Getting Outdoors

Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park is known for the wide expanse of dry prairie that the park seeks to preserve. The prairie is the largest remaining tract of dry prairie in the state of Florida. Many endangered or threatened species live in the prairie, and as prairies disappear in Florida, they become even more threatened. Don't forget to pack the binoculars. Birdwatchers often book an RV rental in south Florida just to see the rare species of birds in the grasslands.

In addition to watching birds, photographers and astronomers can visit the park to marvel at the night sky.
