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

How do you have a waterfall with no water? It was a big hole in the ground with extremely little trickles of water flowing down. The rest of the water was very disgusting brown. The swimming hole was brown water and people were actually swimming in it! There was very little water in the creeks and what was there was... More

Stayed here on the way to the beach. Super nice little park with a quiet campground. We stayed in site #4 and could've left the truck hitched to the camper. All sites are close to the bathhouse. Water Fall was still flowing and seemed to get a lot of visitors. Would stay here again if need be for an overnight... More
