This is another in a series of beautiful, clean, well-kept Florida state parks that we have stayed at. This one is a large park with a small (30 sites) campground. The campground has lots of trees and vegetation and the sites are very large and well-separated with picnic table, fire pit, grill, and even a clothesline. We only stayed overnight but checked out the restrooms/showers and they looked very clean, bright, and modern. They even had two washers and dryers! They were on a covered patio outside of the restrooms and there wasn't a folding table or anything like that, but how many state parks have laundry facilities?! Nice to have. There'd been lots of rain and some of the sand/dirt site surfaces looked a bit soft, but we were assigned a paved handicap site (don't know why; guess the ranger felt sorry for us! lol!). Probably because of all the rain and standing, the mosquitoes were vicious...but everywhere else we went in Florida was even worse. Bring plenty of bug spray, and I'd invest in a no-see-um net suit and screens for the rig if I ever come back to Florida! Despite the bugs, I'd definitely stay at this and all the other FL state parks we visited again...just probably at a later time of the year when the humidity is under 90% every day and you can run from the rig to the truck with less than a dozen bug bites! We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Truck Camper.

The rate reflects a senior discount. If you love nature, this is the place for you. It is approximately 3 miles of paved roads from the entrance to the site. It was a lot of twist and turns but was manageable in our 40 plus tow. Our site was a 50 x 35 back in, dirt with full hookups. It is VERY dark in the park after sunset. Be very careful if you are driving in and out after dark because of the wild life. Have fun. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Although the park is big rig friendly, be very careful coming through the gate or you may damage a mirror or two. Take it SLOW and you will be okay.

This is a beautiful park. The entry road is about 3 miles of narrow roads but easily passable. The space we are in is 50ft deep and 35 wide.

We only stayed one night, but plan to return. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

This is within 6 or 7 miles from town. It is really quiet.

Cavern tours do not run on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.

There are lots of mosquitoes, bring your insect spray.

Stayed here many times in past, first time since they upgraded sites to full hookup. This was a great improvement to the campground. Love coming back to the "mother land", and this is a great place to stay any length of time. Being in the woods of north Florida and enjoying the animals and weather. Park employees are great and help when needed.

Park is located on the grounds of the Florida Caverns. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Small town Florida with some local shops within 5 miles.

Great park. Paved roads, level, shady sand/dirt sites. Good side privacy. Facilities first class. Friendly staff. Hiking and biking trails are excellent. Cavern tour a must. Our guide was awesome. Lot to do. Hiking, biking, fishing, golfing, swimming hole. Saw lot of wildlife. Equestrian facilities and trail. Playground and picnic facility. Camp store. No 20 amp service at sites. 50/30 only. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take the cavern tour! Enjoy the trails whether on foot or bike. Go into Marianna. Neat little town. No 20 amp service at sites. 50/30 only. Bring adapter if needed.

Gorgeous spot to camp with big generous campsites. Firewood is on sale there for $4 but was soaked and wouldn't burn. We were there in spring and everything was damp damp damp. However the birds (especially woodpeckers) are abundant and there is a nice trail right near the campground. The swimming spring is within an easy walk of the campground looked very attractive and we saw some families having a lot of fun if you like deep water. I would have given it a 10 but there are ants everywhere in the campground so put some vaseline on your electric cord and do ant preparations for that. It is a wild place. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The caverns are worth it but the tours are very busy so plan on being there by 8:30am and standing around for a while or you won't get tickets. The place has lovely combinations of typical Florida forests, swamps and sinkholes so you can really get a taste of wild Florida all in one place. If you can only get to one part of wild Florida do this campsite.

The park is somewhat remote. We were able to find it with very little trouble, but you have to pay close attention to the road signs.

The Campground was well-forested and the campsites were sand/gravel.

Restrooms were very clean and modern. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed four nights while visiting family in the area. Campground road is narrow but workable. Quiet campground during our stay. Site was level and provided FHU. Okay OTA and good Verizon cell/MiFi coverage. We enjoyed a tour of the caverns during our stay. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Motorhome.

As good as it gets for a State Park. Level sites with full hook-ups, fast and efficient check-in, great amenities within the park, laundry facilities, nice swimming hole, etc. We did need to unhook to drive the 3 miles through the park to get to the CG as the roads are narrow, but the Ranger warned us in advance so no problems. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Motorhome.

The caverns are really nice and so accessible – well worth a visit and the fee. The whole park sounded nice but it was very rainy during our short stay so we didn’t walk the trails. Aluminum and plastic recycling on site. There are lots of trees so there shade, and some privacy between the campsites. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The sites were large and the trees offered privacy. They were not paved, but still level. I was surprised to find sewer hook-ups on the sites. The roads were not easy to maneuver, but the scenery more than made up for the inconvenience. The cave tour was amazing and the swimming hole was absolutely beautiful. There is a 30ft drop off from the dock in the swimming hole so bring tubes for the kids. Our kids loved playing with the fire flies. This is a must see if you are driving through Florida. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Paved road throughout the park. Sites are dirt for most part but mostly level. Very nice cave tour and hiking trail. Large sites with fire rings. There is also a golf course that is part of the park. Would stay here again. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Motorhome.

Typical state park restrooms. Washer and dryers in bathhouse very handy and clean. Lots of kids on bicycles. Muddy sites after rain. Check in efficient. There are equestrian sites, but we did not use them. Entrance and exits are narrow. The road from the office to the campground is narrow as well. In places, two RVs could not pass each other. No shoulder in places and in some places, the edge of the pavement is a drop off ( in mud, if after a rain). Enjoyed the peacefulness of the place but would probably not return because of the roads. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Motorhome.

Fantastic park, sites are very nice and have sewer hookup which is rare in a state park. Site 16 is the best. Washrooms are heated and very clean, brand new washer/dryers. The cavern tour is fantastic, biking/hiking trails are very nice. There is a swimming hole for the kids and big playground area. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Travel Trailer.
