Falling Waters State Park features Falling Waters Sink, which 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 and is a great place for camping near Gainesville. 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.
Small campground. Sites ok. Nice bathhouse. Site of highest waterfall in Florida, ending in a sinkhole. No sewer hookup. Nice weekend destination. Little else in area. 20 miles to caverns, which has its own campground
This was our first time taking the travel trailer out. It was a perfect place. Had swings for the kids near the campground and larger playground at beginning of trails. Nice swimming hole to cool off in and a short walk to see the waterfall and sinkholes. Many restrooms around the park and they were all very clean. My kids loved it.
This is a small campground. Most sites had shrubs between sites so semiprivate. Bathrooms were clean and good hot showers. Good trails through park. Lake area to swim. Waterfall was good size when we went but it depends on rainfall and water levels. Water flows from waterfall into sinkhole. Great little camp everybody was very friendly here. Not far from interstate so there was a good variety of stores if needed.
Not a very big state park but it was very quiet and relaxing. Only about 20 sites total with a very nice restrooms and showers. There was also a spot to wash dishes. Alot of trees so plenty of shade. There are pull through and back in sites. Tent camping all the way up to class A. Water and electric but no sewer at site. There is a dump station. The falls and the lake were nice but depend on rainfall. We have been in a little drought so it was a trickle. There are fish in the lake but do not like to be caught. Swimming area at the lake as well. Some trails but not a bunch. Would definitely come back.
This park has waterfalls, which are beautiful, but not very big. The swimming area was very mucky.
The sites were spacious and well set up.
Great camp ground. Pretty falls.
Lovely campground! They had just done a controlled burn about 2 weeks before we were there so everything looked like fall!
We stumbled upon this RV park due to mechanical truck issues. The hosts were incredibly accommodating! Park is quiet and clean with trails that lead to the highest waterfall in Florida. Side note: HIGHLY recommend area mechanic Daniels Automotive.
We always stop here on our way back from Tallahassee for a quick hike! Nice place to stretch your legs!
Falling Waters State Park is a great place to bring your family to create some lasting memories!
The falls are quite beautiful and there is a nice trail that takes you right down to where you are facing the falls and you can look down into a long dark pit.
The park is not large but is very nice and has a sandy beach swimming hole with bathroom/changing facilities and a super picnic area with a awesome play area for the kids.
We were a little disappointed as one of the main trails around some interesting sink holes was closed and in need of repair.
The campsites are nice but fill up fast!
A great place for a family reunion or picnic!
