Florida Caverns is a 1300 acre park which surprisingly has only 32 RV campsites and borders the spring-fed Chipola River. The park's primary attraction is limestone caves pictures of which can be viewed here: Florida Caverns Caves (after caving in New Mexico I skipped this tour). The guided cave tour costs $8 per person. There is also the Blue Hole Spring where both swimming and fishing is allowed.

The park's Upper Chipola trails offer 6 miles of biking, hiking or horseback exploration.

The Chipola River is canoe-able and there is a canoe rental concession along it.
|Canoes for rent.|
1300 acres is a lot of park space although a considerable portion of it looks like this:
|I'm sure there's no gators in there!|
For so much space the campsites were curiously close to one another.

Along with the adjacent Florida Caverns 18 hole golf course there's a lot to do at Florida Caverns State Park. The weather was perfect during my stay -- sunny, high 70's and low humidity. It's a great stop for cave lovers and I'd recommend it.
