Nature at its best in the area

My mother loves to take evening drives around the park. There are also many walking paths to explore at your leisure. Great natural place to visit if in the Sebring area.

Beautiful place to....walk, camp, take your kids, have a wedding, take pictures, walk on the cat walk. It's the perfect place with lots of things to do. Just make sure you bring bug spray! My great grandfather helped "build" Highlands Hammock. And it has some of the most gorgeous trees. I love going there :)

We pass by this park in bike every year during the Tour of Sebring and it is the best part of this 3 day event. The place is just beautiful and it is so peaceful. One year we saw a group of baby deers!!!! I highly recommend you visit this park when passing by the area!

I always love coming here. It's always a place we've come to, even even we were kids. I have to say that I miss the toddler area. It's hard for my small children to play on their playground.

One of the most beautiful state parks I have ever been to. There are numerous trails to walk and wildlife to view. We were lucky enough to see an alligator our sunning herself. I can't wait to go back.

This was our second time visiting the park. Last year we loved it, but this year it was even better. We saw an alligator, a wild hog feed her 3 babies, armadillos and deer, all in one visit!! If you enjoy nature, you will really enjoy this park. A piece of advise, wear comfortable shoes...you'll be doing a lot of... More

I love this park. Tons of trails for exploration. You can also rent bicycles to explore the park and there's also a tram that takes you through the park. They have music sessions in the summertime and in the fall where you can come out and enjoy great live music. There's also multiple picnic areas and a playground. This is... More

The state park is very close and has a nice loop drive with pull-offs at trailheads. The museum does a good job of telling the story of the CCC camps of the 1930's.
