Most of the reviews I had read about this park focused on the cave. We were not interested in a cave tour, but found the park itself to be very serene and pretty. We were impressed by the amount to do in the state park and the nice campground. We plan to go back next time we are in this... More

My family met at the Florida Caverns for a mini-reunion. We had 19 people that wanted to tour the caverns amd we were lucky to get us all on one tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job of answering the questions of the younger members of our group. My 6 year old daughter even swears... More

We stopped here on our drive from Tampa to New Orleans. It was very nice although we made a point to get here early after reading stories of selling out all of the tours. There were some very interesting cave formations and a nice interpretive center above the gift shop. The volunteers in the interpretive center were very nice and... More

A few miles off I-10 in Marianna (FL) you can escape the highway for a few hours at Florida Caverns State Park. This park is a very popular place and if you plan to visit the caverns, please call ahead to see if tours are still available for the day. The last time we didn't and wasn't able to view... More

This was our second attempt to get in to the caves. The first time, we drove for five hours, arrived too late and all the tours for the day were full. They only take 25 people, which makes the hour tour very pleasant. Get there early. We were there when the doors opened and we still had to wait an... More

Drove up two hours from Tallahassee, what's cool is that the time changes west of the Apalachicola River (when you enter the "Panhandle" from "the Big Bend") so you technically get there half hour after you leave. Super cool tours leave every half hour - suggest to bring a picnic so you can also see some of the trails in... More

This is a nice cavern ...I have been to another that was more spectacular but this is certainly very nice. The tour is guided so you must wait for your specific time allotted you by ticket and that could take time.....other cavern that I visited was not guided and you could leisurely go through the cavern.

We stayed in Tallahassee this past weekend and we wanted to explore! We drove for about an hour and got to Marianna to check out the caves & trails! You can also go kayaking and canoeing there! It costs about $5 for parking and $8 per person for the caves (children are cheaper, if not free) and its all totally... More

The annual Florida 'coastal camping' came to an end and we had to head toward Beaufort, SC. A 3-night stay here was quite the transition from Palmettos and Spanish moss. The small campground located deep within the park was very similar to the hardwood environment of our Michigan home. Several walking trails provided daily excursions into the depths of the... More

As most who attended school here in the panhandle of Florida, I went to the caverns in elementary school. We recently went back with some of my wife's family from Maine, and took the tour again, enjoyed as much as I did the first time. Great little state park, like many of Florida's State Parks, but who would think of... More
