Welcome to Highlands Hammock State Park
Supporting a beautiful yet delicate ecosystem, central Florida’s Highlands Hammock possesses a unique and richly divergent collection of plant and animal life.
Highlands Hammock - with more rare and endemic species than any other Florida State Park - is a place where wilderness and history are preserved. Visitors can walk the trails where the Florida panther and black bear quietly pass beneath the ancient, towering oaks of a magnificent hydric hammock. Deer, alligators and a variety of birds frequent the park.
With its beautiful old-growth hammock and variety of habitats and wildlife species, this is ...the Real Florida at its best.
To see these natural wonders, hike any of our nine trails, including an elevated boardwalk through a cypress swamp. Make sure to travel our 3-mile bike loop, or take the tram for those who prefer to sit back and leisurely take it all in.
At the Civilian Conservation Corps Museum, visitors can experience the Great Depression and learn about the lives of the young men who built Florida’s eight CCC parks. The park has a significant number of New Deal era structures and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
