Explore stunning caves and chilly cold springs at Florida Caverns State Park in the Florida panhandle. The park’s caves have a long and interesting geologic history beginning 38 million years ago when sea levels were much higher and the southeastern coastal plain of the United States was submerged.
This has resulted in dazzling stalactites, stalagmites, flowstone and other fragile cave-drip formations. The park’s bluffs, springs and caves are known as karst terrain, and the caves provide habitat for blind cave crayfish, cave salamanders and three species of cave-roosting bats.
