Yes we did know that the bridge and steps to the sinkhole were closed as it’s stated on website. But in addition there is a “bridge closure” that means you can not walk the loop. You need to turn around and pass everyone walking the path. Makes you wonder why you can’t walk the steps because of two way traffic, but can walk the trail passing each other. You also can’t see anything of the sinkhole from the path. We’ll return when things are open again.

This place is a joke! Do not believe the photos they post on their website. After a trip there...we never saw one water fall whatsoever. An over grown woods with LOTS of walking up and down and around. We didn't see much at all. I would avoid wasting your time here! And it costs money! BEWARE...check out other locations first such as: Cedar Lakes Woods and Gardens in Williston, FL not too far away. Now...this is a hidden treasure and so beautiful! There is a fee but...well worth the trip!

All areas are closed except the walking path, which is not that long. The sinkhole and stairs leading to it are closed, there are no waterfalls as some have mentioned. A WASTE OF TIME!! Don’t bother. As you drive in, there is a box that you put $4 in an envelope and put the receipt on your dashboard. You start walking toward the path and you realize everything you came to see is closed. Very disappointing. After complaining to the person in the office, she gave us a free coupon to Enter any other national park in Florida. What a bummer this was.

Beware you must have $4 exact cash to visit. There's a payment booth but no cards are accepted nor any change available, so be prepared! There is a sinkhole and waterfall here, but unfortunately due to COVID19 they have blocked off the bridge and stairs that lead to these beautiful areas. The nature trail is still worth a visit even if the main events are closed off.

Was an amazing place. We were lucky enough to be there while a musician played his flute and it brought the place to life and it remained serene. MANY step so be prepared to go all the way to the base. Yes its a sink hole but what isn't in FL so it the natural beauty
