Falling Waters State Park in Florida


Falling Waters State Park is located 3 miles south of Chipley, Florida. The park has campsite with available electricity, picnic tables, and grills. Nature lovers can take a walk through the trails and might spot a pileated woodpecker pecking at a pine tree. To cool off, you can take a dip in their two-acre lake or walk along the white sands beach. Fishing is permitted for those who have a freshwater fishing license. 


The main attraction at this state park is a 73-foot waterfall cascading over the edge of a steep rock. This is Florida’s highest waterfall and I was proud to witness its splendor. I wouldn’t suggest visiting in winter though! The wind and cold releases its fury and has no mercy.


Among the waters, I saw a beautiful rainbow.

Falling Waters has natural features such as various sinkholes. They actually served as a hideout for native American warriors during the Seminole Wars.

At Falling Waters, a butterfly garden is prepared each year for migrating butterflies. Wildflowers and nectar rich varieties provide food for weary travelers.
