We did this trail when it had not been raining (March 2019 I believe) and it was still very nice. Part of it was closed due to hurricane Michael damage. The campgrounds were also very nice and near the lake.

A short hike to a Grand View.

You definitely have to come when it’s been raining, but this was very nice. I only went down at the sinkhole waterfall Trail and that it was very beautiful. However most of the sinkhole trail is blocked off from damage to I guess the boardwalk. The small view of the sink holes that you do you have is very very spectacular and I wouldn’t pass it up for five dollars. The waterfall is also fantastic if it has been raining. Five dollars to enter the park, like I said. I explored the trails in less than 30 minutes due to the closures, but there was another trail towards a lake that I did not go down. You can also camp here apparently, but I don’t know much about that.

Small trail but beautiful after a rainy day. Camp site is clean and comfortable

This is a must to see if you live in Florida. It isn't a massive waterfall like you see in North Georgia but it is very pretty. It is actually the result of a sinkhole which Florida is full of. The trail is very well maintained just know there are numerous stairs on the trail. On the trail there is a section for swimming and restrooms to change.

A simple walkway trail to a waterfall and sinkholes. Lots of pretty ferns and a lake.

Loved it. The sinkholes are great, though the trail for them was very hazardous and much of the boardwalks were heading down into the sinkholes. The water fall wasn't at its full but flowing. Pretty easy with much on boardwalks. Rained for nearly half the time we were on it.

very short trail, sink hole trail undrr construction, water fall was small due to small recent rains, the lake was a nice size for swimming

I came after a storm so the falls were a nice size. The park is well maintained. Unfortunately, when I was there the sink hole trail was under construction. No need for your boots here as the whole trail is paved.

Not far to get to the falls and when we went after rain there was a decent amount of water flowing. The hike afterwards was fun with lots of sinkholes to explore.

Nice walking trail, although short. I went when the falls were dried up so I missed out on the beauty of that. There is a nice lake and old roads. Well maintained.

Well maintained boardwalk and trails. You will only see the water falling during periods of regular rain, but when it is flowing it is quite a site. The many sinkholes are full of tropical ferns and wildflowers. Spring is beautiful and October (wildflower season) is colorful. A must see park if you are in the area!

Nice trails and highest waterfall in Florida. Must see! Go after a rain and there will be more water going over the falls.
