This is a state park that is excellent for camping or just a day visit to walk or bike. The oldest live oak tree in Florida lives here and is easy to get to via one of the trails. It is a state park so there is an admission fee.

Great example of old Florida and how the Florida state park system got started. Brings home how tough things were back in the old days. The tram ride is a neat way to see the park and the trails are good exercise.

We hike trails at Hammock State Park several times a week. It is a beautiful and peaceful place. We have seen alligators, birds, turtles, deer, snakes, armadillos, wild hogs and wild turkeys. A must see!

My wife and I went to meet up with a small group. The campsites were great and we wish we brought our bicycles. I would visit this place again and again

If you like state parks, you will love this place! All the trails are very well done. I feel the best time to go is when they have the hunted trail ride during Holloween

This park offers a very informative Tram Ride (sign up early to reserve a seat). The numerous Ecosystems support a wide variety of wildlife and plants.

It is a great area for campers or someone interested in a scenic trolly ride through a state park for a reasonable price

This is a hiking park. I would only stay an afternoon or morning. Not much in the way of camping or activities other than hiking. We enjoy a good walk but would love to have seen or experienced more.
