Lake Kissimmee State Park has something for history buffs and nature lovers alike! Home to a variety of beautiful and unique wildlife, visitors at this former Florida cow camp can expect to see white-tailed deer, bald eagles, sandhill cranes, turkeys, and even bobcats. Located on the shores of lakes Kissimmee, Tiger, and Rosalie, there are countless recreational outdoor activities that groups and individuals can embark on. Enjoy boating, canoeing, and fishing in the picturesque lakes, or take in the views while you hike over 13 miles of scenic trails to observe and study the abundant plant and animal life. There are also six miles of trail opened to horseback riding and amenities such as shaded picnic areas, full-facility camping areas, and outdoor pavilions. The park's seclusion and distance from light pollution allows campers to take in dark skies and stargaze. For those looking to learn about some of Florida's history, your more into experiencing history, the park now offers a 1876 first person interpretive Cow Camp where attendees can see what it was like to live as a Florida Cow Hunter in the late 19th century.
