Maybe now the time is right to get away from our groundhog day-to-day and share fun times with friends, outdoors in the fresh air, with some music, mirth and merriment! Just like old times, well... with a twist! Like lime in a Corona! If you're interested, please book a site ASAP - they are going fast!

EVENT REDUX! We had originally planned to meet up this past spring, but... we all found out what happens when we make plans! As this "dramatic" year comes to an end, let's regroup to relish in the wonders of nature and reflect, with gratitude, upon our our strength and resiliency, our faith, our spirit, and all of the powers of the universe that brought us through, and brought us together... as friends. ❤
Highlands Hammock is one of Florida's oldest parks, known for its breathtaking biodiversity and thousand-year-old oak trees. An elevated boardwalk, with a historic catwalk, traverses cypress swamp, and visitors can observe gators, deer, bear, boar, owls, turtles, birds... a plethora of native fauna and flora, throughout the 9,000 acre park!
Highlands Hammock boasts a three mile, paved bike loop; nine, short but sensational nature trails, and a museum showcasing the history of the Civilian Conservation Corps - a public work relief program that operated between[masked], and was dedicated by FDR to conserve our natural resources. CCC volunteers built wildlife refuges, watersheds, bridges and campgrounds, and ultimately shaped our glorious, state park system.
There are guided tours available, and a 1.5 hour tram tour which allows visitors access to restricted areas and a unique opportunity for an up-close view of the vast array of wildlife that reside in this picturesque park.
In addition to camping, biking, hiking, and wildlifing... the homemade ice cream at the Hammock Inn cannot be beat!
There's bound to be lots of laughs, fun with friends, and fire during this weekend in the woods! We hope you can make it!
