We visited with family on 1/15/2017. We had a large group, which was accommodated by a picnic pavilion. The bathrooms were very clean. The scenery makes for beautiful back drops for pictures. The view from lookout tower was beautiful, I have submitted a photo of the view. We also saw 2 deer on the way out. Others in our party... More

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.

First camping trip to Lake Kissimmee State Park, visited Park New Years Weekend 2017 (12/30/2016-1/2/2017), campground was full but very peaceful with huge sites and large natural breaks between campsites, you do not even hear your neighbors, lots of pathways to very well kept bath houses. Park has small store with daytime hours, nice marina, boat ramps were busy! Plenty... More

We spent New Year's Eve here and had a blast! From the observation tower we watched the sun set and then returned (at the recommendation of a park ranger) later on to see the stars. It was incredible! We could see fireworks from a distance and were thrilled to enjoy the tranquility. Campsites were awesome! Size was beyond all expectations,... More

My husband and I have stayed at Lake Kissimmee State Park three times in the last year. It is by far one of our favorites. Nice big camp sites. The wild life is awesome. This has, by the cleanest bath houses ever and convenient. Met some really nice folks too. Will definitely go there again.

Camped here over thanks giving weekend. The Park is Beautiful with great hikes, a handy concession stand, docks, playground, observation tower and pavilion. The Campsites are very nice, most were huge and with some privacy. The Showers and toilets were very clean. Would be my favorite State Park if it wasn't for the airboats! So just to be clear, the...

A lovely place to see Florida country and wildlife. If you like a good hike then I can thoroughly recommend this park, there are various trails from easy to difficult so it should suit anyone.

If you're looking for a place to unwind, you'll find that place at Kissimmee State Park. Picnicking, camping, hiking, fishing, or just relaxing--this place has it all. There is also a small store on the premises staffed with smiling faces. If you're looking for a break from the "rat race," try Kissimmee State Park.

Great trails to walk on, beautiful trees. plenty of places to picnic. You can rent canoes to go on the lake. Plenty of scenery, many different birds to see and an all around good place to go with the family for the day. Also has a campground and RV hookups if you would like to stay the night. Great park

This park is a hidden gem in the state park system. Each camper space is private and shady. The park is a beautiful eco system of the original piney woods of Florida. We saw so many wild animals, and birds. There is access to the lakes for fishing, and the marshes for bird watching. No ambient light at night, so... More
