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

We stopped by here for the night on our way to Orlando and were pleasantly surprised. At first glance, the park is nothing too special. But, if you explore a little further, you will see that it's a nice place to visit. Some of the RV sites are a bit rough, but others are paved, so ask when making a... More

We were exploring attractions in the panhandle and spent a half day at Falling Waters. We were told by the park ranger that there wouldn't be much to see because it had been so dry. I still paid the admission so that we could explore. It's a beautiful well maintained park. The waterfall trail is easily accessible. We were disappointed... More

The waterfall and pit below plus a few scattered sinkholes are pretty much the only real attractions at this park, but the waterfall is so weird and out of place that it was worth it for me. My wife and I were the only people at the waterfall at the time and it was a peaceful, slightly surreal experience. I... More

My wife and I recently went to Falling Waters with our daughter and her two children ages 5 and 8. There was a good play area for the kids, plenty of covered picnic tables,BBQ grills, and adequate restroom facilities.The walk to the waterfall was on a nice concrete and wooden walkway that had safety railings where needed. We picnicked and... More
