This was our first time camping at the Suwanee River music campground. We stayed in a “cabin” (Actually a trailer) 220G. There were two bedrooms with queen beds. One bathroom with a standup shower, a kitchen with a refrigerator, stove,microwave,coffee maker(Bring your own coffee and filters), we travel with our Keurig so we did not use the coffee maker. There was TVs in all the rooms however there was no channels. We weren’t in the room much so that was fine. Our cabin would not cool down less than 78° during the day. There was a dehumidifier in there so that helped. Again we weren’t in there much during the day anyway so it didn’t affect us terribly. The cabin appeared to be clean, it’s camping so I didn’t expect it to be like a five star hotel. They definitely have their wear and tear on them. The general store has almost everything, there is a café or restaurant on site with a variety of food and drinks. We had a lot of fun cruising the trails on golf cart. We did the canoeing which was quite an adventure, especially the trip getting to our location to canoe from. Brian hour transportation driver was amazing! We did a two hour canoe trip, totally worth every penny. We visited the bat house in the evening which was quite an experience, very unique. The whole park was pretty amazing, lots of nature, the springs was beautiful and every was kept up very well. Visited the bath house closet to the cabins, they were nice. I was almost going to go over there to shower. Walking in it smells like the Sheraton, which is amazing. They have two shower stalls and several toilet stalls. Very clean. Overall the whole park was pretty amazing, we went during a quiet time, no festivals and right after school started. We enjoyed our visit and will go back!

this is a music park that is designed to hold concerts and large live events. It has a campground and a park for enjoying nature. The park is huge and has activities for everyone of all ages. There are trails, playgrounds, canoeing, and if you re there during some periods, there is music. It is an old park and the facilities show it. Lack of maintenance is evident in he grounds, restrooms, showers, and laundry. They have a huge maintenance staff that zoom around the park on golf carts and side by sides but don't seem to do a lot of maintenance. The front desk staff is less than adequate. questions asked they typically have no answer for. The park has great potential and decorates the areas and trees for holidays. The country store and cafe they have are more than adequate and are actually functional and a pleasure to visit. The biggest regret we had is that no rules are enforced. Visitors and staff do pretty much like they want including speeding through the park. Guests ignore the designated parking areas and again do what they want. All of this reflects the lack of any management that is evident throughout the park. They do rent golf carts to help get around the huge grounds.

Had a Great Time , made new friends. Bring a golf cart or horse if you have one. The property is big ! Golf carts are available to rent but get rented quick. Suwannee lights are beautiful but are an extra charge even if camping. The Facility are Average , I didn’t think the restrooms were clean , I would not use them unless no other choice. I made a reservation and tried to call for a week ,also emailed and left messages got I voicemail back informing of my site, finally after a week a email to answer some of my concerns. I am told by other campers they are short of staff ? On a positive note we had a great time , the fireworks were great , I would like to return in the summer to check it out .

You cannot enter the grounds unless you sign a covid waiver that you hold the park harmless which is fine but then they require you to wear a mask outside when you're not standing in a square that they mark off with paint on the ground. The staff comes up to you and yells at you to put your mask on and to stand in your own assigned box.

They literally treat attendees like a children when it comes to masks and social distancing but couldn't care less that illegal drugs are everywhere. As long as you wore a mask and stood and a box you could do all the drugs you wanted.

The cabins are dirty and overpriced and their golf cart trail fees are a ripoff. The bathrooms are disgusting and the staff is rude.

The whole experience was a jamband show being run by dictators. The most absurd outdoor music festival I have ever seen. I'd been to the park many times before but I will never return again.

The people that run the park should be ashamed of themselves.

They could have something available for their full price menu besides camping in the piney woods. Everything was closed except their cash register. We thought at least we would get to see the river but they blocked off access to that also. That did not stop them from charging us $165 for a single day golf cart that we could only use to view the woods. They claimed the state shut down access to the river but they neglected to factor that into the rate for the golf cart, about ten times what you could rent one for on a golf course where you could actually see something. They were completely unfazed by price gouging complaints!

We rented a two bedroom cabin for our family of five (children 11, 7, and 3). First impressions were that the cabin had not been properly cleaned. Roach droppings inside kitchen cabinets and thick layer of dust on top of refrigerator, which was the only place available to store food. Outside, the deck had obviously not been swept in a while and there was random trash on the picnic table and surrounding ground.

Their website says these cabins sleep 4-6. While it may be possible for 6 adults to sleep inside, I can't imagine any way that they would be comfortable. The kitchen/living area is tiny and the only inside seating was a love seat and two kitchen chairs. When the love seat is pulled out into a bed, it takes up half the room.

The air conditioner is mounted to the wall outside of the main bedroom and shakes the whole cabin.....none of us slept well due to the noise (my wife and I didn't sleep at all).

These are advertised as "Modern Cabins" on their website. We knew that they were mobile units, but the pictures on the website are not representative of what we experienced. Our cabin was basically a FEMA trailer that had an attached deck. If we had just experienced a natural disaster, it would have been a blessing; for a weekend getaway it was a disaster in itself.

Long story short, we only stayed one night out of the three that we paid for. We have attended many music festivals here over the years and thought it would be nice to enjoy the grounds when there wasn't a festival. However, the condition of the cabin was so bad that it was impossible to enjoy our stay.

They make you sign a waiver to get in saying you hold them harmless if you catch covid yet they have staff that yell out you and threaten to kick you out of the park if you don't wear a mask outside. They also make you stand in a marked off box to watch bands play outdoors. Very bizarre and not a place you want to be. Lots of drug use and sales but they don't seem to care about that.

We visited this park during New Year's, which I believe is ok ne of their more busier times. I called two weeks before arriving al to see if there was anything I needed to know before arriving and to check on renting a golf cart. I was told then that golf cart rental was $50/day and that I could rent one when I arrived. Once we arrived and realized that a golf cart was not necessary, but totally worth it, I went that day to get a cart to find out that there was a waiting list so long that I would most likely not get a cart for the week that we were there, but it was also $65/day (which I would have still paid). I say all this because it would have been good information to know the 2 weeks prior when I called to ask for information.
Otherwise, we had a great time. The park is huge and has so many activities for everyone of all ages. There are trails, playgrounds, canoeing, and of course music. We were traveling with a 2 year old and they had a snow day with sledding and inflatables and the Christmas lights were great. We didnt use the bath houses or laundry and we did request a picnic table at our site the first day and it never came. Sunshine Trail sites 40 & up are very roomy!

Big camp ground with lots of amenities, cafe, store, golf carts, great entertainment and right on the Suwannee River. Can get rather pricey especially during events. The park is well kept up and clean, the staff are always very friendly and helpful.
Went to the jam about four times and had a great time. A little noisy and lots of traffic but it comes with the event.

This park is so large, it's easy to get lost! Facilities are mostly in tact.... mostly kept.... the river is its biggest draw. And it's lovely! Dark, tea-colored water lapping against sugar-white sandy beaches. But the staff.... when you ask if something can be done, they look at you with no expression, no response, no movement, no acknowledgement. Nothing. Nada. I was quite non-plussed. You must followup on requests. One of two I made was never done. The park is not secure. Local teens come in and stole a golf cart while we were here, running it down to the river. And it was LOCKED. Bathrooms were rarely restocked, or cleaned. There is much here that could be improved, but you need staff that cares and responds.
