Florida’s largest waterfall is the 73-foot located in Falling Waters State Park in Chipley, Florida. When we visited the park it hadn’t been raining much and so the water flow was not as much. If you plan your visit, you might just be able to see the waterfall in its full force!
This park is also the host for the very first oil well in Florida which according to a 400-year-old Spanish diary, dates back to 1919. There’s also what used to be an oil well, which we found super curious.
When we first arrived at the park, we immediately noticed the difference compared to the ones in Central Florida. Falling Waters is unlike any other park we’ve seen!
We also found many sinkholes around the park during our visit and we fell in love with the beautiful tall trees right at the entrance of the park.
Camping in Falling Waters State Park
