Every year, we camp over New Year’s Eve at Highlands Hammock State Park. The secret is to avoid the family camp area at all costs and camp in the Primitive section! The campsites in the family area are right on top of each other. The primitive section; however, is amazing. And you can drive over to the family area if you really want a shower or flushing toilet.
There are some great trails in this park! Unfortunately, because of Hurricane Irma, my favorite Cypress Trail was closed. I could spend hours there taking pictures of reflections of the cypress trees in the mirror calm water. Next time!
