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.

I just called the park to see what time they close today and was informed the park has been closed for two months due to the hurricane. But they will reopen as soon as they regain power and clear a lot of downed trees. I would call the park before planning a trip to the caves

great for experiencing the many hidden gems of Florida. The cavern and the information, the history behind the caver was extremely enjoyable and amazing. The hiking offers a great deal of relaxation while enjoying the scenery. We where able to spot two deers along the way. Definitely a great way to spent a Saturday morning family outing.

great tour for families with a couple of easy trails to go with the cave tour! plus swimming at blue hole!

This place is worth the $8 to take the guided tour. It’s back story is very interesting and the formations are beautiful.

Wow!!! The Caverns are amazing. The cost to go inside the Caverns with a tour guide is $8 and last about 45 minutes, totally worth it. This is the only place in Florida you can see these Caverns. If you are going to be in the area, please stop in for this hike, you want regret it.

Was a very entertaining cave tour, plus my wife and I had a great time exploring the Bluff trail afterwards. We had Robinson as our guide.

Nice trail. Lots of river view and cypress forest as well as scrub. Easy hike well marked.

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.

Well, from the name, you know there are caves to venture through. Whether you do it via the daily tours, or are an avid self-reliant cavern monkey, the view is great. There are marshlands aside from the trails that we use for our annual Holiday picture's background. Our three kids have been enjoying this State Park a couple times a year. Last I knew there were some geocaches there also. Along the horse riding trails, beware the expected biting flies, but let your keen eyes wander along for lizards and salamanders. The cooler the temps, the more enjoyable.
