Amble along an elevated walkway amidst an old-growth cypress swamp at Highlands Hammock State Park, one of Florida's oldest parks. Follow the Ancient Hammock trail to see an oak tree that is over 1,000 years old (possibly the oldest tree in the state). At the Florida Civilian Conservation Corps Museum you'll see interactive exhibits on the park’s construction. You can ride a bike along the trails or hike near dusk to see some deer. Along the swamp trail, watch for toads and turtles near the dark black water. You can also take advantage of the campground, basketball court, playground, and fire pits. Be sure to bring bug spray.

  • Beautiful nature park with wonderful walking trails. The swamp with the alligators was the best, be sure not to miss it. The staff was great and the museum is extremely interesting.

  • Overall the park is good and a good value. It has a nice family atmosphere with lots of tent camping. But we waited an hour and half to use the dump station and it was not even "rush hour" it was...

  • Three of us did tent camping and had a great time! We had a site that had electricity and water which was very convenient. Bathrooms were close by and were cleaned daily. We saw deer, raccoon, squirrels, and a variety of birds. Everyone was friendly and respectful. The trails were beautiful. We enjoyed finding fruit trees (oranges, tangerines, grapefruit) along the way. The convenient store had pretty much everything a normal person would need to survive a camping trip. We were impressed by the selection at the little store. Highly recommend this park!
  • Isn't it about time for some new pavement and lane markings?
