We spent much of the morning canoeing in the Zipprer canal in the park. It was very quiet and we saw lots of birds. The observation tower near Lake Kissimmee was cool too.

Four nights secured here @ Lake Kissimmee State Pk. campground. There are TWO loops, each with 30 well defined campsites. Paved roadways branch off to 'shell' surfaced sites. Most sites are amongst heavy vegitation of low palm fronds, live oak, and tall pines. Very nice....More

There are a lot of hiking trails, also a small marina, and fishing at the marina. Also a 3 story observation deck with the lake being pretty far away. A little park area for kids to play.

Very nice mostly covered trails. We see wildlife frequently, and the trail runs right behind the pasture of the cracker ponies! (They like to come up to visit...sometimes rather quickly!). Beautiful scenery and about a six mile trail. Ample parking and just a nice, easy...More

Our first experience at this park was exceptional. The park is beautiful and the campground is quiet and very well run. I've never seen such clean restrooms and showers.

Great access and easy paddling into Lake Kissimmee from the State Park. No bass caught on this trip but that's fishing. There is also fishing from the shore along the channel leading into the lake with picnic tables and lots of shade trees.
