Description:This is one of the few state parks with dry (air filled) caves and is the only Florida state park to offer cave tours to the public. The cave has dazzling formations of limestone stalactites, stalagmites, soda straws, flowstones, and draperies.

Stables are available for equestrian campers. The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes and is considered to be moderately strenuous.

We went there on Halloween for a special history lesson and performance by the staff of area legends and civil war tales. The next day we explored the entire cavern. The camping area was nice and facilities were clean but not within walking distance of the cavern. There are also lots of hiking trails around the cavern. This tour is not for children who are afraid of the dark or anyone who is clausterphobic!

We took 9-13 year olds and everyone really enjoyed it. This could be difficult with young children, but our trip was great. The guides were friendly and there is a nice place to watch a video tour if you are unable to go through the caverns.
