We got there early in the morning and had the place to ourselves. Bliss. It's a lovely quiet peaceful park, lots of birds and wildlife. The hiking trails are short and easy and well maintained. The waterfall was in full flow, very impressive. Definitely worth the entrance fee and as much time as you can spare.

We stayed at the campground for 3 nights and it is immaculate! The restrooms and campsites were very clean and had everything you could imagine. My only issue was the "campground hosts" came around saying to keep my dog quiet. If they would stop walking by with their dog, she wouldn't bark! LOL! The trails are nice and well kept.... More

Even if you only have a little time for a walk, this is a nice park. It has three nice walks from the parking lots and one from the campground. They are all connected. The park is currently working to lengthen the board walk. The waterfall volume changes after a rain. Sometimes it is just a trickle. One thing to... More

Yes, indeed there is one and this is the tallest in the state. The hiking trail was nice along a boardwalk as well as a primitive path. The waterfall was a nice surprise especially being a FL native and never coming across one here before.

My family and I all enjoyed our day at Falling Waters. The park is beautiful. We enjoyed hiking the walking trails. The swimming area is nice. We look forward to returning to camp.

We need to come back when the water is a bit stronger, though - in December it's more of a trickle than a waterfall, but nice just the same. We walked a couple of the trails and then left. Nice place, would like to return.

My husband and I stopped here briefly while traveling down I-10. I had no idea this place existed but we wanted to stop and stretch our legs for a minute and it was so close to the interstate. We paid $5-$10 to get in the park. We only drove to the parking lot for the waterfall trail, took the short... More

As keen photographers we could not pass the chance of visiting the waterfall which falls into a sink hole at this park. As per usual it was a beautiful sunny hot day but the tree covered makes the walking that bit easier. We used the toilets which were very clean and well kept. We then followed the walkway to the...

Stopped here on a whim while driving along I 10 during August 2013.. Very nice little state park. Part of the trails were closed for construction, but the sinkhole waterfall was very cool. Didn't spend much time here, but my kids were kinda impressed, and that's hard to do nowadays.

I honestly felt crying when we saw the waterfall. Where we are from is very abundant with waterfalls, and from what I have understood this is the largest falls in Florida. I felt homesick on seeing the waterfall even though it is beautiful and lush around it and an interesting geological formation. Definitely I would return to the park. It... More
