About Florida Caverns State Park

Did you know that the Florida Caverns State Park is the ONLY state park in Florida that allows you to enjoy cave tours? Crazy isn't it!?

Florida Caverns State Park has a host of fun, outdoor adventure for the whole family to enjoy, but the highlight of course are the Florida Caverns themselves.

This underground wonder has a host of dazzling formations that have been created over millions and millions of years. It's pretty quite amazing when you think about it! Some of the famous formations include the limestone stalactites, and stalagmites (kids, can you remember which cling to the roof and while rise from the ground?)

There are also the delicate soda straw, draperies and flowstones.

The best way to see the cavern is via the 45 minute guided tour that is offered Thursdays to Mondays. This moderately strenuous tour is a great way to not only learn about the cave itself, but also the surrounding area.

But don't forget you're in a state park, so there is that host of other adventures waiting to be had! The Chipola River and Blue Hole spring are a great source for you to get out with the canoe or boat, or even spend some time fishing.

The area itself is also really popular for horseback riding, hiking and camping, so why not really make an adventure out of it!

The visitor center is the best place to pick up any extra information about the Florida Caverns State Park, and don't forget with those little ones to check out the playground. A great way to work off all of that excitement!

Underground and overground adventures await!
