Florida Caverns State Park RV & Campground Guide


Visiting Florida Caverns is an experience like no other! Explore stunning caves and see stalactites, stalagmites, flowstones, draperies, and other amazing geologic formations deep underground. You can also see the chisel marks from the Civilian Conservation Corps as they enlarged tunnels and passages by hand so visitors could better enjoy the area. 

Weather isn’t much concern underground, where precipitation and temperatures stay constant. However, the above ground area of the park is very warm (no surprise for Florida!). The average high temperature in July is 92°F, while it only gets down to 40°F on the cold days of January. Summer brings the rainiest months of the year at the park.
