Florida Caverns State Park

One of the few state parks with dry (air-filled) caves, Florida Caverns State Park is the only state park in Florida to offer cave tours to the public. The sheer beauty of the dazzling formations of limestone stalactites, stalagmites, soda straws, flowstones and draperies will leave you in awe. The Chipola River and a freshwater spring provide areas for fishing, canoeing and boating. Florida Caverns State Park is popular for camping, picnicking and horseback riding. The park does not rent horses, however stables are available for equestrian campers.

The park also features a nine-hole, New Deal-era golf course set in beautiful rolling terrain. The entrance is adjacent to the main park entrance; contact the Florida Caverns Golf Course at (850) 482-4257.

Guided cave tours are offered Thursday through Monday except Thanksgiving and Christmas (no cave tours on Tuesday and Wednesday). The tour lasts 35-40 minutes and is considered to be moderately strenuous. An audiovisual program about touring the cave and other natural areas of the park is available in the visitor center. Camping reservations may be made by visiting ReserveAmerica.com or by calling ReserveAmerica at (800) 326-3521, TDD (888) 433-0287. Annual special events include Spirits of the Caverns in October. Other events and ranger programs are available. Located three miles north of Marianna on State Road 166.

Florida Caverns State Park is approximately North-Northeast of Panama City Beach.
