A nice place to take kids. Very nice tour, with great tour guides with lots of information. A flashlight tour would be so awesome!

My husband and I stayed about half hour away from caverns and decided to visit. We got there around noon and couldn't get into a tour until 3:00. It was worth the wait! Adam was a wonderful, funny, and informative tour guide also saw surrounding area and ate lunch. A must see if in the area

Great on a hot summer day! It's a cool 65 degrees inside. If you're in the Florida Panhandle, do take the time for the one hour tour. Reservations are advised and must be made in person at the ranger station, inside the park. You will have to crouch way down through a couple of passages, but that's part of the... More

It's a beautiful state park. Lots of shaded trails to explore. The museum at the Visitor Center has a lot of information. I would have liked to read more in there but the kids just liked walking through it. Of course the highlight is the Cavern Tour. The guide explains a lot about the history here and structure of caverns... More

We decided to do a day trip and visit a couple of state parks. This one is at the top of my list of most remembered. We paid 5 dollars for the park and 8 dollars for the cave tour. For photo geeks like me it was very cool. The education was awsome. It took us about 30 to 45... More

This is a great stop for the family. We were travelling from Savannah to Pensacola and deliberately stopped in Marianna to experience the caverns. We called ahead to make sure they were open. We got there at 2pm Central time and the next tour was at 3:30. We decided to check out the blue spring which is naturally fed from... More

We arrived around noon and were told the next tour that had room for my party was 1pm. The tour lasted about 1 hour and was very interesting. The tour guide was very good and the cavern was very interesting . There is paved walk ways and lights in the caverns . This was a cheap stop and fun for... More
