The Caverns has been an attraction also since being found. It is the origin of the Chipola River. There is a lot of nice features to the cave and for anyone interesting in caves, history or rivers this is a nice family attraction. It takes a couple hours to go through it but it is well worth. Wear comfortable clothes... More

Get place to visit. The cave tour was very good. They let you take pictures. The tour took less than a hour. It was eight dollars a person. There was a few hiking trails. A great place to take the family and see how Florida was like hundred years ago.

We spent the night at a hotel in town (about 10 min away) and went to the caves to break up a long drive to Orlando from New Orleans. I was with my two teen daughters, and they both loved the experience. Only a few hours was needed, and we enjoyed it, even though we were caught in a huge... More

The cavern tour was amazing. Who knew there were so many types of underground formations and how many millions of years it took to make them. The guide was great and very knowledgeable. A great way to spend a morning.

This is truly a treasure of Florida. The cavern guides know their stuff. The caverns are beautiful. The tours fill up fast. Best to get there early. We arrived at 11 a.m. We ended up on the 1:00 tour. Was a little but disappointed about the wait until I discovered the hiking trail near visitors center that was a 3/4... More

Florida Cacers State Park has something for all of to enjoy. The caverns are beautiful. Our guide was and is very knowledgable, and entertaining. The caverns were excervated by the ccc in the 30's when there was a depression. The young men made $1.00 a day along with room and board. They really only received $5.00 a month because $25.00...

This park is awesome. It's a closed (gated) park after hours. You need a code to open the gates. Check the hours of operation online. We spent 3 days in an RV. The Cavern Tours are first come first serve. The office that sells the tour tickets are open at 8:45 AM for the first tour that starts at 9... More
