Falling Waters State Park located in Chipley is home to Florida’s tallest waterfall. Falling Waters Sink is a 100-foot deep, 20-foot wide cylindrical pit into which flows a small stream that drops 73 feet to the bottom of the sink. The water’s final destination is unknown.
The park boasts a beautiful butterfly garden where visitors are greeted by migrating and native species of butterflies. Hikers are encouraged to take a cool dip in the lake, have a family picnic, or stop by the amphitheater where park rangers host interactive programs. The park also offers one of Florida’s highest elevated full-facility campsites nestled in a shady pine forest.
The waterfall is fed by several seepage springs that are active only during the wet season. You may want to call ahead before you visit to make sure the water is flowing to avoid disappointment. However, the geological features of this park are still quite spectacular.
