We absolutely lucked into a site here for just one night. Have tried to get in before but have never planned far enough ahead. It is a great place to spend time and we will be back. The sites seem well kept and ot terribly close together. There is a good mixture of families and seniors but noise was not... More

Great sites. All lots are wooded with privacy. The Culture Center is also interesting. There are craftsman on site. Blacksmith, weavers, etc. stayed three days. Gift shop with a lot of Florida books, gifts. Everyone was very nice, as is the norm for most State Parks. Restrooms are very clean in Campground.

Very quiet and shaded campground. Spacious campsites. Campsites toward back of campground more shaded and private. Fire ring and picnic table at each campsite. No sewer hook ups but has dump station. Lots of pull through sites. Lots of great hiking trails. If you are going there to kayak you should call ahead to see if access to Suwannee river... More

After visiting 2 "parking lot" state park campgrounds, this was a refreshing change. Most sites are spacious and private. Bathrooms and showers were clean, washing machines worked. Fun to see crafts people at work daily. Impressive dioramas in Stephen Foster museum. Hammer dulcimer player was amazing. Snack/craft store had wifi and fresh coffee. Playgrounds would have been great for my... More

We stay here each year in May when our camping club has their Spring Rally. The sites are nice, the roads are paved and the bath houses are clean. Lots of trails for hiking, biking, or riding the golf cart along the Suwanee river. We look forward to coming back year after year.

We stayed in the wonderful cabins at Stephen C. Foster. They back right up to the banks of the Suwanee for ease in putting in a canoe or a nice walk along the river. Don't miss the Carillon with the exhibits inside detailing Foster's life and music, including a handwritten page with the words he wrote to Old Folks at... More

The park is beautiful with well kept gardens. The house is a must to look around and the shop is full of unusual items to buy! The weekend that we stayed over there was a craft fair in the little village on site. Everyone enjoyed explaining what they where up to, this was very engaging. The camp ground sites where... More
