A day by Florida's highest waterfall
Updated: Sep 23
Falling Waters State Park - Chipley, Fl - September 5th 2020
As a Florida resident there are so many nice coastal places and state parks to visit and so many that I have not had the pleasure of visiting yet. This was not only my first time at this beautiful state park, but it was also my first time in Chipley. I reside in Panama City Beach so it's only a little over an hour away. That's awesome because I definitely plan on visiting again. You see a pretty good amount of land for a small fee of $5.00 per car.
The main attraction is the waterfall. It is the highest waterfall in the state of Florida at 73 ft. One of the coolest things about this place is the walkways that are built into the land which give more than one view of the waterfall. It's great craftsmanship which offers a bit of a different walk through most of the trails due to the fact that you are not walking on the ground like most state park trails I have visited.
That really isn't that big of a deal, but it's certainly a cool little luxury. There is also a pretty nice sized lake that not only offers more nice scenery but it has a small beach area for you to be able to relax or get in the lake if you choose to do so. I also thought the sinkholes were cool. We were able to spend a few hours there and really enjoyed our time. There aren't too many state parks that offer a legit waterfall, so if this is something you would be interested in seeing along with some forest and other things then I would recommend Falling Waters State Park.
There was a sign that showed information about Black Bears and what to do if you were to come in contact with one. I wasn't lucky enough to see one.
Yes, I wanted to see a Bear. A Black Bear is not a grizzly so it's not going to attack a human, but maybe next time i'll see one.
