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

We visited Florida Caverns State Park as part of a family vacation. The cave tour is really neat and certainly worth the trip. Our guide, Doug, was very knowledgeable and answered all the questions put to him. He was especially great with the kids and even showed us a couple of bats in the cave - no larger than my... More

After stopping at a nearby RV park, we thought "why not" even though we have been to HUGE caverns in New Mexico. Glad we took it in, it was inexpensive and very enjoyable. The tour groups are small, 25 tops, and the tour was about an hour from start to finish. The guide was very personable and knowledgable. He pointed... More

I went to the Florida Caverns State Park this past weekend with a bunch of friends. It costs $5 entrance per car and $8 per person for the tour of the caves. You can't go into the caves unless you go on the tour. The caves are really interesting and our guide, Doug, was really nice. We walked through the... More

I can't believe this gem was in Florida. All my life I've lived in Florida and never would I have imagined that we had a cavern. The tour was awesome and I couldn't believe how big the cavern was. I definitely recommend visiting this State Park. One of my all time favorite parks!

Short but informative tour. Love caves. This one is interesting since it is still so active. Nice looking campground. Might consider staying next time I'm up this way.

The caverns were amazing. The tour group size was small and the tour guide was very personable. We saw five bats-one flying! The CCC history was fun to learn about too. We liked the Bluffs hiking path through the cave tunnel. The trail was littered with spring flowers and just being the only hikers was magical! We discovered lichen giving... More
