I can't say enough about this park or this part of Florida. Waterfalls and caves typically don't spring to mind when thinking of the land of Mikey Mouse, palm trees and beaches. But we do have them! Falling Waters State Park is a little known treasure in the Florida Panhandle. The waterfall can sometimes be nothing more than a trickle.... More

One thing I liked about this park is even though there isn't a lot to see what there is has been easy to get to with excellent stairs and wooden paths. The price get a nice relaxing walk and although the waterfall cheats going into a sink hole it is still a good picture spot.

Nice place to see a unique natural waterfall in Florida. This is very rare for Florida. The trails are boardwalks that are nice and clean. The fall is easy and quick to get to. This is a great quick stop for a unique Florida find.

Beautiful park. Waterfall is easily accessible down a paved trail with little incline. Wait for spring water flow is very little in the summer. The sink holes are impressive to see.

Falling Waters is Florida's tallest waterfall. A small stream runs over the edge of a deep cylindrical sink to create a roughly 80-foot fall. Best to see during the winter or after heavy rains, it can be just a trickle in the summer but it is really something to see during the rainy season. The park is a great place... More

Based on other TripAdvisor reviews, we called the park ahead of time to check for water. The ranger said they had received rain a few days before so some water was trickling, but it was not at its full potential. On our way west from the Florida Caverns, this park is only 5 minutes off the interstate, so we figured... More

We visited the park the last week of June so the falls had very little water, but it was still enjoyable. The trail to the falls is a wood boardwalk, after that you will encounter some rocks and tree roots. We loved that there were informational signs along the way, telling about the trees and plants that we were seeing,... More

Easy walk to waterfall, the water was flowing. Many trails closed due to renovations, but it was very peaceful. We didn't get a chance to hike to the lake. Looks like a nice place to camp.

A gigantic waterfall ? No, its no ones version of Niagara Falls, but its spring water. Its the highest in the sunshine state. It trickles in the summer and flows a little stronger in the spring. The water pours into a deep sink hole, there is a lake on site for swimming. There are grills, but no restaurants, so pack... More
