We went to Marianna on a Friday. We did the cave tour, which was absolutely beautiful!!!! Yes, the cavern is near the surface area, but I was okay with that. Yes, the cavern had some tight spaces and was low-hanging. I am 6'2 and weighs around 250 pounds, and I was not at any moment in extreme discomfort. If you... More

Really nice park. Staff was friendly and helpful at check-in. Campsites have a good amount of space (and trees) so you're not on top of other campers. Bathrooms were clean. Swimming in a 30-ft spring, hiking trails, plenty of places to picnic and bike, alligators and lots of other wildlife to see. The caverns make for a good outing, probably... More

The Florida Caverns are Great, a must See! Our Tour Guide Barbara, was lovely, delightful, and informative. The historic grounds are a cool change from the standard beach blanket hectic hurried Florida world........ that being said; IF you are slightly hurried consider bringing the "hemlock" because the entire community seems to be on Valium. the streets are busy but people...

This is the 2nd worse cave I've seen and I've been to many. I was extremely surprised at how shallow the cave was to surface. but we were in Florida in Florida is not known for mountains. the cavern was unusually warm. the cavern was extremely small and had many tight areas that you had to get through. it had...

Pretty park. Several walking trails that enable you to view interesting rock formations and the flood plain/ swamp area. Take the cavern tour - well worth the money.

Florida Caverns State Park was a wonderful two hour stop in the way from Florida to Louisiana on Interstate 10. The caverns are less than ten miles off the interstate and broke up a long drive. I highly recommend that you take a tour inside. The tour lasts about 45 to 60 minutes and you are able to view about... More

Everyone in Florida needs to check this out someday. Kevin our cave tour guide was very knowledgable, fun and very patient with the little ones and their endless questions. The park trails with limestone outcrops and shallow caves are great to walk and can be hairy if you venture off the trail. We had amazing views of a cypress flood... More

Just so everyone is aware, the caverns are not open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The brochure we had did not state that. We found out only when we arrived at the Park. There is a film of the caverns which is very interesting. The highlight was the trail through the park. It was very rough so you did not have... More
