Falling Waters State Park, Chipley, North Florida FL

Description

Just half an hour west of Florida Caverns State Park, is this natural wonder, Falling Waters State Park! If you do them both in a day you will be full of awe at nature! You park close to the waterfall and can walk on a wooden boardwalk past amazing sinkholes! The earth has fallen down very very far here in huge almost bottomless pits! It's fun and scary to see! One of the sinkholes has a beautiful waterfall plunging over its edge and disappearing into an underground channel. This is the only waterfall in Florida, since Florida is usually flat. It's a sight to behold! Even when it's dry, it's impressive because you can stand on the edge of the deep chasm.
