Visit Highlands County
A great page with things to do - art, cultural offerings as well as parks and nature.

Highlands County Parks & Nature
Hiking and biking can be found all over Lake Placid and the rest of the county. They are creating new multi-use trails all the time. Some of the best places to hike, bike and view wildlife are listed below:

Highlands Hammock State Park is an incredible place to visit, and a must see! Wildlife abounds and there is a wide variety of trails - some short and some longer and it's a fabulous place to ride bikes or take a guided tram tour.

Even closer to Lake Placid is Lake June In Winter State Park - right on the shores of Lake June. This is a beautiful park for hiking. There is a family of American Bald Eagles right on the shore in a stand of dead trees, easily visible by boat when approaching the park on Lake June. There is approximately 3 miles of pristine park shoreline on Lake June - and this will prevent development and preserve this area!

Archbold Station is an interesting place to visit to learn about the region's geology and ecology.

Ridge Rangers - Experience the Lake Wales Ridge - explore natural areas, meet new people, gain valuable experience and save species from extinction.

Area Boating & Fishing
The lakes are the undisputed number one attraction in Highlands County. We've caught many largemouth bass in several of the lakes in Lake Placid, Sebring & Avon Park. Melissa caught a 7-pounder not two weeks before I wrote this! We catch and release the bass because there is quite a bit of fishing, but many people eat them as well as the excellent and more plentiful panfish (specks).

There are several public fishing areas in the parks around the lakes. Bishop park is on Lake June Rd. and has great picnic facilities, boat ramps and a good dock and fishing pier. Lake June Ball Fields is a huge park off Deen Blvd. "behind" downtown Lake Placid. There are boat ramps, a swimming beach and a fishing pier. These are just a couple of the many parks found around our lakes. Some, however, such as Placid Lakes Park, are only for residents. Lake Jackson in Sebring has public ramps, as well as Lake Clay and most others - see any road map for a wide variety (and we suggest trying several lakes!).

Check out our Lake Chart, which provides more information on most area lakes.
