As the sign at the entry warns you, the amount of water going over the falls is dependent on the recent rainfall in the area. Despite recent rains, the amount of water was less that we expected. Nevertheless, there was some and it's long drop into a sinkhole was impressive. The walkway to the falls was very easy to negotiate.... More

Enjoyed the trail to the water fall. Although the falls at the time we visited was just a trickle, the sink holes were interesting to see. Campgrounds in the park as well. Covered picnic areas and rest rooms.

My boyfriend and I took a trip to Falling Waters just today, and it was truly a beautiful place! The nature/wildlife is amazing. So glad we went, no one should miss out!

Rode out to Falling Waters while our room cooled off. It was a nice state park. Took the hike around the waterfall. Nice board walk. Looked like the swimming was good too. May come back here to camp.

stayed at the campground for a night and had a really nice time. Upon arrival the staff was SO friendly! We cam back later to buy a bundle of fire wood and chatted with the park ranger for a while who was also very friendly and welcoming. Went for a run in the morning along the road with beautiful scenery.... More

Could not see the big sink hole; path/trail was roped off with "danger" signs. Nice picnic area (with a few sings) by the bathrooms/parking lot.

This state park is a good family visit if traveling thru the Chipley area. There are several sinkholes you can see as well as a pretty but small waterfall. All are viewed from a walk path. This is the only waterfall in Florida and is worth seeing and taking photos. The views, nature, flowers and animals are beautiful. The trail... More

Falling waters boasts the only waterfall in Florida - at least some of the time! If you arrive in the rainy season, especially after a recent downpour, there will be an impressive display as the water falls over the lip of a deep and narrow sink hole and splashes down 100' below the edge. If the weather has been dry,... More

Awesome waterfall, a main walking trail closed due to a large tree over the path. (Mother Nature doing her thing). Hot and humid morning, not much else to do here. Very cool to visit a waterfall and the largest caverns in the state( Florida Cavern's) in the same weekend.

This is a great place for a family picnic and a hike. The waterfall does get bigger when it rains, the very deep (100 feet) cylindrical sink hole has its own unique microclimate and flora. This spot has a rich history: They drilled for oil here, there was a famous plant nursery here, a famous, mysterious murder happened here and... More
