Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park, Kissimmee Area
- Rare opportunity to witness Florida’s most endangered plants and species
- Tranquil retreat away from the busy tourist attractions of Kissimmee
- Enjoy hiking trails, swimming, ranger tours, and bike trails
Get away from the hustle and bustle of Kissimmee’s more famous attractions with a relaxing day trip to Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park. The adventures begin from the moment you arrive as you drive along the five mile road into the Preserve. Take in the sweeping grasslands, keep your eye out for Florida’s precious birds, and enjoy the remoteness of this very special State Park.
Upon arriving you’ll have 54,000 acres to explore. Walk the nature trails, home to endangered plants and species, bike along the wild forest roads, or take a ranger-led tour of the more remote areas of the park. Birdwatching is another must - with a number of rare species found in the park including the endangered Florida grasshopper sparrow.
Come evening, the magic continues with stargazing at Kissimmee Prairie's perfect location. With the clear, unpolluted skies, you’ll be able to spot Jupiter, Saturn and dozens of star constellations, all clearly visible in the night sky.
