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

Went here to fish although water level was somewhat low at this time and didn’t catch a thing I thoroughly enjoyed myself with friends and family. Quiet, clean and beautiful.

This is an exceptional state park. The habitat is in great shape due to frequent burning. The trails are a great example of flatwoods. The dock area, children’s play area and observation tower area has something for everyone.

Kissimmee State Park is a lovely preserve etched with plenty of natural habitat for the hiker, biker, driver, boater, or motorcylist. The real Florida can be explored here. We came upon this treat while out exploring and were happy to find it tucked away. It...More

Trails are quite lengthy (miles). They are well maintained and little if any sand. There actually is a business that does segue tours (or was last time I went). Park office has maps of trails as well as detailed information... More
