This was out first stay in a State Park and it was a very pleasant surprise. Facility was well staffed with friendly, helpful rangers. The RV park was clean and well laid out with hard surface road and level compacted gravel sites. The short entry was narrow, although quite adequate for a single rig of any size (but no passing)....

We were shocked that this park was only 1/4 full, even though we were there during the week. It is quiet with several interesting nature trails, an interpretive centre, gift shop, and the cave tours (we did not do the tour, so can't comment). The park is well maintained and comfort stations are large, bright, and clean. The showers are... More

I already knew about the caverns and new I wanted to go visit myself. We made a quick stop by the park and took the tour. The kids (9 & 11) and us enjoyed so much. It was just mesmerizing!!!! Mother Nature outdid herself in this one! If you are in the area or within driving distance GO! You will... More

Found this treasure just off the highway in Mariana, FL. Yes, caverns in the Florida Panhandle! What a wonderful time my wife and I had. This is so easy to get to, yet feels so deep in the woods. It's an excellent outdoor adventure. It's a group guided tour starting with a 60 ft staircase. The cavern has beautiful stalagmites... More

Took tour of caverns for the first time in about ten years. It was well worth the $8 admission fee. The guide, Edward, was well informed and very pleasant. The caverns (not caves as Edward explained) are fantastic and beautiful. Be prepared for a moderate walk with lots of stooping in the caverns. The park was in the peak of... More

We often see the signs as we pass through marianna to destin or houston but never made time to stop. I am glad we did it was a wonderful cave system with a great trail to walk and photo nature.

Was looking for something to do while in the area and since I'm from MO, a state with so many caves, I wanted to check out what this cave had to offer. It's located inside a wonderful park that offers various types of camping, hiking trails, swimming spring, floating and canoeing, horseback riding, picnic areas and of course the cave.... More

We made the 4 hour drive from Jacksonville, FL to camp overnight and tour the caverns the next day. The place seems to be really popular, as 2 weeks prior to booking a campsite, there was only one spot left. We reserved tent/RV site #1 in the Blue Hole Loop and it was a great spot. Our campsite was very... More

I tent-camped here with a small group of friends. The park has 3 tent sites (water only) located away from the RV campground and they are perfect. There's a nice bathroom with hot showers which serves just these 3 tent sites plus an equestrian site nearby. You can fall asleep listening to the many owls who live there calling back... More
