False advertising! Disappointed.
Mar 2021
Ultimately, my wife and I were disappointed. They charged a $5 admission fee (honor system), but failed to disclose at that time the the stairs down to the pit were closed due to Covid (?)--an outdoor venue!! Further, the bridge over a dry river bed was closed for repair, which means that we could not complete a loop on a standard trail. If they were going to be totally honest, these two features should have been disclosed at the time one pays the admission. Even the indoor sightseeing venue was closed!!!!

Now is not the time to visit, it’s just a walk in the woods
Jan 2021 • Family
Yes we did know that the bridge and steps to the sinkhole were closed as it’s stated on website. But in addition there is a “bridge closure” that means you can not walk the loop. You need to turn around and pass everyone walking the path. Makes you wonder why you can’t walk the steps because of two way traffic, but can walk the trail passing each other. You also can’t see anything of the sinkhole from the path. We’ll return when things are open again.

Not Good
Sep 2020
This place is a joke! Do not believe the photos they post on their website. After a trip there...we never saw one water fall whatsoever. An over grown woods with LOTS of walking up and down and around. We didn't see much at all. I would avoid wasting your time here! And it costs money!
BEWARE...check out other locations first such as:
Cedar Lakes Woods and Gardens in Williston, FL not too far away. Now...this is a hidden treasure and so beautiful! There is a fee but...well worth the trip!

Very disappointing - most areas closed
Oct 2020 • Couples
All areas are closed except the walking path, which is not that long. The sinkhole and stairs leading to it are closed, there are no waterfalls as some have mentioned. A WASTE OF TIME!! Don’t bother. As you drive in, there is a box that you put $4 in an envelope and put the receipt on your dashboard. You start walking toward the path and you realize everything you came to see is closed. Very disappointing. After complaining to the person in the office, she gave us a free coupon to Enter any other national park in Florida. What a bummer this was.

Partially Closed
May 2020
Beware you must have $4 exact cash to visit. There's a payment booth but no cards are accepted nor any change available, so be prepared! There is a sinkhole and waterfall here, but unfortunately due to COVID19 they have blocked off the bridge and stairs that lead to these beautiful areas. The nature trail is still worth a visit even if the main events are closed off.

Was an amazing place. We were lucky enough to be there while a musician played his flute and it brought the place to life and it remained serene. MANY step so be prepared to go all the way to the base. Yes its a sink hole but what isn't in FL so it the natural beauty

Perfect place for a nature walk
Aug 2019 • Couples
We took our dog and went on a nice walk around the short trail, there are many trees and they are identified, which is interesting. They finally repaired the stairs to the sinkhole that were damages since Irma and it is exciting to be able to get so close to the water.

Nice place to explore

Make sure you wear good athletic shoes. The walk down is not to bad but the walk up is strenuous if you are not in shape. Very pretty and unusual place.

A nice Florida Park to visit. Well maintained and clean rest rooms available, easy walkway down and up with resting areas along the way. Have $4.00 for park entrance when entering parking area.

A worthy place to check out.
Feb 2020
An unexpected spot to check out.....after all it's a massive sinkhole but the hike down to see it, is well worth the time to walk all those stairs. The water is a beautiful blue, the greenery around it gorgeous and the trail is quite nice.
