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

So it's not the greatest state park I've ever been to, but it's nice. If you're not far, I'd go and make an afternoon of it. $5 entry fee. Nice playground for the kids. Bring a picnic (there are picnic tables there) and have some lunch and go see the waterfall and sink holes. It's pretty with plaques telling you... More

I've lived in Florida my whole life and never knew this place existed! The waterfall and sinkholes are definitely worth the drive to Chipley. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful pine forest, very impressive sinkholes and a little butterfly garden. Ideal to spend a day with the family, but only if you are visiting the area or live nearby. Do not make a trip just to see the waterfall, because maybe you just see some drops of water . Very easy concrete walkway to the fall, but at the... More

There was nothing super exciting about this park for us. 2014, 08-08 Sinkholes, while neat to see... how many holes can you see in the ground? Kids would be easily bored unless geography was their interest. But, from a geological standpoint, it's neat to stop by and witness it. Definitely glad we stopped, but it would probably not be something... More

We weren't here very long due to the weather. Had a quick walk around the sinkholes, the waterfall had nearly dried up. Walked down to the lake, but it was a very brakish and the children didn't fancy swimming in there. Nothing else to do so we left.

This is a cute little state park. There's probably more to it than we saw, but what we saw we definitely enjoyed! At the time of our visit the waterfall was very minimal. You could barely see the water coming over, but it's amazing how it just disappears. There's no stream at the bottom! Crazy! Very easy boardwalk trail to... More

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.
