  • I enjoyed the park. The trails were really nice paved and elevated wooden boardwalks. A lot of cool geological things to look at. If in the area, it is worth a look see.  more »
  • We stopped by Falling Waters on our recent panhandle excursion. But unfortunately we were met by crowds from the local heritage festival. But since we came from over 600 miles away, we tried to suck i...  more »
  • I was so excited to see the big water falls. I just did not realize it was possible in Florida! Really neat sink holes around too. Enjoyed the walking trail.  more »
  • (Warning: Young Tampa Bay adults in for the weekend) We came here strictly to view the SINK HOLES AND WATERFALL—nothing else. Both these natural features demand attention and make you feel like YOU’RE NOT IN FLORIDA at all. The waterfall is surprisingly big (CALL AHEAD TO LEARN the waterfall flow rate because sometimes it can just be a trickle). The sinkholes are mysterious yet beautiful in that way. Despite it being a holiday weekend with good weather, we arrived in the afternoon and THERE WAS BARELY ANYONE WALKING AROUND. We only saw five others during our visit yet never crossed paths with them.
  • We booked a tent campsite online and arrive late in the evening. We were shocked to find electrical outlets (pun intended), water, fire circle, and picnic tables, and even large poles in the ground to hang hammocks from! Bathrooms are easily found as is the swimming hole. The waterfall would have been awesome if I didn't learn there channels were dug into it in the past to divert grey water from oil drilling some hundred years ago. Still nice to water. There's poles that instruct you how to take a photo and upload it to the ecologists that record the effects of controlled burns over time. (Don't forget the timestamp!). On Sunday morning there was a religious service that we opted out of but seemed like nice people. We camped out here, walked and ran some trails before going to the Caverns park. 9/10 only because of the sad story about oil refuse but that's not enough to take off a star because the park is actually gorgeous.
  • Super cute place to hike for the day. Water fall is pretty cool to see. Not as majestic as you would Invision, but really neat in context. Swimming areas and both wood and concrete walkways make this place a pleasant way to spend the day.
  • We go camping here at least 5 times a year and we love it! Family friendly and laid back!
  • This is a really awesome park.. I got married there and the staff did everything they could to make my day the best... Ranger Jacob was really nice and helped with anything he could... The water fall was amazing and its a really beautiful park... Thank you to all the staff members that helped us... I would recommend this place to anyone.
