worth it. We took to the trails and loved walking through the swamp trails. We saw many forms of wildlife (snakes, frogs, turtles, lizards). Unfortunately, it was... More

This state park has a nice pet-friendly campground but considering you don't want to camp in the summer in Florida, it was extremely crowded in the spring. The camp sites are average size but close to your neighbors if the park is full. The park was quite noisy up until 11pm (start of quiet hours). The noise died down but... More

If you are in Florida and within driving distance, make the effort to visit this state park. Pack a picnic and take your time enjoying the many walking trails and boardwalks. The landscape is lush and diverse. You will likely see alligators and other wildlife if you are alert.

With a small entrance fee, this place is a must see! I hiked on the majority of the trails which all were easy to follow and hike. The cat-walk is a must! When I walked along that I truly felt like I was going back in time. Walking quietly through the park you are sure to encounter wildlife. I walked... More

Highlands Hammock is not our first choice for camping, since we don’t hike or bike. First off, there is no fishing, which is our main objective when we book a campsite. There is a lot of water in Sebring; however, much of it is blocked off to the public because most of the lakefront property is privately owned. There is... More

This is a great time. They really put on a great Halloween party. The Haunted house is great fun. The park is clean and the campground is great for kids.
