This park used to be open for visitors to wander around the site of the civil war battle which kept Florida's capital from being captured by the Army of Northern aggression. As a result, Tallahassee was the only southern capital east of the Mississippi that was never occupied by the union army. The site is located six miles east of... More

Yep I'm a Southerner and a native Floridian (5th generation) so I'm a wee bit proud. But though Florida's involvement in the War Between the States was primarily providing men, salt and cattle there were several battles of significance with Natural Bridge being the one that stopped Federal 1865 attempt to take the last capitol east of the Mississippi River....

It's an important historic site, but sadly it's not much more than just a monument. I'm sure the time to go would be during the battle reenactment, but probably not any other time unless you may have had a ancestor involved in the battle. It would be nice to see more there- a trail or small museum or something that... More

I only saw a sign and a granite monument. Unless you had kin who had fought at that site, I'm not sure that that it's worth visiting.

I have been spoiled by the natural bridges of the west that I was expecting to see some sort of visible natural bridge/Arch. Instead this is where the river flows underground for a ways. While it is a bit scenic and seemed like a great fishing spot as there were several people with poles in the water. There is obviously... More

Large park to visit as well as the monument across the street. We just went and looked around, read the monuments and left. It was interesting.

This is a fun place to take a hike and just 'hang out' on a nice day with your family and have a picnic. The kids really enjoy the freedom and beauty of this area.

This is the State Park that honors the Battle that kept Tallahassee (State Capitol of Florida) from being captured during the War Between the States (Civil War). 3 years ago the State added a large land purchase to it. It's a beautiful site, Large UDC Monument and not much else, but important to take the little ones to and have... More

This state park is small and off the beaten path, but the local historical society and Civil War re-enactors contribute a LOT to keep this place up to high standards. Don't miss the battle re-enactment and living history events in Feb of each year. Nature lovers will appreciate the unique geological features found in the park and nearby.
