We only stayed one night - but without question, this campground was the quietest in my experience with Florida campgrounds. It's a bit of a distance off I - 10 and once you enter the park, it's another mile plus into the campground. Our site (#18) was equipped with electricity, water and sewer. The site are very level and each... More

Visited the park in Winter 2015, when temperatures were cool and biting insects (i.e. mosquitoes/no-see-ums) were 99% gone. Visited previously in summer, it was hot/muggy and biting insects were pretty bad. We paid for the cave tour in previous visit, and it was really interesting, especially in hot summer months. Cave is about 50-60 degrees F year-round, and is a... More

We had so much fun going thru the Caverns and camping in the park. The park was really nice with the hiking trails. Would definitely recommend visiting here.

We stopped through during a drive back from FL and make sure you plan ahead if you're doing this to arrive early enough. We arrived around 2:00 and they have tours leaving every 30 minutes, they were booked up until the last one of the day and we were put on the list as an extra which was kind of... More

Entrance to the park is $5 per vehicle. We enjoyed the cave tour, museum and a easy one mile hike, all in about 3-4 hours on our way home from the Destin area. The cave tours ($8pp) run about every 30 minutes, giving you time to explore the small museum upstairs before you go to the cave. Not the biggest... More

As far as caverns go I've seen much more spectacular ones, in VA and NC. However, this tour was one of the longest I've been on and well done. The tour guide was nice and much more knowledgable than I had expected. Be prepared to do a lot of bending as several areas of the cave have very low celilings.... More

Stunning park. Make sure you check to see when they're open because it's not all week. The tour was incredible, lasted about an hour. You won't see anything else like this in Florida ♡ site 10 is pretty private if that matters to you.

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)....
