The trees, the moss hanging from the trees, the shade.. just amazing. Spirit lake is so gorgeuous and relaxing. There is a swamp back in there as well. Staff was very friendly. Nice and quiet and relaxing area. Not far from a Wal-mart, about 10 mins, in case you run out of anything.

We stopped here for about an hour as break from driving. The paths along the river are delightful. Spanish moss drapes the old live oaks and the sun glinted off the river. Lots of shade in the woods. The park has a campground which we checked out. Electrical outlets and nice wooded sites. About half occupied in late October.

Checked out this park while we were in the area. The live oak trees and the river were beautiful. Park was very quiet and very clean. Lots of walking trails and a nice playground.

There is no WIFI and no cable TV hookup. We use AT&T and had two bars here with intermittent 4G and LTE for cellular but always had service.

Our family just returned from four days of camping at Suwannee River State Park in Llve Oak, Florida. The park is absolutely beautiful. The campground is small, so not so busy. Bathrooms are clean. The water level was dangerously high, so no one could paddle this weekend. We still had a blast with our teen children, off road biking and... More

Fish, kayak, canoe, picnic. If you enjoy the outdoors without all the hype of commercial spots, you will love this place.
