Florida is home to a lot of amazing destinations; many of which will make you feel like you are in the Amazon Jungle. The largest waterfall in the state is easily one of those places, and it is truly magnificent.
According to the information on the official Florida State Park's website, Falling Waters State Park located in Chipley, Florida consists of several large sinkholes, with the most impressive being the Falling Waters Sink - "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."
To get to the waterfall you will walk along Sink Hole Trail, a boardwalk that takes you on a journey through what looks like a scene straight out of Jurassic Park. This is the perfect spot to get some jungle-vibe photos without leaving the country! Check it out below:
Admission fees to the park are a standard $5 per vehicle, and the park is open from 8 a.m. until sundown, 365 days a year.
Currently, there is limited access to the waterfall as the lower observation deck remains closed due to impact from Hurricane Michael. Full access will reopen when it is deemed safe for visitors. For more information, please contact the park at 850-638-6130.
The park is located at 1130 State Park Road, Chipley FL 32428. Additional information can be found here.
