We’ve been here 3-4 years in a row. Some beautiful sites and just a few that feel more like an oversized parking spot unfortunately. Restrooms are always clean. Regarding trailed, many trails but woefully in need of signage. Wish those that enjoy this park would...More

It was a nice park. They do have camping and the spots are very nice. Most were very short though. They have horse trails and hiking. The trails looked nice, but I haven't had a chance to hike any yet. Also have a Marina and...More

Enjoyed our visit to Kissimmee State Park, very peaceful during a weekday, able to sit and watch the wildlife as well as the good views from the lookout tower.

This park is very nice, peaceful and well maintained. If you like nature, there are a lot of things to do for you and your kids...or just relax, be lazy, and enjoy the day and scenery. Some of the activities are: camping, fishing, kayaking, horseshoe...More

I am not a camper, but when a cracker cowboy steps into this park on the weekend, it becomes an 1841 cow camp. Not a lot to do, but yet a lot of history and don't step on the wildlife. You have miles of hiking...More

Was looking for some woodsy-style camping, and this park fit the bill. The campsites were reasonably secluded, with water and electric hookups, and a clean shower house. The park itself didn't have a lot to offer. There are three main trails, but most of the...More

I don't think there are a lot of bike trails there. All of the roads are paved and great for walking or riding your bike. Check out Santos in Ocala. There is an rv park there and right next to it is a big bike trail.
