The water fall is exaggerated. Touted as "Florida's Tallest" is misleading, because it is not high--rather, it falls deep below ground-level, into an impressive sink-hole the water has carved over thousands of years. Nevertheless, it is a scenic fall, though only a small stream of water, which averages only about three feet wide--more or less or none, depending on area... More

I understand the water varies in the falls. I'd recommend going after a heavy rain. Nice walkways in the park.

Small and worth stopping. This park is small and well kept. It has a lot of beautiful natural areas including the amazing deep waterfall. The hillsides are rolling with pines and shrubs. A small swimming area and playground make this a nice stop for a family for a few hours at least. Park attendants are very kind.

My husband and I drove 4 1/2 hours to stay at Falling Waters as I'd heard about it for years from a former co-worker. Our site #19 was a pull through, and as we were pulling in, workers were tidying it up and adding more sand to the fire pit. It was cold the 3 days we were there, too... More

This state park is conveniently located a few miles off Interstate 10. Is it a very small park with about 25 camp sites. We were in #21 and would not recommend it. It was small and not very level. The campground was on about half full when we were there. The fall water featured was a pretty deep sink hole... More

Neat waterfall! The park was very clean and the walk ways were great! It was a chilly day, but we enjoyed the fresh air.

The waterfall is worth the side trip off of I-10. Flow was good so it looked pretty amazing. They are in the middle of some construction projects in the park so some trails were closed. Always worth the stop. Havent tried the campground yet.

Decided to take a little side trip and ended up at Falling Waters State Park. Beautiful place. Sinkholes and falls were beautiful. A little disappointed about not seeing the lakes area and some trails were closed for repairs. Hopefully will be done in the spring. I'll go back and give an update.

This is a great camp ground, the waterfall is beautiful. My family camps here often it's becoming a second home to us. The photos are awesome too.

Our decision to stop here was primarily one of logistics (distance from I-10, location along our route, low cost of $5), but we were really surprised at how much fun our family had here in the 3 hours we spent at the park. It was our kids' first waterfall, and while it wasn't a roaring rapid (seasonal fluctuations of water... More
