The park has some nice big covered tables with 2-4 tables under them. It is a nice place for a family picnic or church group. You can call the park and reserve a space for free. There's a nice large, clean rest room area ....More

Of course since we've been experiencing a drought the "waterfall" was more of a trickle. The park ranger notified us of this as we entered the park. Nonetheless, it was really neat to walk the trails, see the area sinkholes, and the hole to which...More

Rainstorms were moving in from the west as we left the Tampa area and we drove through at least three rainstorms on our way west on I-10. Falling Waters SP was one of the planned stops and our timing was perfect. The skies cleared and...More

I was expecting...a waterfall. I know that it hasn't rained a lot so that's understandable but we literally starting laughing when we saw "Florida's tallest waterfall." It is "tall" because it falls into a sinkhole. And I heard the sinkholes were actually pretty unique to...More

The waterfall can dry up, so check before you go if the rains have been absent to see if the waterfall is currently running. The bathrooms were adequate. Not the best I've dealt with, but a far cry from the worst. The camping area seemed...More

We visit the park in April was quiet, very well maintained. The fall is something unique at least in Florida and the place has a long history.

Nice and clean trails, part boardwalk and part paved. The road to the swimming area is paved. Small beach and picnic tables plus shower and bathrooms near the water. Many interpretive plaques. The falls are impressive even if not a lot of water is falling....More

I'm trying to organize a camping trip with non campers and its proving difficult. Do the campsites have running water and outlets? Do you have bathrooms and showers as well? Your camp looks beautiful!

We live in Panama City Beach and just made the short drive there only about 40 minutes.
Hi, wondering what tent camping fees for weekend fri-sat nights for a couple and a small dog? Are there public grilles and pavilions with rest rooms and bath houses?
