We recently stopped in the quaint town of Marianna, FL and toured the Florida Caverns that’s part of a state park. After climbing down 45 steps we began a 40-minute subterranean tour. A Florida Ranger served as our tour guide and led us along a 1,600 feet long path, periodically stopping and pointing out the beautiful formations housed in a... More

Very pretty and a great place for families. Unfortunately for us, we were there on one of the two days per week that the caverns are closed, but we did get to let the kids play at the playground area (which thankfully had restrooms!) and found the park to be worth the price of admission. Will have to go back... More

Grandparent friendly in that all ages can do this. Tour is about an hour easy walk except the few steep steps down into cave entrance and exit. Some stooped walking required of those over 5 feet tall. Nothing icky or frightening. Nice small museum and gift store.

Beautiful caverns! A must if you're in north Florida and in the Marianna area. Seeing the caverns made us forget about our nasty hotel. A must see.

Very enjoyable experience for young and old alike.... Worth the stay in our sucky hotel.... The park is still about 20 minutes, it is very well maintained and the staff were amazing and helped made the experience even more fun.

We spent 4 days at this park recently. The park ranger at check in was very nice. The caverns were beautiful (sneak to the back of the line and you can linger and look longer) tour guide(Adam?)was very nice. The gift shop prices were reasonable. Swimming hole is COLD,Munich a great relief from the Florida heat.

The park was a hidden surprise, was looking for something different and I love caves and caverns. The tour of the cavern was fun and our guide well informed gentleman. Cave was easy to navigate. Do recommend you get their by 8:45 to get the pass for the cave tour. The rest of the park was fun with a pretty... More

We didn't even know Florida had Caverns until we were exploring the Florida State Parks website. Intrigued we decided to make a weekend trip of it. It's located about 12 miles off of I-10 just outside of Marianna, Florida. The Caverns are a highlight, although smaller than those we've visited in Tennessee they were still impressive. They have some some... More

My husband didn't believe me at first when I told him FL had caves! (or the waterfall, for that matter). This is a wonderful state park not to be missed. We were there on a Sunday and entered the park at 11:15. We were told the next cave tour would leave at 11:30, so that worked out perfectly! Headed to... More
