In addition to featuring many outdoor activities, Florida Caverns State Park is the only park in the state where you can tour a cave system. Rock formations inside the limestone caverns include elaborate stalagmites, stalactites, flowstones, and draperies. The park organizes guided tours of the caves during which you can learn about their history and gain additional appreciation for these geological wonders. Additionally, the Chipola River that runs through the park offers opportunities for fishing, boating, canoeing, and kayaking. The park has a network of hiking and equestrian trails, a concession and a playground area, and a nine-hole golf course. Both full-facility and youth campsites can be booked in advance. Cave tours are very popular; it's a good idea to reserve your ticket.

This place was absolutely the neatest place. The pictures don't do this place justice. You will have to go see the caverns for yourself to get the "full effect". The temperature was not as cool as I w... read more »

Great time for the entire family. We loved it and the kids had such a great time. The tour of the caves was splendid and we will plan to do again some day.
I approve. Good place to go. This is a hidden gem in the country. Lots of privacy, shady area, and the staff is awesome. This place is far off the beaten path and just an awesome place. Highly recommended that you take the cavern tour. It's worth the money, and not really expensive. When you're in the area eat downtown on State Road 90 at Jim's buffet. You will enjoy it. Home cooked food and a reasonable price. Buffet style or order from the kitchen .
I first visited the Caverns when I was in elementary school and when we moved closer to the Caverns, it was a place that I wanted to go back and visit again. This last visit was amazing and well worth your time. We took the guided tour into the Caverns and this is usually something that you only get to see in magazines or on websites. Going through each of the "rooms" added new features that we had not previously seen each one adding to the "wow" factor to the Caverns. Once the guided tour is over, there are multiple nature paths you can take to get back to the museum/store. Well worth the trip if you have the time.
Beautiful place! The caverns are amazing, as is the Bluff Trail! Camped in the horse camp area and it was beautiful and peaceful. The swimming hole, Blue Spring hole, was very muddy looking, for some reason. Will definitely camp here again!
Went to renew wedding vows in the wedding room at the Caverns and spent two days camping. Bill Sellers was our guide during the renewal and he was absolutely awesome! He was funny, informative and took time to answer our questions. We had a wonderful time, Thank you so much Bill! Park Rangers, Frank, Billy, Chris, Kelly and Amanda were also very helpful and kind. The Blue Spring swimming hole was a lot of fun. The only problem we had was when you took a shower the shower heads sprayed different ways and when someone else took a shower at the same time, the water would go from warm to cold and you had to wait for it to get warm again. Not a huge deal just a little irritating, but I would definitely go back again!
This is actually a great park to explore and camp at. There are a lot of activities in the park, and they had a ton of information about nearby attractions, local events, history, science, etc! We stayed at the primitive camp site, which is right across from a spring that was fun to swim in. It had a water spicket at the site, and the showers were clean and even had skylights so you can see the sky and trees above you, which was beautiful. Only problem was the campsites are very close together, and they had bright lights on all night. If you are able, maybe reserve your site and the one right next door :p
