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

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
