The Osceola County Parks Commission cordially invites you to our pleasant little center of the state. Spend a weekend, spend a week, or spend the summer.
We are making strides at becoming the best park system we can be. We offer clean, well maintained facilities and grounds; friendly, helpful staff; great swimming and fishing and an exciting variety of other recreational activities that vary from park to park.
The Osceola County Parks are not supported by a yearly tax appropriation, but must rely instead on camping and vehicle permits that you, the park user, pay to enter and enjoy our parks.
We hope to see you soon at one or all of your Osceola County Parks.
