The Myakka River State Park is one of Florida?s largest and oldest state parks. It is located at one of the state?s most ecologically diverse sites, the Myakka River, and thus has been a center of preservation and environmental education for decades.

The park itself covers a large area of the river and two lakes thus opening opportunities for boating, fresh water fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. There are also hiking trails that go through dry prairies which are a rare thing to find in the state of Florida. Camp grounds in the park are certified as full facility but primitive camp sites are also available for the more adventurous. Palm log cabins build by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930?s have been renovated for modern comfort and are now available for lodging.
