This is a nice nature hike, the bath to see the waterfall is a boardwalk and there is another hike that is some boardwalk and some sand, woods, etc. It is all well maintained. What did bother me is the lower access to falls is closed because of some broken planks and even though there was a gate up and... More

As with all Florida state parks you really need to reserve your stay well ahead of time. Somehow we lucked out and got a site when we arrived. The site (#1) was very clean and near the restrooms and the play ground was right behind us. We arrived later but had enough time to "hike" (walk really) to the waterfall... More

It's the biggest waterfall in Florida. If you've seen others, you might not be impressed, but if you're driving past the area it's worth a quick stop. Go after it rains to see the most water flowing! The park itself has some other trails, camping, etc, but if you just want to stop and see the waterfall it's a cool... More

New Year's Day was a bit dreary but due to the recent rains the waterfall was roaring. The park is very easy to get to off I10. They have done a fantastic job installing wooden walkways and staircases in and around the waterfall. There is also plenty of signage explaining the geography and history. The waterfall is a short ,under... More

After reading the reviews, I wasn't expecting much. We had been driving for a while and thought it would be nice to get out and walk around. The trail was easy to walk and offered some interesting sites. We saw a couple of snakes and fox squirrel! The sink holes took my stomach to begin with. :) The lake was... More

$4 for single person. the campground is off to the right. keep going straight to the parking lot. signs for waterfall. nice peaceful quiet. boardwalks were nice although some were under repair. it had rained a few days before so the waterfall was pretty.
