Where are we going today?

Huge trees and fern-covered sinkholes line Sink Hole Trail, the boardwalk that leads visitors to Florida's highest waterfall. Falling Waters Sink is a 100-foot deep, 20-foot wide cylindrical pit into which flows a small stream that drops 73 feet to the bottom of the sink. The water's final destination remains unknown. Only a few miles south of I-10, the park provides travelers with a quiet, serene stop on their journey. Visitors can see beautiful native and migrating butterflies in the butterfly garden, take a dip in the lake, or have a family picnic. Hikers can experience the verdant, gently sloping landscape of North Florida. Park rangers host interpretive programs in the amphitheater. Full-facility campsites nestled in a shady pine forest provide the perfect excuse for an overnight stay at Falling Waters.

    Was here in January had fun on our walk. The water fall was beautiful it wasn't flowing fully but enough to take great pictures. There was hardly anyone there so it was quiet which was fine see more wildlife.

    Fall 2013. Nice park clean and well maintained. The campground is the highest one if Florida and one of the older ones as well. The tall pines make for nice hiking since the park is rather small. The best time to visit is after the rainy season because the water fall is fed from the swimming area that way there is ample water for the falls. Camp loop is paved and sites are gravel and kinda sloped.
