Arrived around 11:00 on Mothers Day and park was not too crowded. Facilities were all clean, pavilions were unoccupied and grounds are kept clean. Some of the trails to the sinkholes were closed due to repair but the trails to the waterfalls were open. We did not go to the camping area so I cannot comment on that. The swimming... More

Even though it did rain most of the day this trip was still worth while. The scenery is fantastic and the trails are family friendly, so even with little kids it's safe to go here. The colors in September are amazing by the way

Stopped here on the way to the coast, reserved way in advance. Beautiful, peaceful park, cool weather, easy hike on boardwalk trails. Very well maintained camp and trails. Small swimming lake, sink holes and waterfall. Not far from town and I 10E...so it is a good stop over. Stayed here in a 30' fifth wheel. Would camp here again!

Beautiful discovery of Florida's longest waterfall! Great state park that is not too big, but still has all the options for hiking, water activities, camping, etc. Very interesting to learn about the sink holes and limestone.

We have lived in this area for 30+ years and had never visited here. The waterfalls was not at full bore but was still beautiful. Highest falls in Florida!!!!

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.
