Walking through a peaceful park atmosphere is a great way to connect with yourself and with nature. Sometimes, we find ourselves getting caught up in the hassle of everyday life. But if you’re looking for the perfect destination to get away, Highlands Hammock State Park is the place to be.

Park History

Highlands Hammock State Park is one of Florida’s oldest parks. Opening to the public in 1931, this park was established when local citizens came together to promote the hammock as a candidate for national park status. During the Great Depression, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) developed additional park facilities and the beginnings of a botanical garden.

Activities at Highlands Hammock State Park

Many visitors enjoy bicycling the scenic 3-mile loop drive or hiking along the park ́s nine trails. An elevated boardwalk traverses an old-growth cypress swamp. For equestrians, there is an 11-mile, day-use trail. Other popular activities include picnicking as well as ranger-guided tours of the park. Highlands Hammock State Park also offers a full-facility campground and a youth/group tent campground. A recreation hall is available for rental, as are several picnic pavilions. Make a stop at the museum which showcases the history of the CCC.
