Cool weather makes outdoor activities infinitely more comfortable. So, put “hike to the highest waterfall in the state of Florida” a sure thing for things to do in Florida. Must see! The cool Florida forest makes a perfect weekend retreat.



As you explore the park, you will notice several areas of construction. Projects are currently underway in the camping area and on some of the trails. We are upgrading the sewage system in the campground to provide better, more sanitary services for our campers and visitors. Additionally, we are updating some of our trails and boardwalks to provide enhanced accessibility to our visitors and guests.

We will keep you up to date on our progress and hope you will still come and visit us to explore ‘The real Florida’!


Welcome to Falling Waters State Park

ppp-mainHuge trees and fern-covered sinkholes line Sink Hole Trail, the boardwalk that leads visitors to Florida’s highest waterfall. Falling Waters Sink 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. 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. Park rangers host interpretive programs in the amphitheater. Full-facility campsites nestled in a shady pine forest provide the perfect excuse for an overnight stay at Falling Waters.
