Rock formations inside the limestone caverns include elaborate stalagmites, stalactites, flowstones, and draperies.

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.

  • Went here for vacation. I've been to caverns in the Midwest and Pennsylvania, but this experience was unforgettable. The tour guide was amazing and the cavern it's self was in pristine condition. I can't wait to go back. The price for the tour was very reasonable. I think next time I'm going on the V.I.P. tour. Florida parks are a great way to spend your vacation.
  • Cool place to visit. The tours happen often and our guide, Brooke, had a great dry sense of humor that seemed to fit a tour of a cave. The small museum is just big enough to occupy you until the next tour starts. The trails looked great, although we didn't really explore them this time.
  • Beautiful park! I went camping with a group. The flashlight tour lasted about 2 hours and was fantastic. The area and facilities were very clean. There is a swimming area at the springs head and we enjoyed canoeing on the river.
  • Wanted to show my boys (4 &7) some caves. This was a small cave but nice. Easy for kids walk through and the tour guide kept them engaged. Wish my leg was feeling better, we would have done some of the hikes.
  • Love this park, the cavern tour was well worth the trip. Enjoyed getting to see the natural spring as well. Pet friendly park. Definitely worth your while to visit this park. We have been several times through the years.
