Very interesting place that you may not expect to see in Florida. Not the easiest place to get around if you have any disabilities.

Park is lovely. Secluded. Clean. Caves closed Tuesdays and Wednesday but that was fine. Great hiking and biking but don't plan on swimming. Due to lack of rain swamp took over blue hole swimming spring which was like creature from dark lagoon complete with alligators where swimming used to be. Rv sites huge and wide and flat too. Caves look... More

After years of driving past the signs to the Florida Caverns, I finally visited. And it didn't disappoint. The Caverns were smaller than I expected (from looking at photos). I'm 5'5" and I had to duck down to go from one cavern room to the other. The cavern tour is a guided tour, and it cost $21 for 2 people... More

We visited FCSP this year for our annual mother-daughter trip. Stayed in Tally(the park is just around an hour away but very easy drive). The caverns tour is about an hour long and the cave was about 62 degrees F. I can get claustrophobic, but didn't have problems with this cavern, probably because of the cool temperature. Tours leave every... More

Who knew there would be a stand up cave in Florida , We arrived first thing in the morning when the park opened and had no problem getting the 9 am tour. It lasts about 45 minutes and it's a great way to beat the heat. There is a lot of bending down to get through the cave but it... More

Our group, 4 adults, 3 kids spent the day in Marianna. The plan was to tube in the morning & do the cave tour in the afternoon. To our dismay, when we arrived at the State Park about 2:00 PM, we were informed that the last four cave tours were sold out for the day. Really? We couldn't believe it........ More

Great place! We got there at 9am so we could reserve our cave tour. We hiked the Bluff/Floodplain Trail which had the Tunnel Cave immediately after the start from the cave tour parking lot. What a great trail! Didn't feel like I was in Florida at all! We took the cave tour at 11:30. It lasted a little over an... More

Walked the nature trails. They were great. Didn't make it to the caverns. they were sold out but I'm sure they are great too.We went into the visitors center where a young girl was sitting at a table of things like a fox tale, different bugs and such. there was also a small snake on display in a case.

This is a beautiful spot to visit that's 63 degrees year round so great in Florida in July or August PLuS it's amazing for an 8-99 year old kid to experience ! Incredible learnings and not expensive. At least a 4-hour adventure with trail, guide and museum. We will go back!
