Nice place for a Walk

This is not a big park or a spectacular natural wonder, but it is a nice place to take a walk in the natural beauty of Northwest Florida.

Great place for hiking and camping! Unfortunately, the waterfall has run dry in Aug 2015. The park is definitely worth the trip!

We visited on a weekday. A small park with offerings of trails, campsites, fishing (with a license), and picnic. We saw lovely native orchids as we followed the boardwalk. Take care to not slip on stairways to the waterfall. Unfortunately the ranger told us there would not be a waterfall that day due to lack of rain. Be sure to... More

Must see state park. Has many different enjoyments at this park, including hiking, waterfall, swimming, child play area, restrooms available, etc. We can't wait to come back. Great place to take photos as well. At only $5 a vehicle, this is a steal for such gorgeous nature.

We were staying in Marianna and had visited FL Caverns State Park and this was only 30 minutes away. Unfortunately the water was not flowing, but the sinkhole and boardwalks were still beautiful. I wish we had more time to explore it.

Excellent place to visit. My husband, toddler and myself truly enjoyed our time visiting this park. Many shaded areas with benches to rest during a hot Florida summer. Trails, waterfall,swimming area, playground - Highly recommend.

On the day we went the waterfall was not more than a drizzle, but you could get a feel for the effect. The sinkholes were lovely and there was a really easy trail walkway around them. The foliage was gorgeous native wildflowers which I really enjoyed. There were other trails that were longer too, but I didn't try those out.

Just got back from this nice clean, quite park. Campsites were well kept with water and power. Showers/bathrooms clean with hot water. The campground host was very friendly. The sinkholes had a nice boardwalk path mostly in the shade and the main attraction....the highest waterfall in florida....was a pretty cool site to see, most of the time it's dry but... More

I already knew the waterfall wasn't running, but we wanted to check it out anyway. Only $5 per car to get in. Nice restrooms and kiddie play area. My kids loved the butterfly garden at the entrance of the trails. The sinkhole the waterfall falls into is breathtaking. My entire family thought it was amazing despite the waterfall being dry....

Visited for the waterfall. No water was flowing due to lack of rain. Area was still very pretty. Several sink holes and a nice wooden pathway. Pay at gate $5 car. Guide did tell us no water was flowing but we went anyway. Restrooms and picnic areas as well as a swimming spot. Nice park.
