Take a picture next to Florida's highest waterfall.
Falling Waters State Park is located in northwestern Florida off of Interstate 10. Take the Sinkhole Trail to reach Falling Waters, Florida's highest waterfall. Keep an eye out for grey fox squirrels as you venture through this luscious landscape. There is also a butterfly garden where you can watch the migrating butterflies that stop here along their annual journey. Guests can enjoy geocaching, picnicking, camping, fishing, and other outdoor recreation. Falling Waters has it all, and it welcomes pets as long as they remain leashed and stay on the trails.
This state park is open year-round from 8 am to sunset. Please note that there is a $5 fee (per vehicle) to enter the park. Besides the falls, another point of interest is the remnants of Florida's first oil well and an old grist mill dating back to the late 1800s. The park has two icnic pavilions available via reservation, but they are free to use on a first-come, first-served basis when there are no reservations. Restroom facilities and a playground are conveniently located by the pavilions. Explore Florida's pan handle at Falling Waters State Park.
