Special Features:Highlands Hammock is one of Florida's oldest parks and is one of the earliest examples of grassroots support for environmental preservation. Concerned about plans to turn the hammock into farmland, local citizens acquired the property and pledged to protect it. When Florida's state park system was established in 1935, Highlands Hammock became one of the four original parks, and the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built a camp there as a base for development.
