One of Florida's original four state parks, this beautiful tract
features a virgin hardwood hammock and a cypress swamp, through
which a boardwalk nature trail passes. More than 175 bird species
and other wildlife can be seen from eight short nature trails.
White-tailed deer, wild turkey, bobcats, pileated woodpeckers, and
red-shouldered hawks often appear near the 3.1-mile paved loop
drive. American swallow-tailed kites nest in tall pines near the
picnic area and often are seen swooping over the cypress swamp or
the hardwood hammock. There are plenty of wading birds, barred
owls, anhingas, alligators, and river otters to be observed by
Department of Environmental Protection
From Sebring, take U.S. Highway 27 south. Turn right on
County Road 634 and drive 2.4 miles to the park entrance.
