|Redwic||Hours of Operation Not True|
|The official website containing information for Timms Hill County Park shows the Hours of Operation (i.e. the hours the park gate is open) as being 7:30 AM - 9:30 PM. However, this is not true. In advance of visiting this HP this past weekend, I contacted the Parks Department and found out the gatekeeper commonly closes the park gate by dusk. In fact, the gate even says "Open 7:30 - Dusk". If planning a visit to Timms Hill County Park and wanting to verify the hours the gate will be open, contact the Parks Department at (800)269-4505.|

|We "tackled" this summit on the date of this submission. All roads to the parking area are now paved. The summit register in the mailbox are now at the base of the lookout. |
We came from Ogema and directions were exact.

|I visited on 8/2/15. All the information was accurate as of that date. The registration log was missing. Not too surprising given the number of people that must visit this place.|
The road through the park is one way (and quite narrow). The entry is on the western side, i.e., the side closest to Ogema.

|My wife and I visited this past weekend (6/5/16).|
The sign pointing to the Timm's Hill trailhead (and very narrow, one-way road) is getting overgrown. Coming from the Tomahawk direction, the sign/road is just a short ways past Bass Lake and the quaint shop/restaurant there. From the Ogema direction, if you hit the quaint shop/restaurant and Bass Lake, you've gone too far.

|You mention that Timms Hill is the only state high point located in a county park, but Britton Hill, FL, is also inside a county park (Walton County's Lakewood Park). One of two out of fifty still makes it distinctive, but not unique.|
