Very nice small clean campground and park, but a lot to see. Level sandy, shady sites. Showers/restrooms clean. Some construction going on, but still enough hiking trails to satisfy. Asphalt roads to bike on. Hilly. Interesting sink holes and some local history. Good signage. It rained hard one day, but campsites drained well. Great staff. We camped at Falling Waters State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take to the trails. Visit the falls and sinkholes. Nice beach and swimming area. Playground for the kids.

Stayed here for one night. Watch for low branches on the drive to the park entrance. Checking-in was easy because we had reserved online, extra fee of $6.70. Since it was a little distance from the check-in area back to the campground we inquired if we needed to unhook the car. She said "yes, there is no room back there." We thought that she should have told us that automatically. We were in #2 so had to drive around the whole campground loop to get to our back-in site. We were there during some bad storms so did not get to hike or see the waterfall. There is no sewer but a dump is available. We camped at Falling Waters State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is located on a hill. We have a 38 ft RV and even though we stayed in a pull through, we had difficulty getting in and out because of the narrow roads. We did not see the falls because of the dry conditions. This was our second time at this park, but our previous stay was in a 31 ft class C. We had no issues with that rig.

we probably won't stay here again because of the narrow roads. We camped at Falling Waters State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Nothing nearby.

The park was clean and just finished some upgrades and repairs prior to our arrival. Some construction barricades still exist but posed no real interference to daily camping life. Our gravel site was a little un-level, we added 3 and 1/2 inches to the entry side and it was camp on! The park was pet friendly except for the swimming area. We enjoyed the friendly service from all and in the evenings the park was quite. We stayed here with our two beagles and would stop here again. We camped at Falling Waters State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure to check out the Falling Waters waterfall and the trails/boardwalks around it.

This is a quiet campground, convenient to Route 10. Sites are mostly gravel and some are small and difficult to back into. If you have a big rig, I suggest you call the campground to discuss site sizes before booking online. Bathrooms and showers, while not huge, are clean. The playground inside the campground is no longer there. However there is a beautiful playground and picnic area in the public portion of the park which also has a small swimming lake. There are nice, woodsy trails to the falls and sinkhole areas. Good for a few days stop. Rangers and staff are all quite nice. We camped at Falling Waters State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Small convenient park off I-10. Perfect for a short stay but would not be a destination park for me. Bathrooms were spotless every time I went in. Sites vary in size and privacy. Some looked very level, others required some extra help. Nice trail system to stretch the legs but not a challenge. Water fall was flowing and worth the walk. Chipley is a small town but has basic amenities and just a short drive down the road. I would stay here again when in the area. We camped at Falling Waters State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park, most sites are small, be careful if choosing on line. Washrooms are heated and clean but a bit old. The waterfall is "awe inspiring" and a must see, great hiking and biking trails. Nice small swimming lake with super soft sand beach. Not a great park but good for one or two nights so you can see the falls. Easy access to I-10. We camped at Falling Waters State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park right off I-10. Sites were typical for any state park. We were lucky and were there when water was actually falling, but the park is beautiful anytime. Trails go directly from the camping loop to a small swimming lake. It didn't look that appealing. Can't beat the price and location. We camped at Falling Waters State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Small State Park with easy on/off access from I-10. Roads are narrow and sites are small. Their definition of a pull-through means a small area that curves at 180 degrees with trees on both sides. If you are 40 foot or bigger it will give you pause to rethink asking for a pull-through. You are much better off with a back-in. We like parks with more space. Also, no satellite will all the trees. And, many trees with low hanging branches on the way to the park entrance. Not sure if it’s county property or private land. The waterfall is overrated. Just my opinion. Would not stay here again.

Small rustic, very hilly park with narrow roads and off level sites. Very heavily treed. Sites are large and well maintained. Friendly and helpful ranger lent us a tool to fix an electrical problem we had. Birds all over the place, nice ambiance. We would return. We camped at Falling Waters State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Monday, February 24 – Falling Waters State Park, Chipley, FL. This park is only a little over a mile south of interstate 10 in Chipley, FL. There is a Wal-Mart just about .6 north at the same exit in the Panhandle Region. It was raining the day we arrived and had been since the night before, sometimes drenching rain. We drove down to the trails with the waterfall and sink holes before we set up camp, and it was well worth the stop. Very interesting trails, and the waterfall is the largest in the state disappearing into a sink hole. There are more trails head to the lake for swimming and others to all the sinkholes. The campground has twenty four sites, and some are pull through, and all have water, electric and grills. Many are not level since the campground is on the highest hill in Florida about 324 feet above sea level. The cost was around $24, and on Saturday nights there is a ranger led campfire get together. One can swim, fish, hike and picnic here. Good overnight stop or stay a little longer. We camped at Falling Waters State Park in a Motorhome.

Park offers hiking, swimming, and monthly presentations on wildlife. The waterfall was running while we were there. This is really a wonderful park. The only complaint is that it is a really small park with really small sites. If you are more than 36' be prepared to be on a tight fitting site. Our cell and Verizon broadband worked well. The restrooms were clean. We camped at Falling Waters State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very small campground but nice. We had a pull through site. Campground is at the very top of a hill that looks down on the lake. Paths to the lake are very steep but worth the walk. We did not go in the water but there was a swimming area. Ranger was very helpful with suggestions on restaurants. There is a Wal-Mart very close which is convenient. We were here on a Saturday and Sunday and park still had lots of openings. We had rain on both days but on one morning we did go to the waterfall which was running. There is a sign as you come in the park that depending on the weather, it may or may not be running. We camped at Falling Waters State Park in a Travel Trailer.
