  • Drove into park on 1/13/18. Sign stating steps wiped out from Irma. I did not want to pay $4. So I did not stay. I would recommend going when the steps into sinkhole are rebuilt. This is only reason w...  more »
  • Just plan beautiful. I went there as a kid before the wooden stairs but much easier to now get up and down with them. Recommend to anyone wanted to just get out in nature!  more »
  • The park has many natural wonders created by God. It gives you a good overview of how nature works. Time has changed little, yet time has created a place to contemplate how the forces of nature can ch...  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.
