I recently took my two kids for a Saturday night camping trip here. Check in was easy, and as with most of the ranger stations I've been to in Florida the people staffing it were knowledgeable and welcoming. The camp sites were well marked and well shaded. During our stay we explored the different trails throughout the park and were... More

This is one of my favorite parks in Florida. The flora is beautiful. Great wild life. I have seen deer, many different birds, gators, snakes, otters, etc. I would definitely recommend the tram with a guided ranger. I have done it several times and the rangers who guide you are very knowledgeable. Each of them has a different expertise and... More

This park has some very scenic trails through Bald Cypress swamps. Some trails are part trail and part boardwalk over the water. Majestic trees surround you as you walk these trails. There are quiet a few trails and they are not too long or difficult, but do them all it would take a bit of time. Well worth taking the... More

Serene atmosphere. Great day trip with the kids. Visit the museum then have a picnic across the way under a pavilion. Play area next to picnic area. Catwalk through the marsh is a must see! Beautiful lush greenery everywhere. Bikes are available for rent. Wear lightweight long sleeve shirts and pants....even in the summer, mosquitos can be overwhelming!

We came here for five days in our RV. Not used to no sewer connection but we managed our first trip with no sewer. We needed to learn to do it since most state parks are without sewer connection anyway. The trails are a good length for our 7/10 year old kiddos. When we camped here, the park was pretty... More

I have been to Highlands Hammock State Park numerous times. During Music in the Park, our group camps & ride the shuttle to the entertainment. You cannot find any better time for $5. The park is awesome with tours & trails. Cost is below the amount of fun and education you will receive while there. Rated a #1 park!

We absolutely love the tram ride with our children ages 14 and 9. It was a great way to see all of the flora and all of the native animal species with a great park ranger who was very patient with the questions my son asked. At 1 1/2 hours it was the perfect amount of time. There were frequent... More

I have visited many Florida parks and this one of my favorite! It is old Florida and nice trails to walk on. Park is very clean and the trees are beautiful! There is a museum in the middle of the park. The information was interesting! I will be back!
