A good place to get a background of the region. The museum is well done and gives a great picture of the wildlife past and present. The park buildings across the highway were closed but the Kayak rentals were open and busy. Nice trails to walk and amble parking.

We stayed in the Kissimmee area for an extended stay and frequently biked at this park. The bike path is paved, and the main path is approximately 3-4 miles long (one-way). The path is very well maintained and flat (no hills here). You can also rent kayak’s and visit Pioneer Village and the Homestead. I would recommend this area for biking. We did rent kayak’s and they do get busy so make sure you make reservations in advance especially if you come on a weekend.

Located off Rt 193 East is a somewhat hidden State Park memorializing the early settlers to the area including exhibits of the wood cutting trade and historic cabins. There is also a walking trail and for a fee, you can rent a kayak and paddle down the stream. It's a scenic area as the vegetation is uncut and lost of moss hanging from the trees. Definitely worth a 1/2 hour visit. And free

This park is a hidden oasis in the midst of the busy city and theme parks. Beautifully maintained walking/biking trails and a “paddling” trail on the creek. Bring your own watercraft or rent canoe/kayak. We saw many birds and even an alligator in a lake along the trail! Stop and tour the Pioneer Museum and Village ($7 for adults). Great way to relax between hectic days at WDW.

We had a very nice walk around the historic area of this park and then tried to walk a trail but were swarmed by mosquitoes who were even biting through T-shirts so we high-tailed it out of there. We were just killing some time so had not planned for a walk in a swampy area. It was a very enjoyable (but short) walk until we got to the mosquitoes!

This looked like a great place to kayak and they have rentals right there but be sure to wear insect repellent!

Since we were in the area for a bit, we thought we’d take a hike to see some nature and take pictures. We were the only car in the lot on a weekday afternoon. The trail is paved and wide open and great for handicapped but it was adjacent to housing projects that are not in the best shape. There were some people lulling around. Just a small section over water where there was good bird watching. We didn’t feel safe and there must be prettier areas around.

The water was low and there are lots of trees in the water. We were a few feet from a 5 foot gator, he splashed in the Water and went under our kayak. His tail taped my hand! It was kinda nerve wracking. We ran into a tree and it rained spiders down upon us. I screamed like a 4 year old. This was NOT my favorite trip and I suggest you be an experienced kayaker in order to take on all the downed trees. It is maneuverable with skill. On a good note, drop in is easy. Scenery was wild Florida and beautiful. Ruins of the old country bridge and lots of spots where the hurricane waters have dumped debris. Probably better at a higher water level.

We rented a canoe and Alex set us up with lots of patience for my 50 questions. Once you get past the traffic noise it becomes so tranquil and beautiful. We spent two hours here gently paddling through the creek. We saw some turtles and some very nice birds. I totally recommend this to get off the beaten path of the area amusements. Some portions were quite narrow so general knowledge of paddling is a must.

This place is just simply great for kayaking!
Perfect if you want to do something different to break up your excitement and visits to Disney world parks.
It is easy to find, you can rent kayaks on a spot as we did and just go and explore the Creek. It is beautiful and such a fun. We have seen number of tortoises and a river snake, but no gators.
We did the North part of the Creek and it was just brilliant.
Highly recommended.

This is a natural gem right off the beaten path in busy Kissimmee. We visited during the shoulder season so it wasn’t busy. The wooded trails are wide and great for walking and biking. The interpretive signage for the original homestead and wood shingle business were informative and interesting.
