I publish a magazine, Marshrider Magazine, and am always on the lookout for Old Florida
locations. I live in Tallahassee. I had heard of Highland Park
Fish Camp and traveled down there for a couple of days to get
material for articles.
The staff went out of their way to tell me neat places for photos
and went with me to explain some of the uses of water plants
such as the Spatterdock Lily. They could not have been more
I stayed in one of the cabins, sat on the screened in front
porch in the rocking chair and thoroughly enjoyed an evening
in the woods.
It was great to see local folks bring their kids out to the fishing pond
to catch and release fish from the stocked pond.
I would recommend this experience and Highland Park Fish Camp
to families, couples or anyone. Old Florida is vanishing before our
eyes and this is one of the few places left to immerse yourself in
that long-ago world.
