If you are looking for a different type of scenery in Florida, this state park got it. The Falling Waters State Park will give you a summer experience like never before.
This is Florida's highest waterfall surrounded by hugh trees and fern-covered sinkholes. This waterfall has a boardwalk that lead visitors directly to the waterfall. This waterfall is 100-foot deep, 20-foot wide cylindrical pit into which flows a small stream that drops 73 feet to the bottom of the sink. Currently, the water final's destination remains unknown.
The place is open daily from 8 am until sundown. However, there is limited access to the waterfall as the lower observation deck remains closed due to Hurricane Michael. Many vistors come here for photoshoots and enjoy nature.
The park also provides visitors a beautiful butterfly garden where you can see the migrating butterflies. You can also take a dip in the lake, have a picnic, or hike. Hikers can experience the verdant and gently sloping of this beautiful park. The park has nature trails, campfire circles, shower station, and other amenities to make your camping experience unforgettable.
Of course, the waterfall will be the highlight of the trip and you can hear it from 100 yards away. In addition, there are 12 limestone holes and are estimated to be more than 20 million years old.
