One of the few state parks with dry (air filled) caves and the only Florida state park to offer cave tours to the public. The cave has dazzling formations of limestone stalactites, stalagmites, soda straws, flowstones and draperies. Florida Caverns is also popular for camping, swimming, fishing, picnicking, canoeing, boating, hiking, bicycling and horseback riding. Though the park does not rent horses, stables are available for equestrian campers. Cave tour lasts approximately 45 minutes and are considered to be moderately strenuous. An audiovisual program, touring the cave and other natural areas of the park, is available in the visitor center.

This is the most magical state park in Florida. You usually don't see caverns in Florida this is something that is in the in the Northern States. The trail is great, well maintained and marked. No bugs!

Cave tours and really beautiful hikes. you won't see stuff like this till you get more north Florida so for me this place was awesome! I took my 9 year old here she loved it as well. there are a few different hikes to choose from none of them are long at all just cool.

The kiddos loved it. We had a blast!

Very clean site with beautiful cave structures and a staff that has remain consistently friendly and informative.

So cool never knew there were caverns in Florida

The trails are nice and fun. A little spooky sometimes with the caves lol. The cavern tour is the best. The Rangers are very knowledgable about the formations. Very fun and educational.

Great hike, particularly if you get off the trail and climb trees and rocks!

Very nice hiking area with scenery. The caverns are cool which is nice after hiking around in the heat.

The Florida Caverns State Park offers several short trails when combined offer a full day of nature in one of Florida's great parks. Near the Visitor Center parking lot is the Bluff Trail, Shortcut Trail, and the Beech Magnolia Trail. These trails are primarily for hiking, but after you cross the Chipola River, you will find the Sinkhole Trail, River Trail, and Fence Line Trail. These three trails are multipurpose allowing hiking, cycling, and horseback riding. The park has diverse natural communities ranging from floodplain forest to upland hardwood forest. There are caves, bluffs, and springs aplenty. Living near the park I find early October to May is the best time to visit or camp.

I made the mistake of bringing my dogs here so the caverns were off limits. We had to make due with the trails around the park and I was not impressed. The park did not seem very large and we finished the trails fairly quickly. Nothing really interesting to see and you would constantly brush up against fences indicating privately owned land. Bring bug spray.
