Falling Waters State Park hosts Florida's Highest Water Falls. Unfortunately, my visit occurred during a relative drought in Northern Florida so the flow was not very good. Still the short hike to the water falls is pleasant and the height of the tall sinkhole that the falls flow into is worth seeing. There are also other hiking trails in the... More

The waterfall didn't have much water because of the lack of recent rain, but it was still worth stopping to see. The trails and boardwalks were very nice. There were people swimming in the pond, but I personally would not swim in it due to possible alligators. It is a very peaceful and relaxing place to visit.

Beautiful, well maintained park. Routes were clearly marked. We only came for the waterfall (who knew Florida even has one?)so didn't go far on the trails. We saw s king snake, several birds and butterflies from the path. We also marveled at some of the other sinkholes. The peace was priceless. Just the sound if the fall and birds. Happily... More

My wife was born in Florida and I have lived in the state since I was eight years old (the early-1800's). Neither of us had ever been to Falling Waters. She had never been west of Tallahassee. We both love the waterfalls of the Blue Ridge Mountains and, having vacationed for years in North Georgia, we figured that Falling Waters... More

The waterfall is not too high rather a lil deep with a sinkhole.It was not a full flow but was nice to watch ,we took some pictures. We did not go... More

Arrived around 11:00 on Mothers Day and park was not too crowded. Facilities were all clean, pavilions were unoccupied and grounds are kept clean. Some of the trails to the sinkholes were closed due to repair but the trails to the waterfalls were open. We did not go to the camping area so I cannot comment on that. The swimming... More

Even though it did rain most of the day this trip was still worth while. The scenery is fantastic and the trails are family friendly, so even with little kids it's safe to go here. The colors in September are amazing by the way
