Description

As the name suggests, Florida Caverns State Park is home to a series of otherworldly caves. Visitors can travel into the earth and see firsthand the fascinating stalagmites, stalactites, flowstones, and draperies. Plus, the cool temperatures are a welcome relief from the muggy Florida temperatures.

The mystical caverns are definitely worth checking out. Unfurtunately, doggos are not allowed inside the caves. So if you plan on venturing inside the earth, leave your pal behind with another member of your paw-ty. As soon as you are reunited with your beloved pup, you can hit the trails!

Your four legged friend will love the Floodplain Trail. Since it’s flat and straight, it’s not at all difficult. But the rock tunnel at the end makes it a quirky little hike. Once your pooch comes out the other side of the tunnel, they’ll be ready for Bluffs Hiking Trail. If your pup was missing the challenge from the first trail, they will be happy to know this one is a bit trickier. Watch your footing as you walk along the limestone bluff that overlooks Chipola River floodplain. Magnolia-Beech Trail is the other option. This lovely little trail meanders through a beautiful forest and across footbridges. It’s a perfect ending to your pup’s hiking adventure.

Puptacular caves and hiking aren’t the only features that draw visitors to this Florida state park. Canoeing on the Chipola Rivers gives folks the chance to spot some of the local wildlife like alligators, beavers, snakes, and birds.While at the park, you can also fish, search for geocaches, explore on horseback, and cycle. The park  has over 30 campsites for RVs and tents, not to mention the playground for two legged children and furrific picnic facilities for day trippers. 

During your visit, remember to always have some clean up bags on hand and carry plenty of water for both you and your dog. Florida Caverns State Park will make your pup's tail wag!
