Discover Highlands Hammock State Park, FL

With a diverse range of native flora and fauna, excellent hiking trails, and more wildlife watching opportunities than you can poke a stick at, Highlands Hammock State Park is one of the treasures of Florida's state parks system.

Located less than five miles west of Sebring, this 9,251-acre park was created in 1931 to protect a unique and fragile ecosystem. It's home to more rare species than any other park in the state, and it's also well-known as the perfect destination for an RV camping getaway.

Keep reading to find out what there is to do in Highlands Hammock State Park and how to plan the perfect camping trip.

Getting Outdoors

Highlands Hammock State Park encompasses more than 9,000 acres of old-growth hammock, wetlands, and more, providing a diverse habitat for many different creatures of all shapes and sizes. As a result, it's a great spot to visit for any wildlife or nature lover.

Bird watchers are in for a treat in the park, with the chance to spot a huge range of species. Warblers are a common sight on the trails, while wading birds herons and egrets frequent cypress swamp. Barred owls, red-shouldered hawks, and many more species either live in or migrate through the area, so don't forget your binoculars.

Feathered creatures aside, there's plenty of other wildlife to get up close and personal with. Depending on the time of year and even the time of day, you could expect to see anything from a bobcat or alligator to a white-tailed deer or even a Florida panther.

The best way to see the park's diverse fauna and plant life is to explore its hiking trails and boardwalks. There are nine trails in the park, ranging in length from 975 to 3,000 feet. Best of all, eight of those trails are easy to access from the loop road.

The Alexander Blair Big Oak Trail is a popular starting point for campers, and this short hike takes you to a magnificent oak tree that's some 1,000 years old. If you're keen to lay eyes on an alligator, you might prefer tackling the Cypress Swamp Trail. Whichever trails you choose to explore, make sure you carry plenty of water — not to mention insect repellent.
