Alex Creager at Kissimmee Prairie

Thank you for your interest in Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park. This is a very special, important, and beautiful place. We are happy to welcome you to the largest remaining patch of Florida dry prairie, one of the most species rich ecosystems on the continent.

As the temperature drops we are moving into prime camping season. Whether you’re interested in photographing the abundant wildlife, taking in a spectacular view of the night sky, or riding a bike down the scenic park drive, there’s a deep connection to natural Florida for everyone to find here.

If you catch me sitting in a rocking chair at the visitor’s center on the best porch in Florida, as I frequently am, feel free to sit with me and we’ll tell some stories and talk about what makes this place so incredible and unique.
