Beautiful park

The park is clean and well kept. Nature at its best and plenty to enjoy while you are there. Enjoy kayaking down the river or just sit back and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Suwannee River State Park is the perfect location to enjoy the sublime beauty of north central Florida. It's a large state park with Twin Rivers State Forest adjacent to provide an expansive swath of undeveloped land and river to enjoy. There is a lovely 3 mile trail, Balanced Rock Trail, that starts by the boat ramp and winds upstream along... More

Stopped by the park while I was passing by the area and was amazed the springs exist. They are crystal clear and amazing to swim in. The water was very refreshing in the 94 degree heat. The water cool and crisp. I plan on returning to try tubbing down the river. I recommend bring flip flops or water shoes, sunscreen,towel... More

Being a native of Florida, I have often passed this park from I-10... thinking I need to stop there someday. Well, here I am 47 years later (for my birthday) I really rented a sweet little cabin #3. Okay so I'm cheating a lil with the AC and bed.. but it's MY birthday!! I loved this place. The cabin has... More

Nice park. Trails that loop, and hookup with Florida Trail also. Hidden springs, black water. Boatramp, many campsites and cabins. Close to music park. Not close enough to hear it. Very quiet even on the busiest days. Canoe, boat, kayak. Historical area.

This park is one of my favorites! It has great trails for hiking, all are clearly marked, and different areas that give a detailed history of what happened in the area. The cemetary dates back to easily the 1800's and I've always found a wild critter or two on my treks. Only a deer or squirrel, once even a tortoise!... More

Our stay was very enjoyable. The park was clean and well maintained. The sites are well cared for. Everything worked properly and we had no service outages. The park is quiet with all guests respectful of other guests. The nature walks are well maintained and there were sufficient signs to inform us of many things worth seeing. We will definitely...

Our first stay at Suwanee River State Park was to attend the 64th Florida Folk Festival in White Springs. The 30-mile drive to and from the park was all on well paved back roads and very pleasant. The park itself appears well managed, but there is a skeleton crew of rangers that maintains it. A campground host cleans the restrooms,... More

My husband and adult daughter and I ventured from Tallahassee, Florida after attending a high school graduation. We were accompanied by our new puppy Madison 3 1/2 months old and grandson Tyler 5 years old. The Swanee River State Park was just what we needed to give Madison and Tyler some play time. The wind blew as campers drove boats... More
