Experience the Natural Side of Kissimmee

When you step out in Kissimmee, you realize this is where the outdoors becomes The Great Outdoors. (And you better pack a lunch, because there’s quite a bit of it!) Dozens of lakeside parks offer picnicking areas, playgrounds, walking paths, boat ramps, and camp sites, in addition to hosting a variety of events throughout the year that everyone in the family is sure to enjoy.

Public Parks

Thanks to the parks and recreation dedication to Lake Kissimmee State Park, and all our Florida State Parks, finding adventure and amazing discoveries really is as easy as a walk in the park.

It really is a challenge to drive a few miles in Kissimmee and Osceola County without hitting water. Even better, our water is full of fish. From Lake Kissimmee State Park, Lake Rosalie and Tiger Lake to East and West Lake Toho, Big Toho Marina and East Lake Fish Camp, a day on the water here is a day you won't soon forget.

Venture out to Lake Tohopekaliga—Lake Toho to the locals, and one of the largest lakes on the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes in Central Florida—and you’re fishing where the pros fish. For bass anglers, few places compare to the bountiful water near Orlando. And even if hooking a trophy bass isn’t your goal, the lakes around Kissimmee are also home to a healthy population of bluegill, crappie and catfish.

Boat Ramps

The Kissimmee Chain of Lakes is the headwaters of the Florida Everglades. With a wide variety of parks and marinas located around our beautiful Central Florida lakes, public access for boating and fishing is easily available at a dock near you. From Lake Kissimmee to Lake Toho, the water is calling you to come out and play.
