This is a great park, the trails and boardwalks are awesome. We hiked on most of the trails, enjoyed the swamp, beautiful trees, flowers and ferns and saw a few birds and an armadillo. This is the first Florida park, I did not see an alligator. Since we are visiting a lot of Florida's state parks, we had to visit... More

There were lots of trails to walk on and lots of interesting new things to discover. I have been 100% blind in one eye and 50% in the other and recently had surgery to correct that. I am now 20/20! Everything I see was simply amazing to me! The colors and size of some trees - and the paths across... More

Beautiful parks with lots of activities. Definitely recommend the tram ride. Make sure you go at 8 am to get your seat reserved. They fill up fast. We saw alligators, turtles, birds, deer and armadillo plus all the native plants and trees. A must stop while in this area

We first visited the 9,000-acre Highlands Hammock State Park 50 years ago before all the housing developments sprang up around it. But it is still the same wonderful park inside, where you can drive from walking trail to walking trail, some with boardwalks thru the cypress swamp portions. When our retired parents still lived nearby, this was our picnic destination... More

We were permitted to take an auto tour free, as long as we did not get out of the car. This was fine. we saw all we wanted to see. A lovely window on nature, the trees native to this area, as well as the wildlife and flora.

Our highschool class holds a mini reunion in the recreation hall. The hall has a nice kitchen allowing food preparation. The hall itself can be hated or cooled depending on the weather.

The CCC Museum is worth the price of admission alone. Then throw in the interesting trails and features and this park is one of Florida's best. This is a good starting place for hiking and biking the extensive Sebring bike trail. We stay nearby for the winter and visit here often.

Highlands Hammock State Park was built by WPA following the depression. There are exhibits showing how they lived and worked while recovering from the depression. The tram ride is somewhat tame but informative as well.

Amazing state park with wonderful hiking paths through Florida jungle. Great facilities for camping with a family. Wonderful, informative and interesting museum about FDR's CCC program (the Civilian Conservation Corps). The park guides were very helpful and knowledgeable.
