 About Florida Caverns State Park

A freshwater springs awaits its guests.


Chris Hawthorne

Autumn is finally here bringing with it a ton of opportunity to camp.


  Are you looking for some reclusive relaxation or frolicking at a state park? Why not make it an overnight experience and take time to listen to the crackling campfire? Camping in autumn can be a fun and exhilarating experience. Surrounded by brilliantly colored foliage and crisp fall air, there's little not to like about this time of the year. At Florida Caverns State Park there are a few types of camping to choose from. We provide equestrian campsites and stables, RV sites with full hook-up and for the more adventurous soul we have tent sites with nothing but water provided.


  Florida Caverns State Park boasts of the only tour cave in the state, and it shows many different formations in various sizes and colors. Once on the surface again, try hiking the Bluff Trail where you can overlook the mile wide floodplain that runs through the park. Along this trail you will also find the Tunnel Cave that you can explore on you’re on.  Come on a weekend and you may catch a ranger doing a reptile program, flower walk, or some other event.


We here at the Florida Caverns look forward to seeing you and helping you to enjoy your visit.
