“Great cabins!”
Reviewed January 28, 2014 via mobile

Just spent two nights in Cabin 1! Really comfortable. Large and well equipped! Wraparound porch that was roomy and screened with rockers and picnic table and porch swing nestled in the trees. Our friends were camping and we all loved this beautiful location! Electric fireplace was very cozy! Rangers Rianna and Sandra were particularly friendly and helpful!

“Sites could've be spaced out more”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

This was my first trip to Suwannee River State Park. I was disappointed at how close the site were to one another. We stayed on site 5 which has power and water hook ups. There was no privacy between sites which was disappointing.

As for the rest rooms and showers they were the best maintained that I have seen yet. The park and VOLENTEER staff kept it and the park in excellent condition.

The hiking trails were fairly easy to navigate, however some of the bridges and paths were very slippery after a rain fall. I guess that should be expected buy a sign or two wouldn't hurt and could save unexpected injury. That said the views were outstanding and would decently return.

“What a Lovely Park”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

This is a lovely place. Peaceful and shady campground with one of my favorite rivers, the Suwannee, meandering through. We camped in early fall and although campers across the main road were a bit loud one night, everyone was very friendly and helpful. We didn't have our bikes, which we'll bring next time. We'll also rent a canoe next trip. Our exploration of the Suwannee River has just begun! We'll be back!

“The Last campsite”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Upon arrival at the park there was only one spot left so we gladly accepted it after traveling from Jacksonville. The Ranger was polite and informational. The grounds are covered in Pine needles which made the site soft to place the tent on. We got there late so we immediately put the kayak in the water and paddled up stream looking for places to do some night photography and as we turned a few bends we came across Balancing Rock. So we turned back downstream pulled the kayak in and headed into town for some food and firewood. So we headed down to Ken's BBQ and had what people have told me why they drive an hour to get some great BBQ. We than drove back towards the Park, if you go right past the park there is a gas station that sells wood at a reasonable rate. and basics you might wanna grab. Over all I was impressed with the cleanness of the park and how nice everyone was. The only downside was how close the sites are leaves for a lot of talk form surrounding camp grounds.

After us trying our hand at making a sustainable fire and succeeding we venture off to Balancing Rock to capture the moment i saw from the rivers edge.

“Beautiful park”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Suwannee is a beautiful state park that is extremely well maintained. We camped in a travel trailer and found the sites clean and fairly level (some are concrete slabs). The public bathrooms and showers were spotless and convenient to most camp sites. Will stay here, again, when in the area.
