You can zip through it in 15 minutes by car but don't. Pack food and beverage and stop at the many spots on the loop and take time to breathe and enjoy how Florida used to be. A fav place.

Walking Highlands Hammock is so relaxing. The scenery is lush and primordial. You can hear and sometimes see pigs,alligators, snakes, deer,and many different birds. I highly recommend going to see this wonderful park.

We drove around the park and walked the boardwalk trials. Great views of what the interior of Florida looked like before it was changed by agriculture and developments. Saw gators, birds and an armadillo.

Great local start park. Beautiful trails to walk, and lush surroundings. You can even see an alligator or two basking in the sun.

This is a very nice campground but it was constructed in the 30s by the CCC and so the electrical boxes are in some odd places. We had to visit the local Walmart and get a longer extension cord to get power. Then the cord...More

Just talked with a resource person. The on duty rangers phone number should be posted at the ranger station.

We were in a friends motor home that's well over 25 feet. Its around 35 feet. It was a fun place to stay for a few days. I'd call them just I case to be sure they have a lot available that youll fit it.
