There are many different hiking trails, and all of them are well kept. The catwalk is a great experience for everyone to take. Park trails are well maintained and are easy to walk. An elevated boardwalk crosses some marvelous swamp areas; we saw a big resting alligator in the swamp.This park is like an enchanted forest, every time we go... More

We are at this park now for 2 weeks. It's our first time here. We love it. When the weather is a bit too warm most of the trails are shaded so we can do them all day long. We start each day at sunrise (not too early in the winter). We ride our bikes on the very nice paved... More

This is a great place to take the family to see a Beautiful Florida State Park. There are hiking trails that take you into the swamp area where you can view large turtles, alligators and many varieties of water birds. They offer a wonderful ride around the park that is very informative and interesting.

Highlands Hammock is one of our favorite spots in the area. My parents live not too far away and we go there almost every time we visit them. Sometimes we rent bikes for an hour or so. The bikes are not great but they are serviceable and inexpensive, so it's a good way to get some exercise in pretty surroundings.... More

We took our daughter and her two kids aged 8 and 5 there yesterday. The weather was perfect for walking the nature trails. We walked the "catwalk" thru the swamp. We asked some other guests who had just walked it if they had seen any alligators and they had spotted a couple but we actually didn't see any. However, there... More

I started not to write this but after a week I felt that I needed to express my displeasure since we were never contacted by the management after 2 requests. First, we have camped here on many occasions and have always enjoyed our experiences at HH. We arrived at 3:30 after the 3:00 check in as listed. The site had... More

We had a very nice bike ride and took few walking trails as well. Nice campground too. Wish we could get a site to camp there but they were full for the dates we needed.

First of all, I love this park. I always see wildlife every time I visit. Today I saw a total of fourteen armadillos, a wild boar, a deer and numerous different birds. Although no alligators this trip. The hiking trails are wonderful. Just a great place to go for a hike.
