We left Big Lagoon State Park by Pensacola FL this morning and headed east on I-10 through the Florida panhandle about 130 miles.
We arrived at Falling Waters State Park after noon. There are only 24 campsites in the campground and they are booked full. Our gravel site was not level and had some deep ruts in it from the recent rains. But since we’re only here for one night it will do.
The campground sits on one of the highest hills in the whole state of Florida at 324 feet above sea level.
The sun did not make an appearance today and it is cool and damp. After getting the RV parked and set up we went to see the park. There is a small pond with a beach and swimming area.
And a boardwalk takes you by and around a system of sinkholes, a natural feature in this park.
The most notable sinkhole is Falling Waters Sink, 100 feet deep, into which a waterfall plunges and disappears into an underground channel.
We saw some kids who left the boardwalk and climbed into the restricted area to get a closer look at the inside of the sinkholes while mom took pictures.
The only wildlife we saw was a squirrel. Different coloring than we’re used to in Minnesota.
