  • Such an interesting geologic site in an otherwise drab landscape. Shame on you State of Florida and Park management for not fixing the stairs down to the sink hole within a month after the hurricanes.  more »
  • Nice leisurely walk. I didn't take the stairs, just the trail. Enjoyed all the birds and the nice weather.  more »
  • Natural sinkhole worth seeing. Not only interesting, but cheap. A place you can also utilize to exercise just going up and down the stairs of the sinkhole. There's also a hiking trail and a waterfall.  more »

  • Interesting geological site. The trip to the bottom is pretty easy, but coming back up is a little more strenuous. Small pool at the bottom with a few small springs emptying into it. The walking path that winds around the sinkhole is really nice, quiet, serene. Good place to walk your dog.
  • Nice place to visit. Bring a camera and good walking shoes. Plan to spend a few hours. Best to have a guided tour the first time.
  • This is definitely a park to visit if you love nature. The staircases to go down to the sinkhole are currently close for repair, as it was affected by the hurricane. There is a TV showing and telling the story and legend of this place all the day long, which I thought was very captivating.
  • Great, except the boardwalk was closed from hurricane damage. So a little disappointing not being to go to the bottom. But, you can't control mother nature. I will have to make another trip.
  • The milhopper is so cool! It was closed when we got there due to storm damage. I hope they can get it open soon.
