We have a day trip category with nothing in it! While a little bit lengthy for my tastes, Falling Waters State Park qualifies as a day trip! It is a fun place to take your nature lovers. A visit to Falling Waters State Park is about 4 hours, round trip in the car. We camped over night so that made the trip much easier on us. Falling Waters has a wonderful campground and is in a beautiful spot. What does Falling Waters State Park have that other parks around us don’t? Well…falling waters, of course! Falling Waters State Park is home to Florida’s highest waterfall. The waterfall, which depending on the season is a slight trickle to a mild flow, flows 73ft into a sinkhole. Because it had rained for almost the entire month, there was water flowing. There are boardwalks over several of the sinkholes so you can go for a walk. There is a small lake where you can cool off. On Saturdays, the park rangers give fireside chats in the camping area. We got to see live snakes that are indigenous to the area. The park has a $4.00 admission fee per car, but if you camp, admission is included in the cost. If you visit, don’t forget to get your Real Florida Passport stamped!
