A neat place,especially if you've never experienced something like this before. Was $8 per person seems like it could be a tad cheaper as it goes by pretty qyick (depending on your guide I guess)? Also might not be for anyone that's claustrophobic.

This is my 2nd time in a cave. First in S Dakota and there were lots of stairs. This wasn't any where close to that. You did have to bend down alot for some of the passages. The formations are amazing what water does. The sink hole from the bottom up was AMAZING..since Fla is know for sink holes. It... More

Supposedly the only above-water cave you can visit in Florida. Tour takes about an hour. Lots of variety of cave features. Also saw one bat, one cave cricket and one cave crawdad. Pretty good tour leader with lots of info. Short walk to and from cave. Inside is a bit of up and down but fairly easy walk. You do... More

We stopped and camped here on the way to Destin. They had just had a lot of rain. There were tons of Mosquitos! They were very nice and tried to forewarn us. The campground was alright. We have a large fifth wheel. It wasn't very easy to get into the site. This campground is better suited for smaller campers. In... More

This is a really cool day trip. Learn some history of Florida. See the really cool caverns. The tour guides are very knowledgable and friendly. I would say that if you are claustrophobic that you should probably just do the trails outside. If you are mildly claustrophobic, then you should be fine. The caverns are safe, and well lit and...

While smaller, I rate the cave up there with Lurray. It doesn't have the "theme park" feel of Lurray either. I used a tent only site and really liked it. It was away from the RV area. Peaceful. Well kept. The bathrooms were clean and nice. I recommend hiking the trail near the visitor center after doing the cave tour.... More

We went to Florida Caverns in June, and there is no coastal breeze. There is no relief from the heat. The springs are ice cold, even when it's over 100 degrees outside, but too cold for me personally (the rest of my family enjoyed cooling off but were visibly shivering the entire time they were in the water). The caverns... More

My husband and I picked a rainy day to drive for 2 hours and it was absolutely worth it. Our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgable generally and about the the caves she showed us. There were some tight spots but we got the warning in advance and nothing was dangerous. There were really cool formations that I would go... More
