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

We arrived at Florida Caverns State Park following a day of hard rain. Although the campsites were full hookup and 50 amp service, the sites themselves were hard packed muddy clay which made it a real challenge to keep our rv clean. The sites were very wooded and large enough for our 38 foot rv. The nights were quiet and... More

The cave was amazing, the only dry cave in Florida. The whole park was beautiful with wonderful hikes and hilly terrain. I would recommend this place to everyone.

The caverns tour was excellent and inexpensive. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Tour lasted about an hour. The only reason not to give a five stars was the many mosquitos and gnats due to the rain. We Stayed At The Campgrounds And It very muddy.

We were there in 2004 and we had a wonderful time. My husband was working for a company there for 6 weeks. We came from Vero Beach with are 5 week old son at the time. We never felt that we were rushed with our tour and I took many of pictures in the caverns. I so hope one day... More

I don't know what I could possibly say that hasn't already been said about the Caverns. What an awesome attraction! I had a great time in the caverns -- plus it was about 20 degrees cooler down there. The tour guides do a great job of setting the scene of how hard it would have been to excavate the caverns...

Florida Caverns Park is a spectacular attraction. In a state known for its flat land and humid weather, visiting the caverns is the antithesis of both. Traveling underground to view this natural architecture is amazing and the temperature inside is quite pleasant. Our ranger was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all questions asked. I had been in caverns... More

This was our first time ever doing something like this and it was worth the trip. Our tour wasn't too crowded and the tour guide was friendly and easy to hear. If you're into outdoors activities this is definitely something I would recommend. The people in our group were aged from children to older adults and everyone seemed to enjoy... More
